  • Patent number: 10133321
    Abstract: A computer device may include one or more electronic components located in a passive cooling zone. A wall divides the passive cooling zone from an active cooling zone and acoustically isolating the active cooling zone from the passive cooling zone. A heat sink attached to at least one of the one or more electronic may extend from the passive cooling zone to the active cooling zone through the wall. At least one noise emitting component may be located in the active zone. A method of controlling noise in the computer device may include determining, by a processor of the computer device located in the passive cooling zone, a noise frequency of a noise emitting component located within an active cooling zone of the computer device. The processor may control a speaker within the active cooling zone to emit anti-noise cancelling the noise frequency.

  • Patent number: 10118126
    Abstract: A honeycomb structure has a cylindrical outer skin and a partition wall and a plurality of cells and a separator. A plurality of intersections intersecting the two partition walls each other are disposed in the outer skin. Some of the intersections are reinforced by the reinforcing part. Two angles ?1 and ?2 are formed by a radial direction of the outer skin and respective two partition walls intersecting with each other. A smaller of two angles ?1 and ?2 is larger than a predetermined angle ?th. Further, some of the reinforcing parts are respectively formed only on some of the intersections which are disposed in a vicinity of the separator.

  • Patent number: 10118151
    Abstract: The invention discloses a composite with an adsorption-visible light catalytic degradation synergistic effect and a preparation method and application thereof. The preparation method includes the specific steps that firstly, a bismuth oxyiodide/bismuth oxychloride composite nano-particle loaded activated carbon fiber composite ACF@BiOIxCl1-x is synthesized; then, the fiber surface is grafted with polyethyleneimine, and the end composite PEI-g-ACF@BiOIxCl1-x is obtained. The composite can rapidly adsorb pollutants in water, and meanwhile the pollutants are efficiently degraded with a photocatalyst loaded on the surface of the composite; besides, the purpose of recycling and reusing the photocatalyst is achieved, the comprehensive treatment capability of the composite is improved, the service life of the composite is prolonged, and the use cost is lowered.
