  • Publication number: 20200184082
    Abstract: A database-management system provides sargable evaluation for query predicates that compare an “LHS” encrypted database-column operand to an “RHS” expression operand. The system directly compares the two operands if all their attributes match. If the operands are encrypted string-type values differing only in length, the system truncates the RHS or pads it with encrypted blanks and, if a truncation loses meaningful data, evaluates the predicate as never satisfying an equality condition. In all other cases, if all attributes of a plaintext RHS don't match those of the plaintext data encoded into the LHS column, the system attempts to cast the RHS to match the plaintext LHS data. An error condition or data loss at this step allows the system to sargably evaluate the predicate without further analysis, but if the casting is successful and error-free, the system encrypts the resulting RHS and performs a sargable predicate evaluation.

  • Patent number: 10662866
    Abstract: A diesel engine includes a cylinder head, a cylinder sleeve, a piston, an injector, and a combustion chamber. The top side of the piston includes an annular top surface, an annular collision belt and an annular cavity. The collision belt includes a collision surface, an upper guide surface, and a lower guide surface. An annular throat is formed between the upper guide surface and the cylinder head. The collision belt divides the combustion chamber into a headspace and a central portion. The volume of the headspace is more than three times of the volume of the central portion. A major portion of the fuel jet injected by the injector is directed into the headspace. The results are faster mixing of fuel and air and complete combustion in the combustion chamber, and a reduction of fuel consumption rate by 2%. A method for fuel distribution and combustion is also disclosed.
