  • Patent number: 10774664
    Abstract: A gas turbine having an annular flowpath defined between concentric inner radial and outer radial boundaries. A plenum is positioned just outboard of the outer radial boundary that wraps circumferentially in spaced relation thereto. The height of the plenum is defined radially between a floor and ceiling. The plenum includes an inlet formed through the ceiling at a first end and spaced outlet ports formed through the floor. The plenum includes a divider baffle that spans the width of the plenum and extends between the first end and the second end of the plenum so to divide the plenum into radially stacked first and second compartments. The first compartment connects directly to the inlet, while the second compartment connects directly to the outlet ports. The height of the first compartment tapers between a greater height at the first end and a lesser height at the second end of the plenum.

  • Publication number: 20200278306
    Abstract: A system for non-destructive testing of an overhead energized electrical component. The system has a base, an X-ray source, an X-ray digital imager, and an imager controller. The system also has a removable electrically conductive flexible shield which is adapted to be operatively coupled to, and to encapsulate, at least the base, the X-ray source, the X-ray digital imager and the imager controller so as to form a shrouded system. In a use position, when the shrouded system is positioned adjacent the energized electrical component so as to non-destructively test the energized electrical component, the shield protects at least the base, the X-ray source, the X-ray digital imager and the imager controller from electric fields around the energized electrical component while allowing signal communication between at least the X-ray source and the energized electrical component.

  • Patent number: 10717267
    Abstract: In a method of printing a transferable component, a stamp including an elastomeric post having three-dimensional relief features protruding from a surface thereof is pressed against a component on a donor substrate with a first pressure that is sufficient to mechanically deform the relief features and a region of the post between the relief features to contact the component over a first contact area. The stamp is retracted from the donor substrate such that the component is adhered to the stamp. The stamp including the component adhered thereto is pressed against a receiving substrate with a second pressure that is less than the first pressure to contact the component over a second contact area that is smaller than the first contact area. The stamp is then retracted from the receiving substrate to delaminate the component from the stamp and print the component onto the receiving substrate. Related apparatus and stamps are also discussed.
