    Abstract: A climbing tool operative for climbing an artificial climbing wall, simulating dry tooling, ice climbing and mixed climbing. The tool has a strap replacing the axe portion used in outdoor climbing, the strap engaging a climbing wall hold. The tool has a grip attached to an angled shaft. The grip has a grasping portion for a hand that includes a pinky rest and a finger rest. The grip has a match rest for a second hand to grasp the tool above the grip in a “match maneuver.” The grip has an inward bias toward the wall from the shaft at about 160 degrees, and the angle in the shaft portion is about 160 degrees, providing an appropriate skeletal wrist angle when the tool is grasped. Because the climbing tool does not have any sharp points or edges, it does not damage an artificial climbing wall.

The first region of the second pixel is below the second region of the second pixel. The first regions of two adjacent sub-pixels are not adjacent such that two first regions do not form the two consecutive points and thus do not form a lightspot. Furthermore, in a low grey value display, the color-mixing effect is better because the first regions of sub-pixels are arranged in a triangle distribution. This also improves the color-mixing effect of RGB colors.

    Abstract: Linking parts are formed on one end of a first resin composite member and on one end of a second resin composite member in order to bond the ends together. For example, the linking parts may be wavy parts containing concave portions and convex portions. In this case, the wavy parts initially are heated and softened. Then, in a molding unit, respective pairs of confronting convex portions are overlapped with each other, and respective pairs of confronting concave portions are utilized to form a non-overlapping space. The overlapped convex portions are pressed and crushed, such that a base thermoplastic resin and fibers contained therein flow toward the non-overlapping space. Thereafter, the thermoplastic resin is cooled and hardened, whereby the first resin composite member and the second resin composite member are bonded integrally to obtain a resin composite structure.

  • Publication number: 20120315425
    Abstract: Provided is a composite material for a battery case and a method of manufacturing the same, in which a heat-dissipating layer, which is filled with a heat-dissipating filler, is interposed between layers to effectively dissipate heat generated in a battery through the heat-dissipating layer. As a result, the lifespan is increased and the stability of the battery package is ensured. Moreover, according to the present invention, a neat layer which is not filled with the heat-dissipating filler is interposed between the heat-dissipating layers, and thus it is possible to prevent deterioration in mechanical properties.

    Abstract: A shock-absorbing strap assembly for attachment to a load including an inelastic strap having an elongate direction and a widthwise direction and a discrete elastic member having an expandable portion. The elastic member is coupled to the inelastic strap. The inelastic strap is coupled to, and overlaps, the elastic member such that, when the strap assembly is in a relaxed state, the inelastic strap forms at least one slack. The strap assembly further includes a shoulder pad coupled to the inelastic strap and at least partially overlapping the inelastic strap and the elastic member, such that at least a portion of the inelastic strap slidably engages with at least a portion of the shoulder pad when an external tension is applied to the inelastic strap.

  • Patent number: 8268430
    Abstract: A method for producing a manufactured wood product using less desirable or discarded natural wood and a manufactured wood product produced by the described method. This inventive method comprises utilizing less desirable or discarded natural wood pieces by slicing the wood pieces into elongated strips that are then partially separated into elongate sections that maintain fibrous connectivity between the elongate sections. The elongate sections are dried and covered or impregnated with an adhesive. A second drying follows the adhesive application and the elongated strips are then arranged lengthwise in a mold for cold or hot pressing.

  • Publication number: 20120225236
    Abstract: An insulated building panel and building construction panel system utilizes a plurality of panels made of solid foam core with insulation R values, encapsulated within external hard coatings permanently bonded to the cores. The cores optimally consist of expanded polystyrene foam and the hard coatings are a polyurethane hard coat blend. Roof and exterior wall construction units utilize a plurality of adjacently aligned panels, each panel being located between support members and being compressed together and pressure-fitted against adjacent panels and support members such that each construction unit is formed from the compressed, pressure-fitted panels. The panels themselves serve as the primary structural elements and only insulating elements of the construction units.
