  • Publication number: 20200217272
    Abstract: An acoustic liner includes a first face sheet, a second face sheet spaced from the first face sheet, and a plurality of sidewalls extending between the first face sheet and the second face sheet. The plurality of sidewalls defines a plurality of cells. Each cell of the plurality of cells defines a cavity between the first face sheet and the second face sheet. A bulk absorber is disposed within at least one cell of the plurality of cells. The bulk absorber further defines the cavity of the at least one cell of the plurality of cells. The first face sheet defines a plurality of apertures extending through a thickness of the first face sheet. Each aperture of the plurality of apertures is aligned with a respective cell of the plurality of cells.

  • Publication number: 20190318320
    Abstract: Workers often forget to enter clockings indicating when they have arrived or left work or transferred between work activities. Various embodiments provide a system that predicts the risk of potential missed worker clockings and delivers alerts to the workers and/or their managers when that risk is high. The system analyzes historical data to find previous instances of missed clockings at an organization, extracts feature information regarding the context of the missed clockings, and calibrates a missing clocking risk model. The model is then used in either an online or batch mode to predict the risk of workers missing upcoming scheduled clockings. Based on these risk scores and system configurations, alerts are generated for employees and managers reminding them about the upcoming clockings and lowering the amount of missed clockings and subsequent remedies.

  • Patent number: 7766308
    Abstract: A theater rigging assembly having a beam, which is attached to structural support members of a theater or other performing arts venue. The assembly further includes a winch assembly and head block that can be positioned at any point along the beam and selectively fixed in position. The winch portion includes cables for raising and lowering battens or other loads. The head block includes head sheaves, which redirect the cables to loft sheaves that are selectively attached to the beam. The head sheaves are diagonally displaced to separate the cables. The winch portion includes a motor, a gear box, a drum and a brake. The brake includes a ratchet and two brake disks. It uses at least one friction surface that contacts at least one of the brake disks to cause a pawl to engage or disengage from the ratchet.

  • Patent number: 7247213
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a connection for composite tubing is disclosed. The method includes maintaining tension on the composite fibers while “winding in” the connector to the composite tubing. The tension on the fibers results in the fibers bridging across traps of the connector as they are being wound. The bridging results in improved load bearing characteristics of the connection.
