  • Patent number: 10641898
    Abstract: An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and laser generator may be used to measure structural displacements. The system may measure relative movement of the UAV and the structure, as well as individual movement of the UAV. The individual movement of the UAV may then be subtracted from the relative movement of the UAV and the structure, in order to accurately calculate structural displacements.

  • Patent number: 10190370
    Abstract: The present invention provides a self-healing wellbore seal system comprising a casing, a fiber reinforced polymer layer, and layer of polymer cement. The layers are bonded together and configured to create a low permeable and ductile seal at discrete locations of the wellbore or along the wellbore. The polymer layer may be chemically bonded to the casing and inhibits the formation of a microannulus at the casing. The polymer layer may be an aramid fiber reinforced polymer, a fiber reinforced polymer layer, or a glass reinforced polymer layer.
