The historical conflict between the European Court of Justice (ECJ) and the national constitutional courts regarding primacy is a misunderstanding. In going through the looking-glass, we can understand that, on the contrary, the ECJ and the national constitutional courts adopt comparable solutions in their treatment of legal pluralism, and that they see the negation of pluralism as essential for the survival of their own legal orders. Therefore, these judges must be offered a new theoretical context to help them reconcile their role as supreme guardian with the taking into account of the pluralist context. Finally, practical proposals must be made to give judges the instruments and techniques that are capable of reflecting this plural structure. [less ▲]

This paper presents an overview of a study of 24 people who used an augmented reality game called TimeWarp. The paper initially discusses the game and evaluation methods chosen, it then explores emerging issues from the evaluation which are applicable to other augmented reality games and how existing user testing methods require further improvements in order to capture data relevant to the issues.

The behaviour of headed shear studs in fatigue loading in composite steel- and concrete constructions is presented. In contrast to the traditional way to conduct fatigue tests in a force-controlled manner, the tests have been conducted displacement-controlled. The evaluation of the test data with the Ramberg-Osgood equation allowed the creation of a shear force – slip amplitude diagram and its separation into an ‘elastic’ and a ‘plastic’ part for the long-term and the short-term behaviour. This diagram can be used to model the load-deformation behaviour of the shear studs in fatigue loading in composite bridges. [less ▲]

This thesis is built around two parts, both related to the protection of privacy in computer networks, and more precisely on the Internet. In the first part, we propose a system allowing the establishment of unobservable interactive communications, unobservable meaning an observer can neither pinpoint the destination(s) of those communications, nor, in fact, know if there are real communications in the first place ! This system aims to provide an unequaled level of protection, as even a very powerful observer should not be able to bypass it. This protection is based on Onion-Routing and adds innovative methods against traffic analysis. In the second part, we take a closer look at the DNS protocol. While it is possible to protect it with our proposition described in the first part, this degrades performance, specifically latency, which has an impact on those protocols using DNS. In this part, we propose a DNS specific solution, providing both a good level of protection and better performance. These two systems can be combined of course, but they can also be used as separate bricks with other privacy enhancing mechanisms too. [less ▲]

Ce mémoire présente ma mission, en tant que psychologue ergonome, de coordination de groupes de travail dans le cadre d’un challenge santé-sécurité s’inscrivant dans une démarche essentiellement participative. Les groupes présentés ici à titre d’illustration sont ceux qui sont en lien direct avec l’ergonomie ou la psychologie du travail. Une étude complémentaire, présentée comme une réflexion sur la pratique de l’ergonome et s’intéressant particulièrement aux contributions d’une démarche participative à la promotion de la santé et de la sécurité au travail, servira de toile de fond à ce dossier.

Both a circular slip surface stability calculation (Bishop or Fellenius) and a Finite Element Method calculation (c-phi reduction) produce a safety factor but not a probability of failure or reliability index. A Monte-Carlo method leads, because of the many slip surface calculations, to the most accurate calculation of the probability of safety, but this method is far too time consuming for daily FEM calculations. The idea is therefore to replace the Monte-Carlo approach by a First Order Reliability Method (FORM), based on a limited number of FEM calculations. A possible problem with this FORM is, that variable soil parameters create a correlated and therefore variable failure mechanism. However, FORM gives an indication of this non-linear behaviour and in most cases an accurate probability of failure of the structure can be calculated. This article gives a complete example of the calculation of the probability of failure of a dyke ring along a river, based on a limited number of Phi-C reduction calculations with Plaxis. The input data for this calculation is based on a limited number of given soil test data. [less ▲]

Increasing student and lecturer mobility along with the spread of English as an academic lingua franca (Mauranen, 2006) means a growing number of university lecturers in Europe are delivering at least some lectures in English. Well-designed English for Academic Purposes (EAP) courses can help lecturers whose first language is not English in meeting this challenge and findings from corpus linguistic research on authentic lectures are invaluable in informing decisions about the development of such courses. However, a comprehensive corpus-based account of language use in English language lectures does not exist, although recent publications by Biber (2006) and Crawford Camiciottoli (2007) constitute significant contributions to such a description. This paper presents the results of a qualitative corpus-based study of common language functions in lectures (e.g. predicting, describing, reporting, interpreting, evaluating) as related to the overall purposes of lectures such as knowledge transfer and the socialization of students into disciplinary communities. The investigation is based on a manual analysis of lectures selected from the British Academic Spoken English (BASE) Corpus. In contrast to most existing studies, this study is motivated by the spoken language needs of lecturers rather than by student (listening comprehension) needs and is not restricted by a focus on pre-determined linguistic features that can be searched and quantified. The current non-quantified language description thus hopes to demonstrate the value of insights that can only come from reading and studying a corpus from a more global perspective using qualitative methods.
