  • Publication number: 20190153911
    Abstract: An internal combustion engine 5 includes an intake valve spring 60 including a closely-wound section 62 and a sparsely-wound section 63. The closely-wound section 62 is provided so that elemental wire portions thereof are closely in contact with each other in the direction of the coil axial line L1 while an intake valve closes an intake port. The sparsely-wound section 63 is provided so that elemental wire portions thereof are spaced apart from each other in the direction of the coil axial line L1 while the intake valve closes the intake port. The coil outer diameter D62 of at least a part of the closely-wound section 62 is smaller than the coil outer diameter D63 of at least a part of the sparsely-wound section 63.

  • Publication number: 20180346949
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to provide an ?-glucan mixture in a preferable molecular weight range, which can be made into a transparent film with advantageous strength and water solubility when an edible film is made by using the ?-glucan mixture without adding any plasticizer. The above object is solved by providing an ?-glucan mixture, which is obtainable by a process comprising the steps of gelatinizing waxy starch and liquefying the resulting gelatinized waxy starch by allowing an amylase to act on it, having the following characteristics (1) and (2): (1) having the weight average molecular weight (Mw) in a range of 150 kDa to 3,000 kDa; and (2) having the value of dividing weight average molecular weight (Mw) with number average molecular weight (Mn), Mw/Mn, of 35.1 or lower.

  • Patent number: 10087880
    Abstract: An intake cam is positioned between first and second shaft supports that support an intake camshaft. An exhaust cam is positioned between third and fourth shaft supports that support an exhaust camshaft. An ignition plug unit extends between the intake camshaft and the exhaust camshaft and inward of the intake cam and the exhaust cam with a cylinder axis defining a reference position. A cylinder head includes a joint plane that is joined to a cylinder body. In a case where a virtual plane is defined by the joint plane and is perpendicular or substantially perpendicular to the cylinder axis, a distance between a portion, closest to the virtual plane, of the intake camshaft and the virtual plane is less than a distance between a portion, farthest from the virtual plane, of the intake port and the virtual plane.

  • Patent number: 10044226
    Abstract: A first oscillator is configured to be switchable between a disabled state and an oscillation state in which a first clock signal CLK1 having a first frequency is generated. A second oscillator oscillates at a second frequency that is lower than the first frequency, so as to generate a second clock signal. In (i) a power transfer phase in which electric power is transmitted to a wireless power receiving apparatus, a controller instructs the first oscillator to oscillate, and generates a first pulse signal for controlling a driver according to the first clock signal. In (ii) a selection phase in which the presence or absence of the wireless power receiving apparatus is detected, the controller generates a second pulse signal for controlling the driver at a predetermined time interval, which is measured based on the second clock signal, and during which the first oscillator is set to the disabled state.

  • Patent number: 9577474
    Abstract: A demodulator is mounted on a wireless power transmitter that conforms to the Qi standard, and demodulates an amplitude modulated signal superimposed on a coil current ICOIL that flows through a primary coil of a transmission antenna, or otherwise on a coil voltage across both ends of the primary coil. Multiple demodulating units are each configured to have respectively different configurations, to operate in parallel, to extract a demodulated component from the coil current ICOIL or otherwise from the coil voltage, and to generate baseband signals as demodulated signals. A signal processing unit employs a baseband signal that is correctly received, from among the multiple baseband signals generated by the multiple demodulating units, based on an error detection result obtained using a checksum.

  • Patent number: 9206763
    Abstract: An engine of a straddle-type vehicle includes a seal between a surrounding wall and a pipe. A cylinder head includes a first surrounding wall portion and a second surrounding wall portion. One end of the pipe is pressed in against the first surrounding wall portion. The second surrounding wall portion is located more distant from an attachment portion than the first surrounding wall portion is, and has an inner diameter larger than that of the first surrounding wall portion. The pipe includes an annular projection. The annular projection projects from the outer periphery of the pipe, and divides a space defined by the outer periphery of the pipe and the inner periphery of the second surrounding wall portion into subspaces arranged in an axial direction of the pipe when the one end of the pipe is pressed in against the first surrounding wall portion.

  • Patent number: 7163456
    Abstract: Engine cooling water is charged to a flexible diaphragm member (3d) to expand the flexible diaphragm member (3d) so that the substantial sectional area of an air passage (3b) is decreased when a ventilation resistance, in an air conditioning casing (2) in a maximum heating or a foot mode, is increased. On the other hand, the engine cooling water is discharged from the flexible diaphragm member (3d) to deflate the flexible diaphragm member (3d) so that the substantial sectional area of the air passage (3b) is increased when a ventilation resistance, in the air conditioning casing (2) in maximum cooling or face mode, is decreased. Thus, the property of a fan (3) can be changed into a property suitable for foot mode having a large ventilation resistance, while heating air is being supplied.

  • Patent number: 6971846
    Abstract: In a centrifugal blower, a casing forms a scroll duct on the outer periphery of a centrifugal fan. The scroll duct includes a motor scroll duct wall extending from the periphery of a motor casing wall in a radial direction, a suction scroll duct wall extending from the periphery of a suction casing wall in an axial direction, and an outer peripheral wall smoothly connecting the motor scroll duct wall and the suction scroll duct wall. The scroll duct walls include curves having substantially arc-shaped cross-sections. A radius of curvature of the arc of the motor scroll duct wall is greater than that of the suction scroll duct wall. The scroll duct does not form a protrusion in the inside. The air discharged from the fan creates a secondary flow in a single course of a swirling flow in the scroll duct. Therefore, noise due to interference with the discharging flow and secondary flow reduces.

  • Patent number: 6964555
    Abstract: In a centrifugal blower, a centrifugal fan is housed in a scroll casing and driven by a motor. The scroll casing includes a suction scroll wall and a motor scroll wall. The scroll casing forms a scroll air passage between a first protruding portion of the suction scroll wall and a second protruding portion of the motor scroll wall. A fin is provided in the scrolled air passage as a directing member for directing a secondary flow in a direction parallel to a direction of a primary flow discharging from the centrifugal fan. The fin restricts the secondary flow from colliding with the primary flow, thereby to reduce noise due to interference of the air flows.
