  • Patent number: 10345611
    Abstract: An illumination system including at least one light source such as an electroluminescent element, e.g. a light emitting diode (LED), and at least one optical element whose surface is structured by diffraction and/or refraction type optical microstructures. In order to shape the beam, the optical element includes at least two sections whose optical microstructures and therefore optical properties are different from one another. The pattern of the microstructures in each of the at least two sections is, at least over a predetermined angular range, rotationally symmetric with respect to the optical axis or another symmetry axis.

  • Patent number: 10246978
    Abstract: A well stimulation modeling method and simulation model for modeling a stimulation treatment involving a chemical reaction between a treatment fluid and a porous medium, such as acid treatment of a carbonate formation. In a wormhole initiation stage or mode, the medium of the cells having a solid saturation above a respective critical solid saturation is comprised of matrix material behaving as a single permeability, single porosity system; and in a wormhole growth stage or mode, the cells having a solid saturation equal to or less than the respective critical sold saturation comprise two different interconnected media, the matrix material and a wormhole material, defined to include wormhole-forming material as well as mature wormholes, having fluid mobility as a function of the solid saturation.

  • Patent number: 9916726
    Abstract: A gaming system includes a credit mechanism configured to receive credit input by a player for contribution to a credit balance and a display configured to display a plurality of standard symbol positions and optionally one or more additional symbol positions. The system also includes a betting module configured to determine a bet amount and game play instructions on commencement of a game input using a player interface, the bet subtracted from the credit balance. A symbol selector selects symbols for display in the plurality of standard symbol positions and, dependent on the amount wagered, further arranged to select and display symbols in the additional symbol position(s) to increase the probability of a win outcome being generated. An outcome determiner determines an outcome of the game based on the displayed symbol positions.

  • Patent number: 8523661
    Abstract: A method of awarding an award on a gaming machine is set forth. The method includes selecting an eligibility criterion or eligibility criteria from a plurality of possible eligibility criteria. The selected criterion is deemed to be an active award trigger event. Game play activity on the gaming machine is then monitored for occurrence of this trigger event. When the active award trigger event occurs, the award is awarded. Following award of the award, or following the occurrence of another event, the selected eligibility criterion are rendered inactive award trigger event, and another eligibility criterion is selected as the active award trigger event.
