  • Patent number: 7155874
    Abstract: This invention relates to an elongated hollow non-deformable structure that can be used as beams and pillars of modular building structures. The structure includes first and second elongated C-shaped channels (20) with inwardly bent flanges (25) and means for holding the two channels (20) together so that the flanges (25) contact each other. The first and second C-shaped channels (20) may be formed without flanges (25). L-shaped (42) and T-shaped (40) and H-shaped flanges of appropriate design are provided with holes in the flanges at predetermined locations to correspond to the holes in the end portions of the beams and pillars. There are plugable holes (21) provided in the end portions of the beams and pillars so that workers can easily access inside the hollow space to use nuts (72), washers, and bolts (70) to couple the elongated hollow structures together. Instead of the C-shaped channel (20) structure two identical L-shaped channels (20b) may be used.

  • Patent number: 6829870
    Abstract: A building is erected using pre-cast wall panels, preferably load-bearing wall panels having a shear key on each vertical edge and starter bars on each horizontal edge, by first erecting the wall panels, and then casting a concrete column around the vertical edges of adjacent or intersecting wall panels using movable formwork made up from a set of standard modules that can be assembled to form different configurations and sizes of column for different panel arrangements. The moulding surfaces of the modules may be shaped to provide decorative features to the columns and/or the column/wall intersections.

  • Patent number: 6826194
    Abstract: Method and apparatus for connecting Internet or IP users to agents of a call center, which may be linked to an Internet web site. Visual information about quality of service, available agents, and history of previous connections, is transferred to the IP user via the IP network prior to voice call establishment, and a voice call is established according to inputs from the IP user which are responsive to the transferred information. An IP user who accesses a web site is identified and initiates a session with the serving call-center. Agent status information is stored at the call-center database. Information about the status and skills of each agent, which is stored at a database, is sent over the IP network and displayed on the screen of the IP user. A first selection menu is displayed on the screen and the IP user is requested to select between waiting for a preferred agent or sending voice or text messages. Available agents are displayed on the first menu, as well as their queuing time.

  • Patent number: 6802013
    Abstract: An integrated, modular computer program system provides for the encryption and decryption of files utilizing conventional encryption algorithms and a relational key generated by the system. The computer program system also generates a series of labels that are encrypted and appended as a trailer to the encrypted message. The encrypted labels provide a history behind the particular encryption and they can be individually selected, separated, and decrypted from the total file. A rule based expert system is utilized as an intelligent label selection system to minimize message sensitivity. An access control module permits a user with a preassigned passphrase to have access to the encryption or decryption portion of the program by comparing a generated vector or key with a partially decrypted version of a second vector or key stored on a portable storage medium such as a floppy disk.

  • Patent number: 6795023
    Abstract: Feeding structures for suspended plate antennas are disclosed hereinafter for enhancing the impedance bandwidth performance thereof. In any of these feeding structures, a multi-dimensional broadband impedance transformer is integrated with a suspended plate antenna. The impedance transformer electrically connects the radiating plate and feeding probe of the suspended plate antenna. As a result, the impedance bandwidth is increased. Moreover, the multi-dimensional design of the impedance transformer is variable to allow the flexible design and adjustment of the feeding structure.

  • Patent number: 6795497
    Abstract: A method of transmitting signals along a communication path, by a first compression/decompression unit, which method comprises receiving first signals from a first direction along the path, determining based on the received first signals whether a second decompression unit is located along the path in the first direction, receiving second signals from a second direction. In the case it is determined that a second decompression unit is located along the path in the first direction, selecting a compressed or decompressed format for transmission of the second signals responsive to at least one additional parameter, such that the determination that a second decompression unit is located along the path in the first direction does not always bring about selecting the compressed format. Then, the second signals are transmitted in the selected format.

  • Patent number: 6787456
    Abstract: Inter-connectors are typically used for interconnecting electronic components. Interconnections between electronic components are generally classified into at least two broad categories of “relatively permanent” and “readily demountable”. A “readily demountable” connector includes a spring-like contact structure of one electronic component for connecting to a terminal of another electronic component. The spring-like contact structure, also known as an inter-connector, generally requires a certain amount of contact force to effect reliable pressure contact to a terminal of an electronic component. Therefore, the shape and metallurgy of the inter-connector are important factors in determining the effectiveness of the inter-connector for making pressure connection to a terminal of the electronic component. Conventional methods of making such an inter-connector use lithographic and planarisation methods to “make” the inter-connectors in segments.
