  • Publication number: 20220372627
    Abstract: Methods of forming a desired geometry at a location on a superalloy part are disclosed. The method may include directing particles of a powder mixture including a low melt temperature superalloy powder and a high melt temperature superalloy powder to the location on the superalloy part at a velocity sufficient to cause the superalloy powders to deform and to form a mechanical bond but not a metallurgical bond to the superalloy part. The directing of particles continues until the desired geometry is formed. Heat is applied to the powder mixture on the repair location. The heat causes the low melt temperature superalloy powder to melt, creating the metallurgical bonding at the location. Another method uses the same directing to form a preform for repairing the location on the part. The low melt temperature superalloy powder melts at less than 1287° C., and the high melt temperature superalloy powder melts at greater than 1287° C.

  • Publication number: 20220375292
    Abstract: An electronic access control system and method that enables conditional access to electronic locking systems according to user-based and situation-based safety parameters. Aspects of the present disclosure provide for a mobile access interface whereby the network operations center can assess a safety risk for a service site based on a combination of user-generated inputs, sensor inputs and/or external data inputs. The system may comprise a dynamic rules engine configured to dynamically determine safety and compliance associated with an access-restricted area. If the access-restricted area is safe, the system may enable access according to one or more access protocols. If the access-restricted area is unsafe, or the user requesting access is not in compliance with one or more static or dynamic safety parameters, the system may disable standard access protocols and deny access to the requesting party.

  • Patent number: 11507402
    Abstract: An interface receives storage requests for storing data in a software-defined storage network using an append-only storage scheme. The requests include an identifier of a data object to be stored. The requests are agnostic of hardware-specific details of the storage devices. A virtualization layer accesses space allocation data for the storage devices; and policies for prioritizing performance. Based on the data and policies, a physical storage location at the plurality of storage devices is selected for storing the data object. Metadata is generated for the data object indicating that the data object is an append-only object and mapping the physical storage location of the data object to the identifier. The request is translated to instructions for storing the data object at the physical storage location using the append-only storage scheme. The data object is stored at the physical storage location using the append-only storage scheme.

  • Publication number: 20220365580
    Abstract: In controlling power in a portable computing device (“PCD”), a power supply input to a PCD subsystem may be modulated with a modulation signal when an over-current condition is detected. Detection of the modulation signal may indicate to a processing core of the subsystem to reduce its processing load. Compensation for the modulation signal in the power supply input may be applied so that the processing core is essentially unaffected by the modulation signal.
