  • Publication number: 20060286534
    Abstract: A system for computer-based training (“CBT”) includes a content editing portal, operable on a computer system, for generating content using a markup language, the portal providing a graphical user interface (“GUI”) to give a user access to the markup language date in a structured form-based editing environment. The portal supports: making changes to the content; creating an index of the content; associating a procedure with a page of content; adding audio to the content; and adding titles to the content. An acronyms module supports the creation of a list of acronyms; and a testing module which supports the creation of tests. Content is stored using templates, and the GUI supports reassigning the content from a first template to a second template by selection of a template tab corresponding to the second template. A presentation mechanism presents a lesson to a user, the lesson having been stored using structural templates including at least one lesson template and at least one testing template.

The tubing also includes a second layer connected to or bonded to the first layer and consists essentially of an extrudable, melt-processible thermoplastic capable of laminar adhesion with the first layer. At least one of the first and second layers can be resistant to permeation by hydrocarbons. The tubing includes a third layer connected to or bonded to the second layer and containing an extrudable, melt-processible thermoplastic.

  • Patent number: 6327771
    Abstract: A reduced resistance bead seal is integrally formed on a mounting surface of two matingly engageable members to form a leak-free seal between the two members despite any eccentricity or angular variances between the two members. In one embodiment, the reduced resistance bead is formed on an inner conical flange of an inverted flared end of a hollow fluid conduit. The bead presents a deformable surface as a fitting urges the flared end of the conduit into engagement with a conical seat in a receiver where eccentricity or angular variances exist between the flared end of the conduit and the conical seat. A unique method and a unique forming tool are used to form the reduced resistance bead in the flared end of the conduit simultaneously with the flaring of the end of the conduit.

  • Patent number: 6146229
    Abstract: A photocathode device for use in an image intensifier, fabricated with a photoemissive semiconductor wafer having an active cathode layer which includes a central region of a first predetermined height surrounded by a peripheral region of a second predetermined height. The first predetermined height of the central region is configured to be greater than the second predetermined height of the peripheral region in order to create a recessed contact structure which is less likely to have unwanted emission points. A layer of conductive material covers the peripheral region to provide an electrical contact to the photocathode device. A layer of insulating material covers the layer of conductive material in order to protect the contact layer from being damage during handling operations.

  • Patent number: 6112767
    Abstract: A unitarily formed diverter valve assembly for use in liquid chromatography. The valve assembly comprises a plurality of inlet and outlet ports, diverter valve systems, chambers, and a tortuous network of passageways all of which are arranged to accommodate the flow of fluids in a liquid chromatography system. The valve assembly is configured so as to direct the flow of fluid coming from an inlet port through the valve body where it can then be reversibly directed into or out of a chromatography column. On returning from the column, the fluid reenters the valve assembly where it is directed to an outlet port in order to exit the system. The valve assembly can also be configured so as to bypass the column altogether. Since the entire valve assembly is machined out of a single block of material having smooth liquid passageways, and since all flow compartments are shared and fully flushed when a flow-through valve is opened, dead-legs are virtually eliminated from the system.
