  • Patent number: 10650173
    Abstract: A design support apparatus supporting designing of a product which uses a fiber material includes a processor that creates a predicted shape model by predicting a shape of the product before a deformation processing. The processor: creates a 3-dimensional shape model of the product; creates curved shape models by separating the 3-dimensional shape model into two or more fiber layers; sets a correspondence relationship between the curved shape models; creates an orientation vector field in the curved shape models; and predicts the shape of the product before the deformation processing by developing the curved shape models on a flat surface based on the correspondence relationship between the curved shape models and the orientation vector field in the curved shape models, and creates the predicted shape model based on the predicted shape.

  • Publication number: 20200055868
    Abstract: The problem to be solved by the present invention is to provide a compound suitable for a pharmaceutical composition, specifically a pharmaceutically composition for treating nocturia. The inventors have assumed that inhibition of nocturnal activity of placental leucine aminopeptidase (P-LAP), i.e. aminopeptidase that cleaves AVP, would maintain and/or increase an endogenous AVP level to enhance the antidiuretic effect, which would contribute to a decreased number of nocturnal voids, and have extensively studied compounds which inhibit P-LAP. As a result, the inventors have found that (2R)-3-amino-2-{[4-(substituted pyridine)-2-yl]methyl}-2-hydroxy-propanoic acid derivatives have excellent P-LAP inhibitory activity. The inventors have evaluated antidiuretic effects in water-loaded rats and have found that the compounds increase endogenous AVP levels by inhibiting P-LAP and consequently reduce urine production.

In general, the oil mist suppressant will not inhibit the purpose and effects of the oil treatment. An oil containing the same, and a method of reducing oil mist using the same, are also provided. The oil mist suppressant is constituted by a silicone fluid composition. The silicone fluid composition is homogeneously miscible with a dimethylpolysiloxane oil having a kinematic viscosity of 10.0 mm2/s at 25° C. The silicone fluid composition also has the property of increasing the maximum lamellar length of the dimethylpolysiloxane oil by at least 5% when 1.0% by mass of the silicone fluid composition is added thereto.
