  • Patent number: 10095817
    Abstract: A method, system, apparatus, article of manufacture, and computer readable storage medium provide the ability to automatically simulate a wind load. An analytical model is converted into a solid model. A wind flow on the solid model is simulated to determine pressures on structural elements of the solid model. The simulating is repeated until the pressures converge. The pressures are converted to loads on the structural elements. Load cases are generated with equivalent loads on the structural elements.

  • Patent number: 10089415
    Abstract: A system and method of determining 3D coordinates of an object is provided. The method includes determining a first set of 3D coordinates for a plurality of points on the object with a structured light scanner. An inspection plan is determined for the object, which includes features to be inspected with a remote probe. The points are mapped onto a CAD model. The features are identified on the plurality of points mapped onto a CAD model. A visible light is projected with the scanner proximate a first feature of the features. A sensor is contacted on the remote probe to at least one first point on the first feature on the object. A first position and orientation of the remote probe are determined with the scanner. A second set of 3D coordinates of the at least one first point are determined on the first feature on the object.

  • Patent number: 10067862
    Abstract: Asynchronous operations associated with a request such as synchronous threads, runnable elements, callable elements, and other invokable objects are tracked to determine the metrics about the request and operations. The present technology tracks the start and end of each asynchronous operation and maintains a counter which tracks the currently executing asynchronous operations. By monitoring the request, the start and end of each asynchronous operation associated with the request, and the number of asynchronous operations currently executing, the present technology may identify the end of a request by identifying when the last asynchronous operation associated with the request ends. In some instances, the present technology identifies the end of a request when a counter which tracks the number of asynchronous operations executing reaches a value of zero after the first asynchronous operation has already begun.

  • Patent number: 10062128
    Abstract: Various embodiments relate generally to a system, a device and a method provide for accessing data across multiple disparate systems via a graph data structure. A request associated with a data object in a listing management system may be received. An identifier associated with the data object may then be determined. One or more nodes in a knowledge graph may then be traversed responsive to the identifier and the request associated with the data object. Data items are retrieved from the one or more nodes in the knowledge graph based on the request. Responsive to the received request, a proxy object comprising the retrieved one or more data items is then provided.

  • Patent number: 10061601
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method receives configuration information for a set of components of an extensible application. A component in the set of components includes extending information if the component is an extension of another component and hosting information if the component is hosting a set of extension points. A computing device dynamically generates an extension structure at runtime of the application from the configuration information. The extension structure is generated by connecting components together based on the extending information and the hosting information of the set of components. A navigation request to a target component is received and a path of components to the target component is determined using the extension structure. The path of components is traversed until the target component is loaded and the target component is displayed.

  • Patent number: 10062009
    Abstract: Data from one or more sensors is input to a workflow and fragmented to produce HyperFragments. The HyperFragments of input data are processed by a plurality of Distributed Experts, who make decisions about what is included in the HyperFragments or add details relating to elements included therein, producing tagged HyperFragments, which are maintained as tuples in a Semantic Database. Algorithms are applied to process the HyperFragments to create an event definition corresponding to a specific activity. Based on related activity included in historical data and on ground truth data, the event definition is refined to produce a more accurate event definition. The resulting refined event definition can then be used with the current input data to more accurately detect when the specific activity is being carried out.

  • Patent number: 10037393
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method creating a benchmark for consumer satisfaction of website or web application performance includes aggregating real user measurement (RUM) data captured from devices of users during sessions on a website or web application, the RUM data including a landing page load time of each user and whether a bounce occurred. The probability that each tenant will bounce is then modeled. Next, an ordered discrete set of lethal dose (LD) values is calculated and the tenants are then filtered for erroneousness. An ordered set of mean LD values is calculated, and that set is reduced to exactly 10m ordered mean LD values. The 10mn ordered mean LD values are mapped to a corresponding number of ordered CPI scores ranging from 0 to 100, wherein the mapping results in the benchmark.

  • Patent number: 10019543
    Abstract: A method of creating a CAD model from a finite element model includes identifying and characterizing features of interest from the finite element model. Multiple intermediate data structures of the finite element model are created by dividing the input mesh of the finite element model into mesh regions. Feature recognition is performed on each intermediate data structure to identify finite element model features. Features and feature properties are extracted from the finite element model, and a CAD model is created using the extracted features and feature properties.

  • Patent number: 10013514
    Abstract: A granular material is a simulation target, wherein a force acting on each grain is expressed by a potential dependent term and an energy dissipation term. The potential dependent term depends on an interaction potential ? between the grains. Physical quantities included in the potential dependent term are renormalization-transformed so that a hamiltonian form expressed by a kinetic energy of the each grain and a potential energy based on the interaction potential ? does not change. Physical quantities included in the dissipation term are renormalization-transformed so that a change rate of the potential dependent term and a change rate of the dissipation term become equal. Temporal development of a renormalized granular material is calculated by performing numerical integration with respect to a motion equation of each grain of the renormalized granular material.
