  • Patent number: 5355313
    Abstract: A method for determining depth to basement from aeromagnetic data utilizes neural networks to automate the laborious process of profile interpretation. The neural networks provide consistency, accuracy and overall quality without bias of interpretation.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: October 25, 1991
    Date of Patent: October 11, 1994
    Assignee: Texaco Inc.

  • Patent number: 4553932
    Abstract: A pistol grip has twin abutments projecting in parallel relationship and spaced apart to straddle an orthodontic bracket attached to a tooth and to engage the tooth at opposite sides of the bracket. A swing handle pivoted to the pistol grip carries a pull wire extending between the abutments such pull wire has a loop for hooking a wing of the orthodontic bracket. The handle can be pulled toward the pistol grip to draw the pull wire toward the pistol grip for pressing the abutments against the tooth and simultaneously pulling the bracket off the tooth. During such pulling, constriction of the arch wire slot in the bracket is prevented by fitting in such slot a spacer hook of a tenaculum.

  • Patent number: 4340057
    Abstract: An absorbent material is prepared by treating a substrate with an aqueous monomer dispersion of an acrylate salt and a cross-linking monomer and thereafter irradiating the treated substrate with high energy ionizing radiation to form a cage matrix of the polymer and monomer substrate. The absorbent material can be swelled with a solution containing a volatile additive to dispense said additive over a period of time.
