  • Publication number: 20200306112
    Abstract: A self-propelled emergency stretcher includes an elongate frame having a set of wheels a track drive unit mounted thereto. The set of wheels includes first wheels at a front end of the frame and second wheels at a rear end of the frame, and the track drive unit is mounted between the first wheels and the second wheels. A plurality of actuators is configured to raise and lower the first wheels and the second wheels relative to the frame, so as to selectively switch the emergency stretcher between a self-propelled configuration and a manually-propelled configuration. In the self-propelled configuration the first wheels and the second wheels are out of contact with a ground surface below the emergency stretcher and the track drive unit is in contact with the ground surface. In the manually-propelled configuration the first wheels and the second wheels are in contact with the ground surface and the track drive unit is out of contact with the ground surface.

  • Publication number: 20200291755
    Abstract: Migration of formation solids in a wellbore is restrained by feeding a slurry, comprising water, a viscosifier, and a concentration of cement clinker particles, into the wellbore, and hydrating the clinker particles in the wellbore. The clinker particles are kept in suspension during the hydrating, and upon completion of the hydrating the hydrated clinker particles form a hardened cement consisting of a permeable structure of interconnected hydrated clinker particles. A layer of degradable lost circulation material (LCM) may be employed to separate the slurry with clinker particles from the formation surrounding the wellbore during hydrating of the clinker particles.

  • Publication number: 20200259154
    Abstract: A battery pack has bus bars at one end, freeing the other end of the battery pack for cooling or other arrangements. A plurality of battery cells oriented in the same manner in the battery pack has first terminals of the battery cells at first ends of the battery cells. Portions of second terminals of the battery cells are at the first ends of the battery cells. The first ends of the battery cells are in a coplanar arrangement.

  • Publication number: 20200170356
    Abstract: A male touch fastener product with a resin surface and an array of spaced-apart male touch fastener elements carried on the surface. Each touch fastener element has a stem extending from the surface and a head disposed at a distal end of the stem and extending laterally from the stem to a distal edge overhanging the surface. The head, stem and surface form a contiguous mass of resin, the head. The distal edge has multiple toes extending laterally outward and varying in shape and size about the edge, with adjacent toes having facing, free-form resin surfaces defining crevices therebetween. The fastener element is particularly flexible and engages with very fine fibers.

  • Patent number: 10429530
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses for processing marine seismic data with a process of combined deghosting and sparse ?-p transformation. The process is formulated as an optimization problem. The optimization problem has an objective function that is a weighted sum of two norms: one norm is an Lp norm of the differences between the modeled data and acquired survey wherein the modeled data are derived from a model and a set of adaptive filters; the other norm is an Lq norm of the model; and the optimization variables and solutions are the coefficients of the model and coefficients of the adaptive filters.

  • Patent number: 10409507
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes methods and apparatuses for implementing virtual dynamic library loading in embedded systems. In some aspects, a determination is made that a feature is not available in firmware executed from a first memory. Based on information associated with the feature, a portion of a second memory is allocated for code of the feature. In some cases, the portion of the second memory is allocated from a data buffer or part of a shared memory. The code of the feature is loaded to the allocated portion of the second memory and address aliasing logic is configured enable execution of the feature from the second memory. By allocating and executing firmware features from the second memory, a size of the firmware executed from the first memory can be reduced to conserve memory space and other firmware features may be dynamically loaded and executed from the second memory.

  • Patent number: 9490465
    Abstract: A battery pack with a compact and robust bus bar assembly is provided. The batteries within the pack are divided into groups, where the batteries within each battery group are connected in parallel and the groups are connected in series. A repetitive sequence of overlapping bus bars is used, with each bus bar comprised of upper and lower segments coupled together via a step segment. The overlapping design allows the upper surface of the upper segment of each of the repetitive bus bars to be aligned within an upper plane, and the lower surface of the lower segment of each of the repetitive bus bars to be aligned within a lower plane.
