Experimental and numerical studies on landslide dam failure and the induced flood and morphological changes by Jiangtao YANG

Louvain-la-Neuve

Place des Sciences, auditorium A.02 SCES

Landslide dams are natural dams that are formed by the blockage of a river channel with landslides, rock falls and debris flows. Landslide dams are prone to overtopping failure shortly after their formation, resulting in catastrophic floods in the downstream areas, further posing a great danger to the local residents and altering the local environment.

Discontinuous Galerkin Methods for River and Delta flow simulations by Insaf Draoui

Place Sainte Barbe, auditorium BARB 92

Understanding and predicting the hydrodynamics of river systems is a challenging, yet crucial task for managing the land-sea continuum. Considering the goal of maintaining an acceptable accuracy level with acceptable calculation time, various modeling approaches can be investigated to address this challenge. This thesis contributes to enhancing the robustness of the one-dimensional component of SLIM (www.slim-ocean.be) by focusing on improving its reliability and performance through several key contributions.

MicroCT and contrast-enhanced microCT imaging to improve treatments for cardiovascular diseases by Lisa Leyssens

Place Croix du Sud, auditorium SUD 09

Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death and disability worldwide. Atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory disease, characterized by the buildup of plaque within the arterial walls causing blood vessel narrowing, and is the primary cause of many cardiovascular diseases. Two of the main surgical treatments for atherosclerosis include synthetic vascular grafting and intravascular stenting. However, these treatments face many problems and need to be improved to reduce the number of people facing disability.

X-Ray Based 3D Histology of Soft Biological Tissues Using Cryogenic Contrast-Enhanced MicroCT by Arne Maes

“Form follows function” reflects an established principle in biology, which states that the structure of biological tissues and organs is closely linked to their in vivo functioning. Therefore, histology, or the structural study of biological tissues at the microscale, is crucial to fully understand tissue functioning, and to assess the implications of pathologies on its microstructure and the outcome of treatments. The current golden standard comprises classical 2D histology, in which the tissue is embedded, sectioned, and then microscopically assessed.

Quantification of trunk muscle forces through multibody models and non-invasive experimental measurements by Simon Hinnekens

Place Sainte Barbe, auditorium BARB 92

In biomechanics, spine modelling allows the calculation of intervertebral efforts. The latter reflect the combined effect of spine geometry, spine kinematics and muscle forces. Although the geometry and kinematics of the spine are well known, the estimation of muscle forces is still one of the major challenges in spine modelling. For their quantification, hybrid approaches may be a good opportunity to consider the individual muscle strategy, thanks to electromyography (EMG) signals from an upfront experiment as input to the model.
