Background: Several sawfly larvae of the Tenthredinidae (Hymenoptera) are called easy bleeders because their whole body integument, except the head capsule, disrupts very easily at a given spot, under a slight mechanical stress at this spot. The exuding haemolymph droplet acts as a feeding deterrent towards invertebrate predators. The present study aimed to… (More)
This paper addresses continuous optimization problems with multiple objectives and parameter uncertainty defined by probability distributions. First, a reliability-based formulation is proposed, defining the nondeterministic Pareto set as the minimal solutions such that user-defined probabilities of nondominance and constraint satisfaction are guaranteed.… (More)
This study addresses the problem of optimizing mechanical components during the first stage of the design process. While a previous work focused on pa-rameterized designs with fixed configurations-which led to the development of the PAMUC (Preferences Applied to MlJltwbjectivity and Constraints) method, for solving multicriteria constrained problems within… (More)

It is well known today that the standard finite element method (FEM) is unreliable to compute approximate solutions of the Helmholtz equation for high wavenumbers due to the pollution effect, consisting mainly of the dispersion, i.e. the numerical wavelength is longer than the exact one. Unless highly refined meshes are used, FEM solutions lead to… (More)

The objective of this case report is to describe the first case of renal actinomycosis caused by Actinomyces meyeri presenting as severe emphysematous pyelonephritis and complicated by septic shock and multi-organ failure. Emphysematous pyelonephritis is a potentially life-threatening infection mostly described in diabetic patients and predominantly caused… (More)
