  • Patent number: 11027705
    Abstract: The windscreen wiper device includes a wiper element and a least one carrier element. The wiper device also includes a connecting device, which includes a base and a joint part. The joint part has a top wall that extends in a lateral direction between a pair of side walls. The joint part also has a button configuration for lockingly attaching the connecting device with at least two different types of oscillating wiper arms. The button configuration includes first and second buttons, each of which is attached with the side walls via resilient strips. The resilient strips extend directly from the side walls to the buttons. The resilient strips bias the buttons into raised positions wherein the buttons project above the top walls. The resilient strips also allow the buttons to move to a pressed position wherein a top surface of the respective button is generally flush with the top wall.

  • Patent number: 10836360
    Abstract: The windscreen wiper device includes a wiper element and a carrier element. A base of a connecting device is fixedly attached with the carrier element, and a joint part is pivotably attached with the base. The joint part has a top wall and a pair of side walls and a button configuration for locking attachment with different types of oscillating arms. The button configuration includes a first button and a pair of resilient strips that extend from the side walls to the first button and bias the first button into a raised position. The resilient strips also allow the first button to move to a pressed position. A second button is attached with the first button, and the second button is pivotable about a living hinge from a first position, wherein the second button projects above the top wall, to a second position wherein the second button is recessed.

  • Patent number: 10668897
    Abstract: The windscreen wiper device includes an elastomeric wiper blade that extends in a longitudinal direction. At least one pre-curved longitudinal strip is operably attached with the wiper blade and biases the wiper blade into a curved shape. A connecting device is secured with the at least one strip. The at least one strip includes a pair of tabs that extend longitudinally towards one another and project vertically. The tabs cooperate with the connecting device to secure the connecting device with the at least one longitudinal strip.

  • Patent number: 10481040
    Abstract: A boundary layer suction system adapted to a surface exposed to the circulation of a fluid. The system comprises a portion of the surface, a bifurcation element for bifurcating a mass of fluid flowing along the front face of the surface, comprising an airfoil-shaped cross-section such that the fluid is bifurcated into a first and a second flow, a slot located on the portion of the surface and downstream of the leading edge of the bifurcation element, the slot communicating the front and the rear faces of the portion of the surface, and an arrangement to provide a pressure difference between the front and the rear faces of the surface around the slot, such that a suction of the boundary layer is performed through the slot by the pressure difference.

  • Patent number: 9452833
    Abstract: A drainage mast able to drain effectively the liquid contained in the compartment of an aircraft when the pressure within the compartment is lower than the outside pressure without using any pressure control active device and without causing any significant perturbation to the aerodynamic behavior of the aircraft. The drainage mast is configured with a cross section area decreasing from its entry section to the compartment to its outlet section and is disposed at an acute angle ? relative to the compartment in the airflow direction. The entry and outlet sections have two perpendicular symmetry axes of different length, the entry section is arranged with its longer axis of symmetry substantially parallel to the airflow direction. The drainage mast has a symmetrical configuration with respect to a plane substantially perpendicular to the fuselage envelope passing through the longer axis of symmetry of the entry section.
