• C'était un matin comme les autres. Sauf que Marine était là et que Thomas en était follement amoureux. Ensemble, ils sont allés sur la plage, jusque dans la grotte, où il espérait toujours découvrir un trésor. Et là, horreur ! dans ce lieu désert, des hurlements... Alors, ils ont pris la fuite. Cependant, au plus profond de la grotte, l'homme s'était levé. Nu, puissant, brutal, un homme venu d'une autre époque, un homme qui ne connaissait que la guerre, un reître...

  • Un roman qui a pour cadre une île étrange, sans aucun contact avec le monde, peuplée, dit-on, de naufragés... A partir de 12 ans.

  • Odile adore la lecture. Une passion bien inoffensive d'habitude ! Mais depuis qu'elle a emprunté à la bibliothèque un vieux livre d'ornithologie, les événements extraordinaires se multiplient. Jusqu'à la disparition d'un de leurs amis retrouvé... vidé de son sang. Quelles redoutables créatures guettent donc Odile et ses amis derrière les rayonnages ? Un mystérieux village du Lot, où ils sont partis en colonie de vacances, abriterait la clé du mystère...

  • Veterinary Surgical Oncology provides in-depth coverage of surgical techniques for treating cancer in small animal patients. Organized by body system, each chapter presents detailed, well-illustrated descriptions of surgical procedures, with additional information on diagnostic testing, aftercare, outcomes, and prognosis. Edited and authored by members of the Veterinary Society of Surgical Oncologists, Veterinary Surgical Oncology's comprehensive coverage of surgical treatments for cancer provides an invaluable decision-making tool and is equally useful for veterinary surgeons and veterinary oncologists. The book begins with introductory chapters on the principles of surgical oncology, multimodal therapy, and interventional radiology, then presents chapters on surgical techniques in all anatomical structures, including procedures not well covered in existing literature. The first book to focus on the surgical aspects of cancer treatment, Veterinary Surgical Oncology is an essential reference for anyone with an interest in surgical oncology.

  • In this book, recent developments in our understanding of fundamental vortex ring and jet dynamics will be discussed, with a view to shed light upon their near-field behaviour which underpins much of their far-field characteristics. The chapters provide up-to-date research findings by their respective experts and seek to link near-field flow physics of vortex ring and jet flows with end-applications in mind. Over the past decade, our knowledge on vortex ring and jet flows has grown by leaps and bounds, thanks to increasing use of high-fidelity, high-accuracy experimental techniques and numerical simulations. As such, we now have a much better appreciation and understanding on the initiation and near-field developments of vortex ring and jet flows under many varied initial and boundary conditions. Chapter 1 outlines the vortex ring pinch-off phenomenon and how it relates to the initial stages of jet formations and subsequent jet behaviour, while Chapter 2 takes a closer look at the behaviour resulting from vortex ring impingement upon solid boundaries and how the use of a porous surface alters the impingement process. Chapters 3 and 4 focus upon the formation of synthetic jets from vortex ring structures experimentally and numerically, the challenges in understanding the relationships between their generation parameters and how they can be utilized in flow separation control problems. Chapter 5 looks at the use of imposing selected nozzle trailing-edge modifications to effect changes upon the near-field dynamics associated with circular, noncircular and coaxial jets, with a view to control their mixing behaviour. And last but not least, Chapter 6 details the use of unique impinging jet configurations and how they may lend themselves towards greater understanding and operating efficacies in heat transfer problems. This book will be useful to postgraduate students and researchers alike who wish to get up to speed regarding the latest developments in vortex ring and jet flow behaviour and how their interesting flow dynamics may be put into good use in their intended applications.
