The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) has a major role in protein folding. The accumulation of unfolded proteins in the ER induces a stress, which can be resolved by the unfolded protein response (UPR). Chronicity of ER stress leads to UPR-induced apoptosis and in turn to an unbalance of tissue homeostasis. Although ER stress-dependent apoptosis is observed in a(More)
The polymer cast film process induces some geometrical defects : the width reduction (neck-in defect) and the inhomogeneous decrease of the thickness distribution (edge bead defect). These defects prevent from predicting the film final dimensions and thus from a high industrial productivity. In this paper, a numerical model developed by the authors is used(More)
Hyperbolic transport (or convection) equations are omnipresent in uid ow problems. Such equations occur for example in particle tracking , computation of residence time, etc. A transport equation is used on a so called pseudo-concentration function to reproduce the evolution of the interfaces between uid layers for coextrusion and lm casting problems or to(More)
