Patent
Plascencia Jr., Ponzi and Arnold Air force Base | Date: 2015-03-25

A catheter for use with a suction source for removing excess fluid from a tissue treatment site has a catheter body, a distal section and a fluid evacuation path, where the distal section includes a multi-lumened member and at least one evacuation port, and the fluid evacuation path extends through a lumen in the multi-lumened member to provide suction communication between the suction source and the at least one evacuation port. The fluid evacuation path may also be configured for two-way flow, including distally and proximally along the catheter.

Arnold Engineering Development Complex (AEDC) is the most advanced and largest complex of flight simulation test facilities in the world. The center operates 43 aerodynamic and propulsion wind tunnels, rocket and turbine engine test cells, space environmental chambers, arc heaters, ballistic ranges and other specialized units. Over the years since these facilities have been operational, there have been a series of operational issues that have arisen involving compression system performance or the effect of compressor operability on facility performance or structural integrity. This paper presents three cases[1] where ground test facilities have experienced some form of compression system performance issue or a test article's abnormal operation such as surge cycles effect on facility structural or operational capability. In each case, the analysis engineer trying to figure out what might be the cause or the effect of these abnormal operations on facility operation is hampered by the lack of proper instrumentation that would provide insight into the issue. In these types of situation, it has been shown that some form of numerical simulation can provide great insight into possible causes and even suggest solutions to the observed anomaly. This paper highlights where a specific numerical simulation based upon one-dimensional physics and its application to parallel compressor theory has been applied to the analysis of three aerospace facility compression system issues.

The Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) will return to Houston, Texas, where it has been held annually since 1969 in May 2015. OTC is sponsored by 13 industry organizations and societies, of which SEG is one, which work cooperatively to develop the technical program each year. OTC is the world?s foremost event for development of offshore resources in drilling, exploration, production, and environmental protection. Advances in understanding the interfacial chemistry of oil in pores are leading to a suite of new enhanced oil-recovery technologies such as LoSal. These innovations are presented in the context of using ideas from other industries, fostering greater collaboration, and working development and deployment in tandem as critical Governors from several coastal states who have been leaders in the Outer Continental Shelf Governors Coalition will discuss the future of offshore energy production, assess the dialogue between the states and the federal government, and offer their visions of the future of offshore energy.steps to reducing turnaround times.

The Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) will be hosted in Houston, Texas, from 5-8 May, 2014. Silvia Peppoloni, National Group for the Defense against Earthquakes and the Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (Italy), will discuss the value of geoethics in joining humanistic and scientific visions as we search for socioeconomic solutions to practical problems that are compatible with respect of the environment and protection of nature and land. Jeffrey Immelt, chairman of the board and CEO, GE, will share his perspectives on the toughest challenges facing the global energy industry. He will give his views on the importance of rigorous policy and regulation, and the role of technology in driving growth and competitiveness. Geoscientists will also be interested in AAPG-sponsored technical sessions, including New Geophysical Approaches for Geohazard Consideration, Marine Archaeology and Environmental Studies in the Offshore Oil and Gas Industry, Petrotechnical Data Donation to Universities - Symposium on Results, and Underwater Monitoring Network: Strategy and Case Studies.
