  • Publication number: 20220288970
    Abstract: A rim portion of a vehicle wheel has an outer flange portion. In a region of the outer flange portion, a space portion between spoke portions is disposed on a radial-direction inner side, a first inclined surface and a second inclined surface are provided. The first inclined surface is provided on an axial-direction outer side of an outer flange outer circumferential portion. The second inclined surface is on an axial-direction outer side of an outer flange inner circumferential portion. The first inclined surface is formed to incline from the axial-direction outer side toward an axial-direction inner side as the first inclined surface extends from a radial-direction outer side end toward the radial-direction inner side. The second inclined surface is a surface formed to incline from the axial-direction inner side toward the axial-direction outer side as the second inclined surface extends from the radial-direction outer side toward the radial-direction inner side.

  • Patent number: 11428225
    Abstract: A multistage compression system uses refrigerant and oil. The multistage compression system includes a low-stage compressor that compresses the refrigerant, a high-stage compressor that further compresses the refrigerant compressed by the low-stage compressor, an oil return pipe that returns the oil discharged by the high-stage compressor to the low-stage compressor, and an oil discharge pipe that discharges the oil in the low-stage compressor. The low-stage compressor includes a compression part that compresses the refrigerant, a motor that drives the compression part, and a container that houses the compression part and the motor. The container forms a high-pressure space storing compressed refrigerant. Inside of the oil return pipe and inside of the oil discharge pipe are connected to the high-pressure space.

  • Publication number: 20220270714
    Abstract: To provide a molecular structure generation method and a non-transitory computer-readable medium storing a program capable of generating various molecular structures while satisfying desired property values so as not to be localized around a specific molecular structure. A molecular structure generation method according to the present invention includes: a selection step of classifying a plurality of initial molecules prepared in advance into clusters based on a feature amount and selecting a starting molecule having a maximum confidence limit value from each of the classified clusters. The method further includes an evolutionary development step of evolving each of the starting molecules. Further the selection step and the evolutionary development step are repeatedly executed for all molecules including the initial molecules and the evolved starting molecules to generate a new molecular structure.
