  • Publication number: 20180197364
    Abstract: A coin-operated washing/drying machine including a cabinet and a coin box assembly disposed within the cabinet. A supporting structure is fixedly disposed within the cabinet. At least a bottom surface of the coin box assembly is fixedly connected with the supporting structure by a fastener. The fastener passes through from the interior of the coin box assembly and is fixedly connected with the supporting structure. The supporting structure is disposed within the cabinet; the bottom surface of the coin box assembly is fixedly connected with the supporting structure; the fasteners such as screws are thus invisible from an overall appearance. Since the coin box assembly is fixed to the supporting structure by the bottom surface to cause such a fixing structure to be hidden in the bottom surface of the coin box assembly, thereby achieving a good anti-theft effect.

  • Publication number: 20180157526
    Abstract: A quasi-automatic method is provided to parallelize user programs with little or no changes in their original design, implementation or compiled binary code. The users issues a simple indication to inform a runtime system about the intent to run the programs in a parallel or distributed manner, and the runtime system executes a plurality of programs based on the original program to conduct the same computation with parallelization. The semantics of the original program is reused, and task instances are created based on the semantics and executed in parallel or distributedly. The method provides an easy yet reliable method for accelerating computation by distributing the original program processes on multiple computers. Through a semantics-aware I/O control and coordination, the runtime system improves the consistency between the logical result data generated by the parallel computation and the expected result data from the original program should it be executed on one computer.

  • Patent number: 9978344
    Abstract: A method for caching images in a virtual environment uses hash tables to store information about an application or window and to store updated images. Suitable areas of applications or windows are fixed relative to the window for many cases, and also include a relatively small number of possible display statuses. Hash tables are used on an agent side and a client side to track previous image updates. When an updated image is determined to be already stored in a cache, the agent side can transmit a hash identifying the image to the client side, and the client side can update the display with the cached image.

  • Publication number: 20180108888
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a battery module. The battery module comprises: a plurality of mono-batteries arranged along an arrangement direction; and a frame receiving and fixing the plurality of mono-batteries. The battery module further comprises a plurality of isolating plates, each isolating plate is interposed between two adjacent mono-batteries, each isolating plate is provided with a through hole penetrating along the arrangement direction. Each isolating plate is configured to be capable of self-foaming to make a volume of each isolating plate expanded when each isolating plate is heated and a temperature of each isolating plate is more than 200° C. When one mono-battery suffers thermal runaway, the through hole of each isolating plate can form air thermal resistance, thereby preventing heat generated by the runaway mono-battery from massively and quickly transferring to the large surfaces of the adjacent mono-batteries, so as to achieve the purpose of thermal isolation.

  • Patent number: 9896746
    Abstract: A method for preparing element diffusion-type composite substrate and it belongs to the field of high-temperature coated superconductor substrate preparation. The rolled composite nickel-tungsten alloy substrate is heated and thermally insulated, meanwhile, both ends of the rolled substrate are applied with a low voltage and high current density pulse current. High-performance nickel-tungsten alloy composite substrate is obtained with the method in the present invention and the sandwich-like composite substrate has low ferromagnetism and high strength due to higher solute diffusion from inner layer to outer layer, yet which does not affect the formation of sharp cubic texture on the surface of the composite substrate.
