  • Patent number: 10502669
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to a real-time video extensometer. Typically, the apparatus of the disclosure combines the image source, data processing and electrical output on to a single processing board in order to achieve high frequency images and low latency times on data flow. Further, the video processing engine processes the image on a pixel basis and updating the output the intermediate extension/strain result so that after receipt of the final image pixel, a final extension/strain value is achieved and immediately output for evaluation.

  • Publication number: 20190256318
    Abstract: A series of elastic break brakes are provided throughout a travel path of elastics in a machine operation. Elastic strands thread through each individual brake mechanism, and if an elastic strand breaks downstream, a natural snap back of the elastic, which ordinarily travels through the system under tension, drives an immediately upstream cam mechanism back, and holds the elastic thread in place at the elastic break brake immediately upstream of the break as to minimize rethreading required downstream of the elastic break brake.

  • Publication number: 20190172132
    Abstract: Computer implemented electronic trading systems and methods for spotting and hedging a plurality of electronic trades in order for multiple parties to execute and hedge the electronic trades at prices controlled by a common spot. The trading systems include one or more computer systems capable of, and the methods include steps for, collecting and analyzing a plurality of spot-designated electronic trades of a financial product that is traded with respect to a reference price of a reference financial product. The systems and methods determine a common spot for multiple electronic trades including one or more electronic trades of the financial product and one or more associated electronic trades of the reference financial product, and distribute instructions for the multiple electronic trades to be executed at prices controlled by the common spot. Some such trading systems, and related methods, are capable of determining multiple common spots for different electronic trades.

  • Patent number: 10289321
    Abstract: Spatially coupled journals include information for every portion of physical media, including defective, or “bad”, blocks. Because data cannot be stored to bad blocks, a bad block table is needed before a solid state drive (SSD) can be accessed. Using the information already stored in the journals, the bad block table can be rebuilt following a loss of power. To ensure the journals can be located, a small seed can be stored in off band storage. The seed can include information pointing to a boot catalog stored on the SSD. The boot catalog can be used to determine the locations of journals, which may vary from their predetermined locations depending on the bad blocks of the drive. By storing a small seed, rather than an entire bad block table, the size of external storage needed to maintain the bad block table is reduced.

  • Patent number: 10254277
    Abstract: A method of analyzing a skin-print provided on a first surface of an optically transparent substrate. The method comprises the steps of exposing the skin-print on the first surface of the optically transparent substrate to one or more reagents selected to bind with one or more metabolites present in the skin-print; transmitting electromagnetic radiation onto the skin-print through the optically transparent substrate using a radiation source to thereby produce an optical signal of said one or more reagents and/or said one or more metabolites; and detecting an optical image of the optical signal through the optically transparent substrate using a sensor. Also a skin-print analysis apparatus and a reagent cartridge for use in carrying out the method.

  • Publication number: 20190069523
    Abstract: A leash for an animal is provided that includes a collar end and a handle end positioned opposite the collar end. An intermediate portion of the leash is located between the collar end and the handle end of the leash. The intermediate portion includes two separate strands wherein a first end of each strand is attached at the collar end of the leash and a second end of each strand is attached at the handle end of the leash. The leash is configured to encircle the abdomen of the animal by passing the handle end of the leash through a loop formed between the two separate strands such that the leash forms a constrictive loop around the animal's midsection or abdomen, specifically the portion of the animal's torso located between animal's hind legs and the animal's ribs. Methods for using the leash are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20190060132
    Abstract: A system and method for producing a disposable undergarment, with the lateral edges of the undergarment bonded by means of an ultrasonic horn. When a blank is formed for an individual undergarment, the lateral edges of opposing edges of the blank will form the seam. When the edges are sealed together, a seam is formed. The individual undergarments may be later separated along the seams.

  • Publication number: 20180296398
    Abstract: A pulpless core is provided with flexibility for superabsorbent expansion by using elastic strands stretched and coupled to a nonwoven layer, and then relaxed partially to create receiving valleys (puckers) and the puckers are provided with superabsorbent polymer, and then a layer of nonwoven or acquisition film can be coupled on top of nonwoven/elastic/sap carrier layers to create an absorbent core laminate. A tubular core can be created and placed into a product with or without additional absorbent material between adjacent tubular members. A printed back sheet corresponding to either the tubular core shape, or void spaces between tubular members can be provide. A forming drum pocket can be profiled to match tube or tube shaped zones and elastic placements between adjacent tubes, if desired.

  • Publication number: 20180264305
    Abstract: A cycling resistance apparatus includes an adjustment mechanism configured to be attached to a frame, such as a stationary frame or the frame of a bicycle, and a magnet assembly attached to the adjustment mechanism. The adjustment mechanism is configured to position magnets of the magnet assembly at an active position so that a face of each magnet is positioned within a diameter of a bicycle tire and within a width of the bicycle tire, so as to be adjacent an electrically conductive rim of the bicycle wheel. When in the active position, the one or more magnets of the magnet assembly induce eddy currents in the electrically conductive rim of the wheel to provide resistance against rotation of the wheel in the frame.

  • Publication number: 20180161748
    Abstract: The fluid-segmentation device according to an embodiment of the present invention includes: a first conduit in which a first fluid flows, and a second conduit in which a second fluid immiscible with the first fluid flows. The second conduit of the fluid-segmentation device includes an intersection region, to which the first conduit is connected and into which the first fluid is introduced, and a first region downstream of the intersection region. The cross-sectional area of the intersection region of the second conduit in a plane perpendicular to the flow direction of the second fluid is less than the cross-sectional area of the first region of the second conduit in a plane perpendicular to the flow direction of the second fluid.
