The adsorption or adhesion of large particles (proteins, colloids, cells,. . .) at the liquid-solid interface plays an important role in many diverse applications. Despite the apparent complexity of the process, two features are particularly important: 1) the adsorption is often irreversible on experimental time scales and 2) the adsorption rate is limited(More)
is an open access repository that collects the work of Arts et Métiers ParisTech researchers and makes it freely available over the web where possible. a b s t r a c t Expanded polypropylene foams (EPP) can be used to absorb shock energy. The performance of these foams has to be studied as a function of several parameters such as density, microstructure and(More)
A dynamic crash loading experiment is performed on a polypropylene foam used in composite sandwich structures for safety applications. Several interrupted shocks are conducted, in between which microtomographic acquisitions are made, showing the evolution of the sample during its compression. This data can help construct and validate predictive models,(More)
The global aim of the SIMUSURF project is to optimize the control of the trajectory of the moving platform of a hexapod to reproduce surfing trajectories in controlled environment. The first step of this study was to constitute a database precisely defining the different relations between the loads of the surfer and the dynamic of his surfboard. An(More)
