  • Patent number: 10843788
    Abstract: A wing airframe for a wing of a tiltrotor aircraft includes a wing airframe core assembly and a wing skin assembly disposed on the wing airframe core assembly. The wing skin assembly includes an outer skin and a damping sublayer, the damping sublayer interposed between the outer skin and the wing airframe core assembly. The tiltrotor aircraft includes a pylon assembly subject to aeroelastic movement during forward flight. The wing is subject to deflection in response to the aeroelastic movement of the pylon assembly. The damping sublayer reduces the deflection of the wing, thereby stabilizing the wing during forward flight.

  • Publication number: 20200354046
    Abstract: An aircraft having a differential rotor speed resonance avoidance system. The aircraft includes an airframe having structural elements subject to resonant vibration at critical frequencies. A thrust array is coupled to the airframe. The thrust array includes at least four rotor systems distributed about the airframe, each rotor system operable over a range of rotor speeds. A flight control system is operably associated with the thrust array and is configured to independently control the rotor speed of each rotor system. While preserving flight dynamics during flight operations, the flight control system selectively increases the rotor speed of some of the rotor systems by a speed delta and decreases the rotor speed of others of the rotor systems by the speed delta to avoid generating excitation frequencies by the rotor systems at the critical frequencies.

  • Patent number: 10413710
    Abstract: Drainage systems for excess body fluids and associated methods are disclosed herein. A drainage system in accordance with an embodiment of the present technology can include, for example, a drainage catheter, a first reference line, a second reference line, and a pressure sensor assembly. The catheter can include a flexible interface member and an inlet can be placed in fluid communication with a site of excess body fluid within a patient. A first flexible region of the first reference line can be in pressure communication with the flexible interface member, and a second flexible region of the second reference line can be in pressure communication with the surrounding atmosphere. The pressure sensor assembly can be spaced apart from the flexible regions, and measure the pressures of the first and second reference lines. This information can be used to determine the pressure at the site of excess body fluid.
