  • Publication number: 20190301036
    Abstract: Duct assembly and method of forming a duct assembly, the method including providing a preform body having an outer surface, disposing the preform body adjacent a sacrificial mandrel such that at least a portion of the preform body abuts an outer surface of the sacrificial mandrel, forming the duct assembly by depositing metal on the outer surface of the sacrificial mandrel and the preform body to define a unitary metallic tubular element with integral preform body and where depositing metal occurs at a temperature that does not damage the sacrificial mandrel, and removing the sacrificial mandrel to define the duct assembly.

  • Patent number: 9705966
    Abstract: A community of authors, readers and contributors interact with each other through a communication framework. The authors share creative works, such as fictional stories, for consumption by the readers and for commenting by the contributors. The readers may see successive drafts of the work as an author completes and revises the work. The contributors may provide comments or other contributions to assist the author. For example, the contributors may make suggestions about how to change the work or provide supplemental content, such as cover artwork, to the author. The author may recognize publicly contributors who provide helpful comments. The likelihood of an author completing a final draft of a work may be determined based on the author's activities regarding the work. The likelihood of a completed work being popular with readers may also be determined based on user interaction with a draft of the work.

  • Publication number: 20130209596
    Abstract: Disclosed is a mixture to create expandable curing bladders for use in the curing process of rubber compositions such as tires. The bladders have an increased service with the addition of the aramid fibers to the rubber polymer. The aramid fibers increase the tear resistance of the cured product allowing for an increased number of expansions and contractions of the rubber polymer during the curing process. The use of these aramid fibers allows the tire curing bladders to cure more tires without changing out the bladder increasing the cost efficiency of the tire curing bladder.

  • Patent number: 6640084
    Abstract: The complete outdoor radio unit for LMDS is a light weight, compact transceiver featuring planar circuitry. The transceiver uses cross polarization through an orthomodal transducer and frequency offset between transmit and receive to provide isolation between the transmitter and receiver. The transceiver includes three printed circuit boards directly attached by thermally conductive epoxy to a heat sink which forms part of the antenna dish/transceiver housing for effective heat transfer. Two of the waveguides are used as receiver and transmitter transmission lines into the orthomodal transducer, and two of the waveguides are used as bandpass filters. The transceiver also includes a DC—DC converter in the power supply which is modified to connect the base plate to the heat sink for compactness and improved heat transfer, and a frequency synthesizer with a phase locked loop hardwired to a single reference frequency for compact size.

    Abstract: The complete outdoor radio unit for LMDS is a light weight, compact transceiver featuring planar circuitry. The transceiver uses cross polarization through an orthomodal transducer and frequency offeset beteen transmit and receive to provide isolation between the transmitter and receiver. The transceiver includes three printed circuit boards directly attached by thermally conductive epoxy to a heat sink which forms part of the antenna dish/transceiver housing for effective heat transfer. One of the three circuit boards is a millimeter wave circuit board, which is attached to the heat sink by a millimeter ground plane. The millimeter ground plane has a plurality of cavities defined therein which form the lower portion of waveguide assemblies. Two of the waveguides are used as receiver and transmitter transmission lines into the orthomodal transducer, and two of the waveguides are used as bandpass filters. The waveguides interface with the millimeter wave board through microstrips.
