Design flaws often become apparent at a time when the product is already in use and its development process, which in many cases includes extensive testing of parts, components and prototypes, is considered complete. Such flaws may reach from poor ergonomics to the total failure of the product. Often, especially when user safety is at risk, design flaws are so severe that companies are forced to announce a product callback. Petroski suggests that many (if not most) products, which we are familiar with today, have a long history of previously flawed designs [3]. This implies that designers did indeed learn from design flaws in both senses of the word “learn”: discovering the flaw and utilizing the knowledge gained about it to find a solution. As far as discovering a design flaw is concerned, it can be assumed that the feedback from those who interact with the physical products in practice – the individuals who maintain, repair, recycle but essentially use the products – plays an important role. In their previous work, the authors pointed out hat this feedback information could not only be vital for identifying potential product hazards but helps designers to review the effects of their design measures and therefore to improve their products from generation to generation [4]. In order to obtain a better understanding of how designers learn from design flaws, a mail survey was conducted that aimed at investigating company-, process- and product-related factors of this phenomenon and to answer (among others) the following research questions: • To what extent are design flaws of a company’s (or a competitor’s) product a driving force in the development of new products? • How do the designers of a company become aware of design flaws of their products? • How successful are companies in correcting design flaws? • How do successful and unsuccessful companies differ in terms of size, activity profile of their designers and characteristics of their products? • What are possible factors that influence the success in correcting a design fault?

Le présent ouvrage reproduit les actes du colloque de Luxembourg du 11 décembre 2003 consacré au trust et à la nouvelle fiducie luxembourgeoise. D'éminents spécialistes du trust et de la Convention de La Haye du 1er juillet 1985 éclairent utilement cette institution clé des pays de Common Law et les solutions de droit international posées par la Convention. La confrontation du trust avec les pays de droit civil est approfondie à la lumière de l'expérience du Grand-Duché qui a ratifié la Convention de La Haye tout en procédant à une réforme substantielle de la fiducie luxembourgeoise. Les auteurs de l'avant-projet de loi présentent en détail la loi du 27 juillet 2003 relative au trust et aux contrats fiduciaires dont l'étude est complétée par l'examen du traitement fiscal. L'ouvrage s'adresse à tous ceux qui s'intéressent au trust et à la fiducie notamment en France, en Belgique et en Suisse où l'on songe à ratifier la Convention de La Haye et à consacrer législativement la fiducie.

High performance Brillouin microscopy (BM) has been used to characterize the spatial distribution of piezoelectrically induced acoustic fields excited at microwave frequencies in a LiNbO3 single crystal. It is demonstrated that under suitable conditions BM is able to detect microwave-induced bulk as well as surface acoustic waves. Brillouin spectroscopy is able to probe sound wave intensities of induced phonons, which are as small as those of thermal phonons. [less ▲]
