  • Patent number: 8868373
    Abstract: Disclosed are virtual reality systems, in particular immersive virtual reality systems, their parts, construction and use. The systems and/or parts thereof may be used by adults or children, and may be adapted to support, often within a single device, a large range of users of different sizes and medical condition. Users with physical disabilities have difficulties using existing immersive technologies such as those using accessories like head-mounted displays and data gloves. Such users are provided with immersive virtual reality outputs that allow them to see virtual representations of their body parts which appear in a correct spatial position relative to the users' viewpoint.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 6592326
    Abstract: In a guide vane element for a gas turbine with a vane blade extending between a platform that is located radially inward in relation to the main housing of the gas turbine and a radially outward platform, a flange is provided on at least one edge of the platforms adjoining an adjacent second guide vane element in the circumferential direction and on the side of the platform facing away from the vane blade. The second guide vane element can be attached, via a second flange provided on a second platform on the second guide vane element. The connection of the platforms forms a cover band, or a connection between the guide vane elements that is tight, flush, and stress-free at different temperatures.

  • Patent number: 6361273
    Abstract: A heat shield for a gas turbine, which heat shield encloses in particular the rotating blades of a stage of the gag turbine in an annular manner, consists of a plurality of heat-shield segments (13), which are arranged one behind the other in the circumferential direction, are curved in a circular-segment shape and are cooled from outside, and the longitudinal sides of which are designed as correspondingly curved rails running in the circumferential direction and possibly provided with recesses and having in each case a first arm (18) projecting in the axial direction, and which, for fastening to the casing of the gas turbine, are mounted with the first arms (18) in each case in an annular intermediate space (20) of constant width.
