  • Publication number: 20180045804
    Abstract: Methods and systems disclosed herein may include receiving signals from a transmitter in a receiver; determine a bias of the transmitter and receiver; generating expected observations, based on the bias, corresponding to the received signals; and calculate a building height based on a power level of the received signals and a power level of the expected observations.
    Type: Application

  • Patent number: 9651647
    Abstract: Methods and systems disclosed herein may include receiving signals along a traveled path over a period of time; recording signal power levels of the received signals over the period of time; receiving a first estimated track of the traveled path; identifying a feature of the received signal power levels, wherein the feature is caused by the signals having traveled different propagation paths; and generating a second estimated track based on the feature and the first estimated track.

  • Patent number: 4719971
    Abstract: A wellhead system having a casing hanger (C) with a first sealing surface (20) within a wellhead (W) with a second sealing surface (16) spaced from said first sealing surface (20) forming annulus (14) in combination with a pack-off assembly (P) including a wedge ring (42), which in this embodiment, supports a pack-off (64) which has a first metal-to-metal seal (S-1) which sealingly engages the first sealing surface (20) upon initial movement of the pack-off (64) into the annulus (14) and a second metal-to-metal seal (S-1) which sealingly engages the second sealing surface (16) upon further movement of the wedge ring (42) urging said second pack-off seal (S-2) radially outwardly towards the first sealing surface (20). Each metal-to-metal seal may be provided with elastomeric sealing means. Two types of metal-to-metal seals (S-1, S-2) and two types of lock down means, wicker ring (40) and split ring (10), are disclosed.

  • Patent number: 4611953
    Abstract: A bottom anchor connector for securing the tension legs of a tension leg platform (10) having a flexible joint (26) between a first body member (22) and a second body member (24) including a latch carrier (44) having latch segments (46) thereon which react with an anchor receptacle recess (18) to provide the connection between the connector (10) and the anchor receptacle (R) when the bottom connector (10) is lowered into the anchor receptacle (R). The latch carrier forms part of a self-actuating installation and release mechanism and includes, in one embodiment, keys (46) which cooperate with the receptacle recess (18) to position the dogheads (50) of the latch segments (46) to be free of the receptacle recess (18) so that the dogheads may move within the inner wall of the receptacle without reacting to the recess (18) to release the bottom connector from the receptacle.
