  • Patent number: 10862183
    Abstract: A quad-mode microwave or RF bandpass filter comprises a housing of a conductive material defining a cylindrical cavity and containing a cylindrical dielectric resonator defined by a parallel pair of face surfaces. The dielectric resonator is held within the housing between a pair of support plates of a dielectric material. Internal coupling elements are provided above and/or below the dielectric resonator for coupling between resonating modes. Further mode coupling elements are protruding into the housing.

  • Publication number: 20180321404
    Abstract: A method, apparatus, and program product may model a subsurface formation by computing an iso-surface for an iso-value from a three-dimensional stratigraphic function (436) for a volume of interest in the subsurface formation, computing first and second strike traces (454, 456) following a topography of the computed iso-surface on respective first and second sides of a fault (452) in the volume of interest, extracting seismic data (458, 460) along the first and second strike traces, correlating the extracted seismic data along the first and second strike traces, and computing a fault displacement vector (C) for the fault from the correlated extracted seismic data along the first and second strike traces.

  • Patent number: 8902221
    Abstract: Prospect assessment and play chance mapping tools are provided. For assessing potential resources, example systems provide dynamically linked chance maps, transformed in real time from geological properties. Input geological maps or other data are dynamically linked to resulting chance maps, so that changes in the input maps automatically update the chance map in real time. Users can generate a custom risk matrix dynamically linking geological maps with chance maps via interface tools, dropping maps directly into the matrix. A transform may programmatically convert the geologic domain to the chance domain. The user can navigate input maps, select areas of interest, and drag-and-drop geologic properties into an uncertainty engine and distribution builder for uncertainty assessment based on geologic reality. A merge tool can programmatically unify multiple geological interpretations of a prospect. The merge tool outputs a single chance of success value for multiple geologic property values at each grid node.

  • Patent number: 8720852
    Abstract: The positioning of the actuating drive in a fuel injector with a piezoactuator (2) that is screwed into the housing (1) of the fuel injector is performed by applying a voltage (U) to the piezoactuator (2) that corresponds to a given idle stroke (h), and the surface grinding of the housing (3) and base plate (4) of the piezoactuator (2) when voltage is applied. Between the housing (1) of the fuel injector and the housing (3) of the piezoactuator (2), there is also provided a compensation collar (9) of a suitable thickness.

  • Patent number: 7281521
    Abstract: The sealing element has a ring consisting of an elastic material. The ring consists of a continuous support section, a first sealing lip, formed thereon for sealing the injector casing and a second sealing lip for sealing the cylinder head. The sealing lips project substantially inwards in a radial direction and together with the support section form a continuous groove of the ring. An alignment member is at least partially positioned in the groove of the ring, the alignment member is configured such that when a valve stem portion of the injector casing is positioned through the ring, the alignment member physically contacts the valve stem portion at two or more distinct locations to fix the ring non-positively around the valve stem portion such that the ring is prevented from physically contacting the valve stem portion.

  • Patent number: 7218037
    Abstract: A method is described for improving the long-term stability of a piezoelectric actuator encased in a potting compound containing or forming hydrogen atoms. Oxygen is contained in the piezoelectric actuator's piezoelectric ceramic. Appropriate means are employed so that unsaturated bonds of the hydrogen in the potting compound will release less oxygen from the piezoelectric ceramic. One means consists in reducing the concentration of hydrogen in the potting compound, with appropriate thermal processes as a result of which the concentration of hydrogen will be reduced to below a predefined threshold being applied after the piezoelectric actuator has been encased in the potting compound. Means that form bonds with the hydrogen in the potting compound or duct oxygen thereto are provided in further embodiments.

  • Patent number: 7134698
    Abstract: A sealing device (1) for a high-pressure sealing of line junctions comprises a cutting edge (2) and a protective edge (3).

  • Patent number: 7055762
    Abstract: The invention relates to an injection valve in which the movable valve parts and the valve seat (4) form the electrodes of a capacitor that is connected in an electric circuit, the capacity of said capacitor changing with the valve lift of the closing element. According to the invention, the valve seat (4) is configured in the form of an electrically conductive nozzle body (2) that is connected to the electric circuit and the closing element is configured in the form of a valve needle (5) that is connected to the electric circuit by its end surface opposite the valve seat (4).

  • Patent number: 6997392
    Abstract: The invention relates to an injection valve (1) comprising a booster piston (23), said piston delimiting a pump chamber (22) and a booster chamber (29). A valve (14) is provided in the inlet to the chamber (22). The valve is configured as a 3/2-way valve and controls the pressure in the pump chamber (22). The pressure in the pump chamber (22) is converted into a correspondingly increased pressure in the booster chamber (29) and in an injection chamber (34) containing an injection needle (6), by means of the booster piston (23). The use of the valve (14) allows a precise control of the injection times.
