  • Patent number: 5265247
    Abstract: A method for maintaining in a computer memory laboratory test records for a plurality of projects, particularly adapted to projects for cementing oil or gas wells, are disclosed. Records of data identifying the plurality of projects and records of test data for the plurality of projects are entered within the computer memory. Data from selected records are compiled in a predetermined report format. More particularly disclosed is a method of designing a cement job for an oil or gas well. This includes receiving into a computer, programmed with records of data in predetermined categories for a plurality of previous cement jobs, a field of search for a selected predetermined category of data pertinent to a cement job being designed. Automatic searching within the computer finds records which contain data within the field of search. These are displayed. Design data are selected in response to the displayed records and the design data are stored in the computer in a record for the cement job being designed.

  • Patent number: 4853883
    Abstract: An apparatus for use in a railway train simulator includes a control station which has a first microcomputer for receiving and transmitting, via a conventional transmission protocol, train simulation signals to a second microcomputer. The second microcomputer provides master control for the apparatus. The second microcomputer is adapted to link with and operate from multiple control stations and multiple computer control terminals. Information is provided in an enhanced manner through one or more color graphics terminals, plotters and printers. Displays of simulated trains and track selections can be displayed at different, selectable scales.

  • Patent number: 4827438
    Abstract: A system includes an interface through which actual train operating data can be transferred from a recording medium, such as a magnetic tape, into a train simulator. The date contents of the magnetic tape are generated from real-time data obtained on-board an operating locomotive. For entering additional data, the interface switches a manual data entry terminal to the train simulator in response to a control signal provided by the train simulator. A method incorporating this system simulates train responses to the actual train operating data.
