  • Patent number: 10584652
    Abstract: Methods and systems for operating an engine with an electrically driven compressor are described. In one example, a model in a controller determines one or more temperatures of the electrically driven compressor to establish a power output upper threshold that is not to be exceeded by the electrically driven compressor. Various actuators may be adjusted responsive to the power output upper threshold to reduce the possibility of electrically driven compressor degradation.

  • Publication number: 20190272812
    Abstract: An acoustic liner and a method of attenuating noise are provided. The acoustic liner includes a face sheet, a back sheet spaced from the face sheet, and a core layer extending between the face sheet and the back sheet. The core layer includes a plurality of resonant cells, each resonant cell including at least one cell wall coupled to the back sheet along a cell wall base edge. The at least one cell wall extends from the back sheet at an angle toward the face sheet. The at least one cell wall further coupled to the face sheet along a cell wall top edge. The resonant cell is formed in a predetermined shape and contains a volume in a space defined by the at least one cell wall, the back sheet, and the face sheet. The cell wall base edge length is greater than the cell wall top edge length.

  • Publication number: 20110266744
    Abstract: The present invention, hereinafter referred as the Flip Coin Bouncer, is a variation on the classic game of Quarters. The object of the Flip Coin Bouncer is to flip a coin toward a specially designed goal in an effort to force opponents to take a drink. The game's playing unit is fashioned from a durable wood, cardboard, or plastic material, and measures approximately five and one-half inches in length, three and one-half inches in width, and one to one and one-half inches in depth. The base consists of an angled incline, culminating in an attached goal post. Shaped as a rectangle or, in another embodiment, as a pennant, the goal contains a centrally positioned hole for coins to pass through. The goal, as well as the base, is decorated with various sports themed logos. To support the goal within the base, a pen or similar object is attached and reflects the goal post.
