  • Patent number: 11168378
    Abstract: A hot-pressed member is formed using a tailored blank material obtained by butt joining respective ends of two or more coated steel sheets. The hot-pressed member has two or more sites formed by the respective coated steel sheets and at least one joining portion between the sites. Depending on a type of a coated layer of each of the coated steel sheets, tw/t0 is appropriately controlled where tw is a thickness of a thinnest portion in the joining portion and t0 is a thickness of a thinnest site of the sites. A tensile strength of each of the sites is 1180 MPa or more.

  • Patent number: 10438630
    Abstract: A display control apparatus capable of performing time-line display of a moving image including a section recorded at a different recording speed from the real-time recording speed, at time intervals designated by a user. Frames are extracted from a moving image at time intervals set by a user to display the extracted frames in a line. When a moving image includes a first section recorded at a recording frame rate which is the same as a reproduction frame rate, and a second section recorded at a frame rate different from the reproduction frame rate, frames are extracted from the first section at a first frame interval, and from the second section at a second frame interval different from the first frame interval. The frames extracted from the first section and the second section, respectively, are displayed in a line.
