  • Publication number: 20200222978
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to partial integrated core-shell investment casting molds that can be assembled into complete molds. Each section of the partial mold may contain both a portion of a core and portion of a shell. Each section can then be assembled into a mold for casting of a metal part. The partial integrated core-shell investment casting molds and the complete molds may be provided with filament structures corresponding to cooling hole patterns on the surface of the turbine blade or the stator vane, which provides a leaching pathway for the core portion after metal casting. The invention also relates to core filaments that can be used to supplement the leaching pathway, for example in a core tip portion of the mold.

  • Publication number: 20180161853
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to integrated core-shell investment casting molds including a main core portion, a core tip portion, and a shell portion with at least one cavity between the core portion and the shell portion. The cavity defines the shape of a cast component upon casting and removal of the ceramic mold. These molds also provide filament structures corresponding to cooling hole patterns in the surface of the turbine blade or the stator vane, which provide a leaching pathway for the core portion after metal casting. At least two ceramic tip filaments connect the core tip portion and the shell portion and eliminate the need for tip pins or a shell lock to hold the tip plenum core in place during casting. The invention also relates to core filaments that can be used to supplement the leaching pathway, for example in a core tip portion of the mold.

  • Patent number: 8911973
    Abstract: The present invention provides methods, compositions, and kits comprising snap-back primers used for forming 3? hairpin structures, 5? hairpin structures, and double hairpin structures. The hairpin structures may be used for detecting target sequences (e.g., such as small RNA target sequence), for detecting polymorphisms in target sequences (e.g., such as polymorphisms located near the 5? or 3? ends of the target sequence), or other nucleic acid characterization methods. In certain embodiments, the hairpin structures form invasive cleavage structures (e.g., in combination with a probe or upstream oligonucleotide) which may be cleaved by structure-specific enzymes in order to detect the presence or absence of a particular nucleotide or nucleotide sequence.

  • Publication number: 20070204063
    Abstract: Message delivery approaches are disclosed in which senders can define filters with associated actions for evaluation in relation to specified messages. After creating and storing filters with specified actions, senders dispatch messages to a processing system, which evaluates the filters against the messages. If a match occurs, the processing system performs the specified actions on the messages. In one embodiment, the processing system can send the same message multiple times to different receiving systems, and can modify the source IP address and outbound interface of the message for each receiving system. Further, the source IP address or interface may be modified by a filter in response to external events, such as a receiving system blocking another copy of the message.
