  • Publication number: 20200333228
    Abstract: A notch treatment method for flaw simulation including providing the specimen with the notch, the notch having a re-melt material layer; isolating the notch; and selectively etching the notch to provide an etched surface of the notch; wherein at least a portion of the re-melt material layer has been removed from the notch. In one aspect, there is provided a notch treatment method for flaw simulation including providing the specimen with the notch, the notch having a re-melt material layer, the specimen includes steel or an alloy thereof; isolating the notch; and selectively etching the notch with a first etching solution and a second etching solution to provide an etched surface on the notch; wherein at least a portion of the re-melt material layer has been removed from the notch.

  • Patent number: 10733245
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus to track network topology changes are disclosed. An example topology tool to track a change to a network topology includes a message processor to, in response to a reporting message generated by a software defined network controller, identify a unique identifier (UID) associated with a network element to be subject to a topology change event, where the reporting message including topology change information corresponding to the topology change event scheduled to occur at a future time. A database search tool is to search a first topology database for a first post-confirmation data record corresponding to the UID and in response to the first post-confirmation data record missing from the first topology database, search a second topology database for a first pre-confirmation data record corresponding to the UID. A database controller is to generate a second pre-confirmation data record in response to the first pre-confirmation data record missing from the second topology database.

  • Patent number: 10620103
    Abstract: Devices (herein “powder spreadability inspection tools”) and methods are provided for evaluating the spreadability of powders utilized in additive manufacturing (AM) processes. In embodiments, the powder spreadability inspection tool includes a powder support surface on which a visual inspection area is provided, a spreader system including a spreader implement, and a powder dispenser. The spreader implement is movable relative to the powder support surface along a path, which extends or passes over the visual inspection area. The powder dispenser is operable to dispense a premeasured or metered volume of an AM powder sample onto the powder support surface ahead of the spreader implement. As the spreader implement moves along the path relative to the powder support surface, the spreader implement spreads a layer of the metered powder sample across the visual inspection area to allow a visual evaluation of the spreadability of the AM powder.

  • Patent number: 10033581
    Abstract: A method for retrieval of device-type managers is provided. A historical information of user's historical selection to device-type-managers (DTMs) is identified. The historical information represents a selected DTM and a VMR information of the selected DTM. The VMR information is related to vendor, model and revision of a field device. The VMR information of the selected DTM is associated with the selected DTM. The VMR information is retrieved. The DTMs to be recommended are evaluated, based on the historical information and the VMR information associated with the DTM. A result of evaluation on the DTMs to be recommended is generated. Based on the result of evaluation, a recommend list including one or more recommended DTMs to be launched by at least one of the plurality of client devices is generated.
