  • Patent number: 10639544
    Abstract: An interactive computer game is described which works in conjunction with a number of physical modules that a user can connect together in different ways to form a coherent physical whole object. The game receives data from the object via a wireless link, the data identifying at least which modules form part of the object and updates game play based on the data received. At some point within the game play, the game presents an objective or goal to the user which the user can only achieve by interacting with the physical object formed from the modules. In an embodiment, this interaction comprises re-arranging the modules or swapping modules to form an object with a different visual appearance, moving all or part of the object and/or interacting with a sensor on a module in the object. The game may receive further data from the object during the user interaction.

  • Publication number: 20200131911
    Abstract: A turbine nozzle having an airfoil that includes a pressure side portion of a nominal airfoil profile substantially in accordance with Cartesian coordinate values of X, Y, and Z of a pressure side as set forth in Table I. The Cartesian coordinate values of X, Y, and Z are non-dimensional values from 0% to 100% convertible to dimensional distances by multiplying the Cartesian coordinate values of X, Y and Z by a height of the airfoil defined along the Z axis. The X and Y values of the pressure side are coordinate values that, when connected by smooth continuing arcs, define pressure side sections of the pressure side portion of the nominal airfoil profile at each Z coordinate value. The pressure side sections may be joined smoothly with one another to form the pressure side portion.

  • Patent number: 10635095
    Abstract: The example systems, methods, and devices disclosed herein generally relate to generating create a supervised failure model for assets in the given fleet that is configured to receive operating data as inputs and output a prediction as to the occurrence of a given failure type at the asset. In some instances, a data analytics platform may create and use an unsupervised failure model for a subset of the assets, use the respective unsupervised failure models to detect a set of anomalies that are each suggestive of a prior failure occurrence, from the set of anomalies, identify a subset of anomalies that are each suggest of a prior failure occurrence of the given failure type, and create the supervised failure model using failure data for the identified subset of anomalies.

  • Publication number: 20200094202
    Abstract: A static mixer includes a tubular body having a sidewall with an upstream end, a downstream end opposite the upstream end, and an inner surface. The upstream end has a surface defining an upstream opening into the body. The downstream end has a surface defining a downstream opening exiting the body. The upstream opening, the downstream opening, and inner surface define a passageway through the body for transport of a first fluid therethrough. A primary fin may depend from the inner surface of the body and into the passageway. The primary fin may have a curved fin with a flow surface. A secondary fin may extend into the passageway adjacent to the primary fin, the secondary fin may have a curved flow surface that curves opposite to the flow surface of the primary fin. The secondary fin may be offset upstream or downstream from the primary fin.

  • Patent number: 10597986
    Abstract: A technique facilitates hanging of a liner in a borehole. According to the technique, a liner hanger and a liner may be deployed downhole into a borehole. A wellbore anchoring device of the liner hanger is initially actuated to engage a surrounding surface and to resist downward movement of the liner. Additionally, a hold down anchor is subsequently actuated to resist upward movement of the liner. The hold down anchor may be released via mechanical manipulation of the liner hanger.
