  • Patent number: 11471279
    Abstract: A quick-connect heart valve prosthesis that can be quickly and easily implanted during a surgical procedure is provided. The heart valve includes a substantially non-expandable, non-compressible prosthetic valve and a plastically-expandable frame, thereby enabling attachment to the annulus without sutures. A small number of guide sutures may be provided for aortic valve orientation. The prosthetic valve may be a commercially available valve with a sewing ring with the frame attached thereto. The frame may expand from a conical deployment shape to a conical expanded shape, and may include web-like struts connected between axially-extending posts. A system and method for deployment includes an integrated handle shaft and balloon catheter. A valve holder is stored with the heart valve and the handle shaft easily attaches thereto to improve valve preparation steps.

  • Patent number: 11437152
    Abstract: A diode assembly for producing a pulsed fusion event in a z-pinch driver. The diode assembly includes an inner core formed of a fusionable fuel source material including a lithium compound formed of one or more lithium isotopes and one or more hydrogen isotopes.

  • Patent number: 9153050
    Abstract: A visualization system for visualizing data obtained in a borehole includes a processor configured to process the data based on user input and instructions and provide output for display on a display device. The system may also include a computer-readable medium configured to store the instructions, the instructions including commands to output values of two or more types of parameters at two or more depth values. The instructions may include commands to provide a perspective top-down or bottom-up fly-through display of the borehole including a zoomed-in image of values closest to a user. The processor may also output a display of a photographic image at each of the two or more depth values based on a correspondence between the values of the two or more types of parameters and the plurality of parameters associated with the photographic image.

  • Publication number: 20140152659
    Abstract: A method for presenting measurements of properties of a subsurface material to a user includes: conveying a carrier through a borehole penetrating the subsurface material; performing a plurality of measurements of multiple properties of the subsurface material at multiple depths in the borehole using a plurality of downhole tools disposed at the carrier; constructing, with a processor, a three-dimensional mathematical model of the subsurface material using the plurality of measurements, the model having data from the plurality of measurements of the multiple properties; receiving, with the processor, an input from a user directing the processor to generate a three-dimensional image of the subsurface material as seen from a virtual viewer-window viewing the model, the input having a three-dimensional position and three-dimensional viewing direction of the virtual-viewer window within the model; generating the three-dimensional image with the processor; and displaying the generated three-dimensional image on a

  • Patent number: 3974698
    Abstract: A molten metal vacuum-type sampler for taking samples of molten metal from the mold used in an electroslag refining process while opposite voltages are applied across the electrode and the mold, the sampler being a box-shaped hollow body with a silica tube extending downwardly therefrom to be inserted through the slag cover into the molten metal for a few seconds to draw a metal sample into the hollow space of the sampler. The sampler has two insulation boards on opposite sides overlapping the sides to prevent an electrically conductive contact of the sampler with the nearby surfaces of the mold and the electrode. An insulated pipe attached to the top of the sampler forms a handle in its upper aspect and connects conduits and a valve optionally to an argon gas source or a vacuum reservoir.

  • Patent number: 3973076
    Abstract: A carbon brick/graphite lined furnace for melting, containing and pouring a special purpose slag composed of about 40 percent CaF.sub.2, 30 percent CaO and 30 percent Al.sub.2 O.sub.3 or a slag composed of about 70 percent CaF.sub.2 and 30 percent Al.sub.2 O.sub.3 which has a cylindrical configuration and a roof composed of high alumina ram refractory with openings therein for receiving heating electrodes composed of graphite, for feeding dry slag into the furnace and for exhausting fumes therefrom. The furnace has a pouring spout and the roof can be raised whereby the furnace is turnable about trunions for discharging the molten slag into an electroslag remelting process mold. Both the interior lining and the next surrounding lining are composed of graphite or carbon bricks or a combination thereof. An expansion layer of insulating material, powder alumina, surrounds the second lining. Following this are two further linings of refractory material.
