Abstract: An article of footwear may be constructed of a matrix of beads. For example, by preconfiguring the row length and the number of beads in a given row, the bead matrix may be configured to form a three dimensional shape that pulls towards a centerline or is concave.
Abstract: A composite core includes a plurality of tubes, each the plurality of tubes comprising a plurality of fibers disposed in a polymeric matrix. Adjacent tubes of the plurality of tubes are adhesively bonded to one another along sides of the adjacent tubes. A method of making a composite core includes the steps of providing a plurality of tubes, each of the plurality of tubes including a plurality of fibers disposed in a polymeric matrix, and adhesively bonding adjacent tubes of the plurality of tubes along sides of the adjacent tubes. A method of making a composite core such that a removable band is included in the core, the removable band being configured to be removable through a procedure subsequent to the cure of the composite core, thereby producing gaps in the core.

Abstract: A projection screen that allows sound to pass through the screen while video is reflected is provided. This screen is provided using a first non-perforated reflecting screen of a first density, and at least one perforated reflecting screen of a second density, wherein the first density is greater than the second density.
Abstract: A net structure includes a plurality of metal rightwards inclined wires including, in sequence, a first rightwards inclined wire, a second rightwards inclined wire, and an N-th rightwards inclined wire. The net structure further includes a plurality of metal leftwards inclined wires including, in sequence, a first leftwards inclined wire, a second leftwards inclined wire, and an N-th leftwards inclined wire. The first rightwards inclined wires intersects, in sequence, from the first rightwards inclined wire through the N-th rightwards inclined wire at an intersection at which a twine portion is formed. The second rightwards inclined wires intersects, in sequence, from the second rightwards inclined wire through the N-th rightwards inclined wire at an intersection at which a twine portion is formed. The N-th leftwards inclined wire intersects the N-th rightwards inclined wire at an intersection at which a twine portion is formed, thereby forming a net structure with a plurality of hexagonal meshes.
Abstract: A wire cloth includes metallic warp wires and metallic weft wires interwoven with one another, wherein the weft wires have each a diameter which is equal or smaller than a clear distance between two neighboring warp wires, and wherein the weft wires are constricted in crossing regions with the warp wires.
Abstract: The invention relates to a grid of synthetic material with two groups of parallel, load-bearing strands, wherein the strands of the first group extend in the longitudinal direction of the grid and the strands of the second group extend transversely to the longitudinal direction of the grid and the strands of both groups are joined together at their points of intersection. Alternating first and second portions are formed with strands extending in the direction of one of the two groups. The strand spacing of the first portions are larger than the strand spacing of the second portions. The second portions can be of an increased strength and can be used to fasten the grid without aids.
Abstract: A wire ring net, particularly for providing barriers for rocky walls and the like comprises a plurality of braided wire rings, each wire ring comprising, at a starting end of its wire, a first curled portion wound about the wire of the first turn and, at the terminal, end of the wire, a second curled portion wound about the rope forming the wire ring.
Abstract: A sieve tray for a sieve device that includes at least one sieve netting. The sieve netting includes wire netting having warp and weft wires mutually connected in a weave. The weave has mutually spaced alternating crossings extending diagonally with respect to the warp and weft wires.
Abstract: A wire-reinforced webbing material is disclosed for use in furniture, bedding and the like. The webbing includes a flat knitted fabric comprised of substantially elastic yarns such as polyester. A plurality of reinforcement wires are integrally knitted into the fabric structure in a lengthwise direction. The wires may be thin-gauge titanium or titanium alloy wires. Elastomeric yarns or cards may also be integrally knitted into the fabric structure parallel to the reinforcement wires. The reinforcement wires and elastomeric cords combine with the knitted fabric to yield a webbing material having both a high tensile strength and a resilient responsiveness to applied external loads.
Abstract: A net-like structure particularly for geotechnical applications which comprises a first and a second layer which are mutually spaced and joined one another by spacers which are co-extruded together with the layers. At least one of the layers comprises at least one set of yarns arranged at one end of the spacers; the spacers have a reduced transverse cross-section.
Abstract: A method for weaving beads together in order to form a textured chamber comprised of woven strings of beads and products generated thereby is shown. A plurality of bead strings, referred to herein as chains, are used which are comprised of beads connected by strings. Each bead has spacing corresponding to and functionally working with the spacing of the joining strands of string. There is near identity as far as bead spacing and bead size in the preferred embodiment between the multiple hanging chains and the single locking chain of beads. Two to three beads of each hanging chain are skipped, while preferably each bead after one or more initial strands of the locking chain are used in order to form a structure which has flexibility but strong contact. When multiple (three or more) separate chains are inter-woven with appropriate spacing, then the resulting structure is expanded outward to form a tube. This tube can be maintained by proper spacing and by locking the beads at either end.
Abstract: A packing material wherein one or a plurality of hard metal wire and one or a plurality of soft metal wire are tied up or twisted in a bundle to construct a weft material wherein the ratio of the number of the former to the number of the later is 1:1-0.3, the weft material is put in weft knit processing such as plain stitch, rib stitch, pearl stitch, welt stitch, half cardigan, full cardigan, plating stitch and inter-lock stitch, and Brinell hardness of said hard metal wire is 90-240 (Kg/mm2) and Brinell hardness of said soft metal is 40-55 (Kg/mm2).
Abstract: A lacquer-coated wire having a noncircular cross-section with a long cross-sectional axis and a short cross-sectional axis, wherein the long cross-sectional axis and the short cross-sectional axis extend perpendicularly to each other. The lacquer-coated wire includes a metal wire and a lacquer coating having insulating and baked lacquer properties and is intended particularly for manufacturing electrical coils. The lacquer coating has on sides to be assigned to the longer cross-sectional axis a smaller thickness than on the sides to be assigned to the shorter cross-sectional axis. A method of manufacturing a wire includes pressing a lacquer-coated wire having a round cross-section into a wire having a long cross-sectional axis and a short cross-sectional axis, wherein the ratio of the axes is at most 3:1.
Abstract: A wire netting, preferably used as a gravel screen or for protecting a soil surface layer is woven from corrosion-resistant wires and either fitted on the soil surface or secured in an almost upright position on a slope or something similar. The wires in the wire netting are manufactured from heavy-duty steel, which has a nominal strength in the region of 1000 to 2200 N/mm2 and steel wire may be used for this for stranded wires or spring steel wire. The wire netting is manufactured from rectangular, diagonal netting and it has a three-dimensional, mattress-like structure.
