  • Publication number: 20210047964
    Abstract: A turboprop gas turbine engine mountable to an aircraft has an engine core and a gearbox driving a propeller, the engine core and the gearbox being enclosed within a nacelle. The propeller is located rearward of the gearbox and the engine core relative to a direction of travel of the aircraft. An air intake is disposed within the nacelle and formed to direct ambient air into the engine core. The air intake includes an air inlet duct, having a forward-facing intake inlet receiving the ambient air, with an upstream section and a downstream section. The upstream section is in fluid communication with the intake inlet and extends downstream from the intake inlet. The downstream section fluidly connects to and directs air from the upstream section into the engine air inlet. A second air outlet duct is located within the nacelle and directs air into an air-cooled-oil-cooler (ACOC).

  • Publication number: 20200406205
    Abstract: A dispensing device, comprising a plurality of microfluidic pumps, microfluidic valves, and a microfluidic mixer chip, for receiving and mixing microfluidic amounts of a plurality of fluids having differing viscosities, is disclosed. The device includes a plurality of pathways for moving fluids from associated reservoirs to the microfluidic mixer chip. A mix controller controls the microfluidic pumps and valves so that the fluids, having different viscosities, can be accurately mixed at specified microfluidic amounts or volumes according to a specified microfluidic recipe, and the microfluidic mixture dispensed from the device. The device can be in communication with a software application implemented on a mobile compute device, such as a smartphone, and receive instructions for implementing the specified microfluidic recipe from the software application such that the operation of device components is at the direction of the software application executed on the mobile compute device.

  • Patent number: 10839021
    Abstract: A journal of operations persistently stores a collection of user and machine interactions with documents, concepts within documents, and relationships/mentions among such documents and concepts. A knowledge graph or other visual expression can be used to provide an interactive format for user interactions with this information, and to visually display the accumulated information in the journal of operations on user's device of choice. Such accumulations are often called aggregations or aggregates. Both human users and computer users such as automated recommendation engines, machine learning algorithms, and the like can interact with the journal of operations to facilitate computer-assisted discovery and organization of data around a topic of interest to the human user. The resulting journal of operations and aggregations of those operations such as a knowledge graph or other visual expression(s) also provides a useful medium for sharing knowledge with other users and collaborating on investigation of a topic.

  • Patent number: 10809882
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems and methods for inserting or injecting additional object identifiers into a currently presented feed or presentation of object identifiers. For example, a user of a portable device may view a feed or set of object identifiers, such as images of objects, that is presented on the display of the portable device. As the user views the object identifiers, the user may interact with one or more of those object identifiers by selecting an interaction control associated with the object identifier to indicate an interest in the object identifier. In response to the interaction, rather than presenting a new set of object identifiers, the described implementations insert or inject additional object identifiers into the current feed or set of object identifiers so that the user can continue to view the current object identifiers as well as the additional object identifiers.
