  • Patent number: 10934939
    Abstract: A gas turbine engine including core engine is provided. Air may enter the core engine through an inlet and travel through and engine air flowpath extending through the core engine, e.g., generally along an axial direction of the gas turbine engine. The gas turbine engine additionally includes a cooling air flowpath extending outwardly generally along the radial direction of the gas turbine engine. The cooling air flowpath extends between an inlet in flow communication with engine air flowpath and an outlet defined by an opening in an outer casing of the core engine. Moreover, the gas turbine engine includes a heat exchanger positioned at least partially within the outer casing the core engine with the cooling air flowpath extending over or through the heat exchanger.

  • Patent number: 10067260
    Abstract: Techniques, systems and apparatus are described for operating a multimode passive detection system (MMPDS). System control settings including operating parameters for the multimode passive detection system are stored. Detector signals are processed to reconstruct an image of a scanned volume and identify an object in the scanned volume based on the reconstructed image. The operating parameters and the detector signals at different processing stages are recorded. An operational health of the multimode passive detection system is monitored. Monitoring the operational health includes receiving information representing the operational health of various components of the multimode passive detection system, and determining an operational health status of one or more of the various components of the multimode passive detection system based on the received information representing the operational health of the multimode passive detection system.

  • Publication number: 20060107032
    Abstract: New code routines for a secure system (e.g., a TPM) are stored in a memory (e.g., a flash memory) that is located external to the secure system. For example, a chip may include a TPM and an external flash memory may be connected to the chip. New routines for the TPM may then be stored in the flash. A function table may be used to determine whether a given function to be executed by the TPM is stored in on-chip memory (e.g., ROM) or in the flash. New function tables may be stored in the flash. For example, when a new set of functions is loaded into the flash, a new function table that references the new functions also may be loaded into the flash.

  • Patent number: 6854487
    Abstract: A fluid conduit wall enclosing a hollow interior for the flow of fluid includes an outer surface provided with a low emissivity coating having a coating emissivity of less than 0.2 and a thickness at least sufficient to provide the coating emissivity. One embodiment provides a fluid conduit with multiple spaced-apart walls. An outer surface of an inner wall of a first member and an inner surface of an outer wall of a second member define a gap therebetween. At least one of such surfaces includes the low emissivity coating. A method for providing such coating deposits the coating, for example by reactive vaporization, concurrently on both surfaces from within the gap after assembly of the members.

  • Patent number: 5399066
    Abstract: Clearance control is provided by a shaped, integral environmental shield and circumferentially segmented cooling manifold. Each manifold has impingement rails located radially outside selected components of the stator casing. Cooling air is directed onto stator components and returns immediately through circuitous paths to improve uniformity of cooling. The structure incorporates the environmental shield into a two piece bonded structure to facilitate construction and assembly.

  • Patent number: 5281085
    Abstract: Improved operation can be achieved from an enhanced gas turbine engine having a segmented annular shroud which radially expands and contracts to match the expansion and contraction of engine rotor blades. The segmented annular shroud is supported by a structure which includes an annular ring having two radially outwardly extending flanges, and forward and aft annular segmented brackets which attach the segmented shroud to the forward and aft side of the ring respectively. In a preferred embodiment of the invention, two circumferentially extending separate and distinct air impingement manifolds surrounds each of the outwardly extending flanges. Each manifold is provided with a valve for controlling the amount and temperature of the airflow entering each manifold. The air from each manifold then impinges upon each of the outwardly extending flanges, thereby controlling the radial movement of the corresponding shroud segments and the associated clearances with the rotor blade tips.

  • Patent number: 5263312
    Abstract: A tube fitting for use with a flammable fluid is disposed in an auto-ignition zone of a gas turbine engine. The tube fitting has a pair of separable casings defining a passage to accommodate flow therethrough of the flammable fluid, and the casings have a pair of seals associated in sealing engagement with each other to seal about the passage. A restriction is arranged in one of the casings for limiting at least to a preselected flow rate any leakage flow of the flammable fluid from the passage past the seals upon an interruption in the sealing engagement thereof in the event of the occurrence of the separation of the casing.

  • Patent number: 5212940
    Abstract: In a gas turbine engine, conduit delivers pressurized cooling air to a selected group of hollow struts at a temperature sufficient to induce thermal contraction of the selected group of hollow struts, thereby opposing a downward shift in the rotor axis during high power engine operation, and maintaining a circumferentially uniform tip clearance. Air baffles disposed in the cooled struts ensure radially uniform thermal contraction and efficient heat transfer.

  • Patent number: 5197766
    Abstract: A flammable fluid-carrying tube coupling assembly for use in a gas turbine engine includes a pair of fitting members each having an inner hub portion and an outer flange portion, a seal and drain arrangement defined within an annular interface region between the fitting members, and an arrangement for releasably clamping the fitting members to one another. The inner hub portions are attachable to ends of fluid-carrying hollow tubes and disposed relative to one another so as to define a flow passage for fluid communication between the hollow tubes. The outer flange portions are attached to and extend radially outwardly from the inner hub portions and are disposed relative to one another so as to define the annular interface region between the fitting members which provides a path of potential fluid leakage from the flow passage to the exterior of the fitting members.
