  • Patent number: 11613904
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing a tower structure includes providing an additive printing device having at least one printer head atop a support surface. The method also includes positioning a pre-fabricated component adjacent to the support surface. The pre-fabricated component is constructed of a composite material reinforced with a plurality of reinforcement members. Further, portions of the plurality of reinforcement members protrude from the composite material. Moreover, the method includes printing and depositing, via the at least one printer head, a cementitious material onto the support surface to build up the tower structure layer by layer around the pre-fabricated component. Thus, the portions of the plurality of reinforcement members that protrude from the composite material reinforce the cementitious material around the pre-fabricated component.

  • Publication number: 20230092700
    Abstract: The present invention discloses an image encryption method based on an improved class boosting scheme, which comprises the following steps: acquiring parameters of a hyperchaotic system according to plaintext image information: generating weights required by class perceptron networks through the plain text image information: bringing the parameters into the hyperchaotic system to obtain chaotic sequences, and shuffling the chaotic sequences by a shuffling algorithm: pre-processing the chaotic sequences after shuffling to obtain a sequence required by encryption: and bringing a plaintext image and the sequence into an improved class boosting scheme to obtain a ciphertext image, wherein the improved class boosting scheme is realized based on the class perception networks. The method solves the problems that update and prediction functions in an original boosting network are too simple and easy to predict or the like, so as to obtain the ciphertext image with higher information entropy.

  • Publication number: 20230042380
    Abstract: Described is a system for transmitting a flexural wave acting on one structure to another structure. In one example, a system includes a first structure having a first property and a first end and a second structure having a second property and a second end connected to the first end of the first structure. The first property is different from the second property and may be related to the material and/or geometric properties of the first and second structures. A mechanical resonator is connected to the first structure at a distance from the first end of about a quarter-wavelength of the frequency of a flexural wave acting on the first structure. The mechanical resonator matches a first mechanical impedance of the first structure to a second mechanical impedance of the second structure to allow high transmission of the flexural wave acting on the first structure to the second structure.

  • Publication number: 20230015976
    Abstract: Systems and methods for virtually coupled resonators to determine an incidence angle of an acoustic wave are described herein. In one example, a system includes a processor and first and second transducers in communication with the processor. The first transducer produces a first signal in response to detecting an acoustic wave, while the second transducer produces a second signal in response to detecting the acoustic wave. The system may also include a memory in communication with the processor and having machine-readable instructions that cause the processor to modify the first signal and the second signal using a virtual resonator mapping function to generate a modified first signal and a modified second signal. The virtual resonator mapping function changes the first signal and the second signal to be representative of signals produced by transducers located within a hypothetical chamber of a hypothetical resonator.
