  • Patent number: 11155474
    Abstract: Methods of treating water to promote the health of aquatic organisms are described. The method may include introducing pulverized kaolin into the water. The pulverized kaolin may have a particle size distribution such that at least 30% by weight of the particles pass through a 60 mesh screen. For example, the pulverized kaolin may be in the form of a dry powder having a d50 diameter less than 300 ?m. The pulverized kaolin may remain dispersed or suspended in the water without dispersants and/or surfactants, e.g., to reduce the amount of at least one pathogenic microorganism present in the water and/or to reduce or prevent exposure of aquatic organisms to the pathogenic microorganism(s).

  • Patent number: 11150105
    Abstract: The present general inventive concept relates to methods and systems to select and display information on an avionics display screen. The systems and methods allow for the selection and display of information using knobs to highlight and select the desired information for display, eliminating the need for a cursor function. The systems and methods also provide for multiple pages and/or multiple windows or “tiles” within these pages and/or windows simultaneously on a single screen of a display, with each window, page, and/or tile being fully controlled independently when selected. The present general inventive concept also relates to systems and methods to provide multiple cues on an electronic display system altitude tape to a pilot in advance and impending approach to a predefined altitude. The present general inventive concept also relates to systems and methods to employ variable resolution topographical data based on display range for an avionics navigation display.

  • Publication number: 20210248051
    Abstract: A test apparatus is provided for use with a mainframe and an adapter. The test apparatus includes a logical adapter interface unit and a control system. The logical adapter interface unit is interposable between the adapter and the mainframe whereby an I/O signal transmittable from the adapter and to the mainframe is transmitted through the logical adapter interface unit. The logical adapter interface unit is configured to manipulate the I/O signal. The control system is coupled to the logical adapter interface unit and the mainframe and is configured to control manipulations of the I/O signal by the logical adapter interface unit to mimic a condition of I/O traffic being run through the adapter and to log a response of the mainframe to the manipulations.

  • Publication number: 20210132971
    Abstract: Embodiments include a method of organizing communications channels associated with virtual functions of a single root input and output virtualization (SR-IOV) adaptor. The method includes organizing a first coupling channel according to a first channel path identifier bound to designated communications over a first virtual function of the SR-IOV adaptor allocated according to first virtual function resources that support the first coupling channel. The method also includes enabling access to the first coupling channel to a first guest operating system. The method also includes receiving a teardown command associated with the first coupling channel. The method further includes initiating a reset of the first virtual function that deallocates the first virtual function resources associated the first virtual function.

  • Patent number: 10831475
    Abstract: Assessing portability of source code based on predictions from a learning model trained with historical outputs from a portability analyzer. A request is received as input to assess portability of source code from a source environment to at least one target environment. The learning model is applied to the source code to predict a level of portability of the source code to the at least one target environment. Results from a portability analyzer that are based on the level of portability predicted by the learning model include a confidence measure associated with one or more portions of the source code indicating the ease of portability of the one or more portions of the source code to each of the at least one target environments.
