  • Publication number: 20200372061
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on a computer storage medium, facilitate cross-platform content muting. Methods include detecting a request from a user to remove, from a user interface, a media item that is provided by a first content source and presented on a first platform. One or more tags that represent the media item are determined. These tags, which indicate that the user removed the media item represented by the one or more tags from presentation on the first platform, are stored in a storage device. Subsequently, content provided by a second content source (different from the first content source) on a second platform (different from the first platform) is prevented from being presented. This content is prevented from being presented based on a tag representing the content matching the one or more tags stored in the storage device.

  • Patent number: 10435775
    Abstract: Methods of refining the grain size of titanium and titanium alloys include multiple upset and draw forging. Titanium and titanium alloy workpieces are heated to a workpiece forging temperature within a workpiece forging temperature range in the alpha+beta phase field. The workpiece may comprise a starting cross-sectional dimension. The workpiece is upset forged in the workpiece forging temperature range. After upsetting, the workpiece is multiple pass draw forged in the workpiece forging temperature range. Multiple pass draw forging may comprise incrementally rotating the workpiece in a rotational direction followed by draw forging the workpiece after each incremental rotation. Incrementally rotating and draw forging the workpiece is repeated until the workpiece comprises substantially the same starting cross-sectional dimension.

  • Patent number: 10337093
    Abstract: A method of processing a non-magnetic alloy workpiece comprises heating the workpiece to a warm working temperature, open die press forging the workpiece to impart a desired strain in a central region of the workpiece, and radial forging the workpiece to impart a desired strain in a surface region of the workpiece. In a non-limiting embodiment, after the steps of open die press forging and radial forging, the strain imparted in the surface region is substantially equivalent to the strain imparted in the central region. In another non-limiting embodiment, the strain imparted in the central and surface regions are in a range from 0.3 inch/inch to 1 inch/inch, and there exists no more than a 0.5 inch/inch difference in strain of the central region compared with the strain of the surface region of the workpiece. An alloy forging processed according to methods described herein also is disclosed.
