  • Patent number: 10287440
    Abstract: A steel product may include a metallic anticorrosion coating of an aluminum alloy. So that such a steel product possesses high media resistance, more particularly high acid resistance and corrosion resistance, the steel product may be immersed in a liquid-melt coating bath that includes an aluminum alloy. In addition to Aluminum and unavoidable impurities, the aluminum alloy may include at least one of 0.2-2% by weight Mn or 0.2-7% by weight Mg, 0.5-5% by weight Fe, and at least one of 0.05-0.4% by weight Ti or 0.05-0.4% by weight Zr. A method for producing such steel products may involve providing a steel product in a hot-rolled or cold-rolled state, activating a surface of the steel product to remove passive oxides, and coating the surface-activated steel product by immersion in a liquid-melt coating bath that comprises an aluminum alloy having the aforementioned composition.

  • Publication number: 20170322984
    Abstract: Example methods and systems are directed to providing multi-dimensional search results. A source (e.g., a closed captioning stream) may provide a series of keywords. The series of keywords may be used to generate a series of searches. The results from the searches may be presented as part of a user interface in a grid. For example, one row may be presented for each keyword, with the row for the keyword containing the results from searching using that keyword. Alternatively, one column may be presented for each keyword, with the column for the keyword containing the results from searching using that keyword. The series of keywords may be generated once. Alternatively, new keywords may be periodically added to the series of keywords, causing the grid to be updated. Old keywords and their corresponding search results may periodically be removed from the grid.
