  • Publication number: 20190308345
    Abstract: Provided is a method for manufacturing a formed article that excels in shape retainability and appearance, using a sheet that contains a thermoplastic resin fiber and a continuous reinforcing fiber. The method for manufacturing a formed article comprises irradiating laser light onto a sheet having, arranged therein with a certain directionality, yarns that contain a thermoplastic resin fiber and a continuous reinforcing fiber, so as to allow at least a part of the thermoplastic resin fiber to be impregnated into the continuous reinforcing fiber; the laser light being irradiated so as to satisfy at least one of A or B below, over at least 70% or more of the laser irradiation area; A: irradiated in a direction 5 to 85° away from the direction of arrangement of yarns in the in-plane direction of the sheet; and B: irradiated in a direction 30 to 60° away from the direction perpendicular to the sheet plane.

  • Publication number: 20190309699
    Abstract: A control apparatus for a compression autoignition engine includes an engine, a spark plug, a controller, and sensors. After the spark plug ignites air-fuel mixture to start combustion, unburned air-fuel mixture is combusted by autoignition. The controller changes an SI rate in accordance with an operation state of the engine. Furthermore, the controller adjusts the SI rate when determining that the SI rate needs to be adjusted.

  • Publication number: 20190300661
    Abstract: Provided is a material having large anti-piercing force and small surface roughness. The material contains continuous reinforcing fibers that are juxtaposed unidirectionally, and having a polyamide resin impregnated therein, wherein the continuous reinforcing fiber gives a non-circular cross sectional shape, when viewed perpendicularly to the longitudinal direction thereof, with a flatness ratio, given by long diameter (D2)/short diameter (D1), of 1.5 or larger, and in at least one cross section of the material taken perpendicularly to the direction of the continuous reinforcing fibers being juxtaposed, the percentage of area occupied by the continuous reinforcing fibers, whose long diameter (D2) lying at an angle of less than 20 degrees away from the direction of the continuous reinforcing fibers being juxtaposed, is 30 to 90% by area of the continuous reinforcing fibers.

  • Publication number: 20190175894
    Abstract: The object of the present invention is to provide a test method using a novel administration method of an extract from inflamed tissues inoculated with vaccinia virus or a preparation containing the extract. It has been demonstrated that by sustainedly administering an extract from inflamed tissues inoculated with vaccinia virus or a preparation containing the extract by using a continuous administration device according to the present invention, a comparable effect is exerted at a very low dose compared with conventional administration methods such as oral administration. Therefore, the present invention can provide a test method using animals requiring less burden on a researcher, a treatment of patient at a low dose, and the like.

  • Publication number: 20140189981
    Abstract: A baby bottle holder, that fits a shoulder of a bottle body, that prevents slipping, is easily holdable, and has thermally-insulating grips to facilitate preparation of milk, is made of a thermally-insulating and flexible elastic member, and integrally includes a tubular cover and a conical cover therebelow covering the shoulder of the bottle body, and a tongue-shaped grip pair extending downward from symmetrical positions on both sides of the conical cover. Fingers grasp non-slip surfaces of the grips, which provide insulation from heat, and can easily shake the bottle body. During feeding prepared milk, the grasp of the fingers on the non-slip surfaces of the grips prevents slipping-off of the bottle body. An infant's hands can also grasp the grips preventing slipping-off of the bottle body.
