Measurement-based approaches with extreme value worst-case estimations are beginning to be proficiently considered for timing analyses. In this paper, we intend to make more formal extreme value theory applicability to safe worst-case execution time estimations. We outline complexities and challenges behind extreme value theory assumptions and parameter(More)
INTRODUCTION Persistent peritonitis is a frequent complication of secondary peritonitis requiring additional reoperations and antibiotic therapy. This situation raises specific concerns due to microbiological changes in peritoneal samples, especially the emergence of multidrug-resistant (MDR) strains. Although this complication has been extensively studied,(More)
BACKGROUND We assessed the clinical features and outcome of morbidly obese patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) for management of postoperative peritonitis (POP) following bariatric surgery (BS). METHODS In a prospective, observational, surgical ICU cohort, we compared the clinical features, empiric antibiotic therapy, and prognosis of BS(More)
This paper deals with the modelling of plasma discharges induced by electrohydrodynamic actuators. We propose a multi-model method based on fluid conservation equations that allows an increase of the maximum time step imposed by usual explicit schemes. The idea consists in replacing the numerical integration of the plasma equations at the vicinity of the(More)
A mechanical spike is a device used to mechanically act on the bow shock ahead of an airplane in supersonic ight. This action results in improved ight conditions. We will investigate here the eects of the axial generation of a two-hundred-micrometer width cylindrical plasma ahead a quasi-realistic nose prole of centimeter width. The device is named plasma(More)
