  • Publication number: 20200394348
    Abstract: A method for assessing fatigue damage and a fatigue life based on a crystal plastic welding process model. According to the new method, consideration is given to the effects of the crystal slip system and the polycrystal plastic strain on the welding process performance of the material. A welding process damage and fatigue life assessment model is established on the mesoscopic scale. The effect of microscopic characterizations of materials on the welding process performance, as well as on the fatigue damage and life of welded joints, can be studied from the mesoscopic point of view. The relationship between the welding process and the evolution of the material performance can be determined by the macro-mesoscopic coupling calculation model to further determine the effect and degree of welding processes on the fatigue damage and life of materials.

  • Publication number: 20200394347
    Abstract: A method for assessing fatigue damage and fatigue life based on Abaqus is provided. The micro-macroscopic scale coupled model is based on the macroscopic representative area and the microstructure characterization of the material, and the microscopic sub-model is established by the Voronoi algorithm. The algorithm has good cross-platform compatibility and portability, fundamentally solves the technical problem of micro-macroscopic multi-scale coupling and establishes and applies the multi-scale coupled model to the fatigue damage and life assessment. The micro-macroscopic multi-scale coupled fatigue damage and life assessment model and algorithm of the material is capable of both considering the fatigue damage evolution on a microscopic scale and assessing the fatigue life, as well as calculating and assessing the two physical parameters on a macroscopic scale, so as to predict the fatigue damage and life of the whole workpiece.

  • Patent number: 8621342
    Abstract: A system and method can provide a re-parsing mechanism that is plugged into a delegation layer that is transparent to the XML applications. The re-parsing mechanism can perform one or more XML parsing operations based on a local document type definition or schema file. If an error is detected during one or more XML parsing operations based on the local document type definition or schema file, the re-parsing mechanism allows for retrieving an updated document type definition or schema file from a remote application server and performing the one or more XML parsing operations again based on the updated document type definition or schema file.

  • Publication number: 20120088247
    Abstract: A pathway for the metabolism of tamoxifen is identified including the activity of at least 2 different isoforms of UGY2B7. This pathway includes isozymes of CYP3A which convert tamoxifen (TAM) to N-desmethyl-TAM, which is then converted to endoxifen by the action of CYP2D6. Once formed, endoxifen may be degraded by at least one isozyme of UGT2B7. Patients that have highly active isoforms of CYP2D6 and slow acting isoforms of UGT2B7 accumulate high levels of endoxifen and are good candidates for treatment with tamoxifen. Also disclosed are methods for screening patients with a high likelihood of benefiting from treatment with tamoxifen. These methods include testing patients for various alleles of genes known to be involved in tamoxifen metabolism and treating patients accordingly.

  • Publication number: 20110269636
    Abstract: Aspects of the invention include methods for identifying patients with HER2+ cancers that are at a heightened risk for developing brain metastasis within three years of having been diagnosed with HER2+ cancer. Some embodiments are methods that include the steps of contacting at least a portion of the tumor tissue from patients with probes that interact with the products of a set of thirteen genes that are expressed in these patients at markedly higher levels than in similarly situated patients that are not a heightened risk for developing brain metastasis within this three year window. In some embodiments the tissue samples are assayed from the presence of RNA indicative of the expression of member of a set of 13 genes identified as being differentially expressed in patients with and without a heightened risk for developing brain metastasis.

  • Patent number: 6341366
    Abstract: In a rule-driven method and system for editing a physical integrated circuit layout formed from a plurality of working shapes, a desired one of the working shapes is initially created on a computer monitor. After calculating a width value associated with the desired one of the working shapes, the width value is verified to determine if it violates a minimum distance as defined by relevant design rules of an applied fabrication technology. Automatic adjustment of the geometry of the desired one of the working shapes to comply with the relevant design rules is subsequently performed upon verification that the width value violates the minimum distance.

  • Patent number: 6063036
    Abstract: A portable alarm apparatus for use by a sudden heart attack patient is provided that is characterized by a housing part connected to a suspension member for hanging around a patient's neck. Sensors are disposed on the suspension member and connected to an extending lead, enabling the sensors to contact respective pulse spots on the patient's neck, due to the downward force resulting from gravity acting on the housing part. The sensors detect the pulse signals in an artery in the user's neck corresponding to heartbeats and output an electrical signal for input to a control circuit disposed in the housing part for storage, display and generation of a warning alarm.

  • Patent number: 4074405
    Abstract: A tow of continuous filaments is fed by aspiration into a stream of compressible fluid. The stream containing the filaments is directed into contact with a barrier disposed within a chamber at a force sufficient to initiate crimping of the filaments. A major portion of the compressible fluid is separated from the filaments and expelled from the chamber. The filaments are transported through the chamber by continuous movement of a surface therein at sufficient velocity to cause overfeeding of the filaments, whereby the filaments are forced against a mass of the tow and emerge from the chamber in crimped form.

  • Patent number: 4024611
    Abstract: Continuous filaments are fed by aspiration into a stream of heated fluid. The filaments are then contacted with at least a second stream of heated fluid to increase the temperature of the filaments. The combined streams of fluid containing the filaments are directed into contact with a barrier disposed within a chamber at a force sufficient to initiate crimping of the filaments. A major portion of the fluid is separated from the filaments and expelled from the chamber. The filaments are transported through the chamber by continuous movement of a surface therein at sufficient velocity to cause overfeeding of the filaments, whereby the filaments are forced against a mass thereof and emerge from the chamber in crimped form.

  • Patent number: 4024610
    Abstract: Continuous filaments, e.g. in the form of yarn, are fed by aspiration into a stream of heated fluid. The stream containing the filaments is directed into contact with a barrier disposed within a chamber at a force sufficient to initiate crimping of the filaments. A major portion of the fluid is separated from the filaments and expelled from the chamber. The filaments are transported through the chamber by continuous movement of a surface therein at sufficient velocity to cause overfeeding of the filaments, whereby the filaments are forced against a mass thereof producing crimps therein. One or more streams of heated fluid are then contacted with the mass of filaments to set the crimps. The crimped filaments emerge from the chamber through an outlet opening therein.
