  • Patent number: 11857990
    Abstract: Implementations provide cold spray additive manufacturing (“CSAM”) with gas recovery in situ in an open environment without requiring part disassembly and removal to a repair facility. Recapturing and reusing gas in an open environment reduces costs, rendering CSAM more commercially viable and efficient, and avoids risk of new damage to parts from contemporary pre-existing CSAM processes. A gas recovery nozzle attaches to a supersonic nozzle and sends used gas to a gas recovery sub-system by capturing gas that is deflected on impact with the part during CSAM. Captured gas is stored for reuse. A flexible coupling controls distance from the gas recovery nozzle to a part substrate to prevent (1) nozzle clogging; (2) stationary shock wave interference with gas flow; and (3) gas flow misdirection. The gas recovery nozzle also suppresses disruptive supersonic sounds. Implementations enable capture for later reuse of supersonically-propelled gas during in-situ CSAM in open environments.

  • Patent number: 11816120
    Abstract: Certain embodiments involve extracting seasonal, level, and spike components from a time series of metrics data, which describe interactions with an online service over a time period. For example, an analytical system decomposes the time series into latent components that include a seasonal component series, a level component series, a spike component series, and an error component series. The decomposition involves configuring an optimization algorithm with a constraint indicating that the time series is a sum of these latent components. The decomposition also involves executing the optimization algorithm to minimize an objective function subject to the constraint and identifying, from the executed optimization algorithm, the seasonal component series, the level component series, the spike component series, and the error component series that minimize the objective function. The analytical system outputs at least some latent components for anomaly-detection or data-forecasting.

  • Patent number: 10368924
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method for stabilizing a fractured bone. The method includes positioning an elongate rod in the medullary canal of the fractured bone and forming a passageway through the cortex of the bone. The passageway extends from the exterior surface of the bone to the medullary canal of the bone. The method also includes creating a bonding region on the elongate rod. The bonding region is generally aligned with the passageway of the cortex. Furthermore, the method includes positioning a fastener in the passageway of the cortex and on the bonding region of the elongate rod and thermally bonding the fastener to the bonding region of the elongate rod while the fastener is positioned in the passageway of the cortex.
