  • Patent number: 10836195
    Abstract: A technique is described for the application of three-dimensional (3D) relief to a substrate such as a ceramic tile using digital inkjet technology. In an example embodiment, the introduced technique includes application of binder ink to a portion of the surface of a substrate using a digital inkjet process. This binder ink forms a barrier layer which protects the portion of the surface of the substrate. Next, a brushing process is applied to remove unprotected portions of the substrate, thereby forming the 3D relief in the substrate.

  • Publication number: 20200300047
    Abstract: An apparatus for reducing torque in a drill string includes a clamp assembly having a first clamp segment and a second clamp segment, the first and second clamp segments each including two circumferential ends, the two circumferential ends of the first clamp segment being configured to be connected to the two circumferential ends of the second clamp segment so as to secure the clamp assembly around an oilfield tubular and prevent the clamp assembly from rotating relative to the oilfield tubular. An outer diameter surface of each of the first and second clamp segments is generally continuous in an axial direction. The apparatus also includes an outer sleeve positioned around the clamp assembly, wherein the clamp assembly is configured to rotate with the oilfield tubular and with respect to the outer sleeve.

  • Patent number: 10785017
    Abstract: Techniques for mitigating timing attacks via dynamically scaled time dilation are provided. According to one set of embodiments, a computer system can enable time dilation with respect to a program, where the time dilation causes the program to observe a dilated view of time relative to real time. Then, while the time dilation is enabled, the computer system can track a count of application programming interface (API) calls or callbacks made by a program within each of a series of time buckets and, based on counts tracked for a range of recent time buckets, scale up or scale down a degree of the time dilation.

  • Publication number: 20200057817
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a hierarchical tree may include nodes that each indicates an objective, and each non-root node of the nodes indicates an objective supporting an objective of at least one node with which the non-root node has a direct relationship. Based on a modification to an objective of a given node of the tree, a determination of whether at least one child node of the given node indicates an unsatisfiable objective (e.g., no longer suitably supporting the given node's objective). For a child node of the given node determined to indicate an unsatisfiable objective, a corresponding subset of the tree may be replaced with replacement nodes that each indicates a satisfiable objective (e.g., suitably supporting the given node's objective), where the corresponding subset includes (i) the child node and (ii) descendant nodes of the child node.

  • Patent number: 10540051
    Abstract: Techniques to facilitate obtaining feedback for an application associated with an industrial automation environment are disclosed herein. In at least one implementation, a graphical user interface (GUI) is displayed on a display system of a computing system, wherein the GUI includes primary content and a user feedback prompt, and the primary content is displayed on a majority of the display system. Responsive to a user selection of the user feedback prompt, the GUI is expanded to reveal a feedback area on the display system that provides a mechanism to receive user feedback. User input comprising the user feedback is then received. Responsive to receiving the user feedback, the GUI is contracted to conceal the feedback area on the display system.

  • Publication number: 20190327075
    Abstract: Techniques for mitigating timing attacks via dynamically triggered time dilation are provided. According to one set of embodiments, a computer system can track a count of application programming interface (API) calls or callbacks made by a program within each of a series of time buckets. The computer system can further determine that the count exceeds a threshold count for a predefined consecutive number of time buckets. Upon making this determination, the computer system can trigger time dilation with respect to the program, where the time dilation causes the program to observe a dilated view of time relative to real time.

  • Patent number: 10426689
    Abstract: A rotatable shock absorber assembly for a crutch. A guide pin is removably fixable within the upper portion of a support leg. A piston comprises a flange arranged proximate a saddle, comprising a top surface having two or more arcuate rotation grooves defined therein, and a main body defining an elongate slot enabling the guide pin to be inserted therethrough, such that the piston can translate along the elongate axis relative to the guide pin. A joint, can operably couple the piston to the saddle. The joint can rotate about the elongate axis relative to the piston. A biasing mechanism is configured to urge the piston along the elongate axis toward the armpit of the user whereby the saddle can be held stable in the armpit of the user and the support leg can rotate about, and translate along the elongate axis during use.
