Patent
CBJ Hong Kong Ocean Engineering Ltd and University of Sao Paulo | Date: 2017-01-18

Provided is a method of installing and constructing a hollow cylindrical pier for fixing an offshore platform structure to the bed, wherein a steel cylinder (101) with an inner diameter slightly greater than the hollow cylindrical pier is driven into the bed (2) until at least the bearing stratum is reached to ensure fixing, and part of the steel cylinder (101) is exposed above the water surface (1); draining ponding inside the steel cylinder (101), and excavating bed sediment inside the steel cylinder (101); cutting off the steel cylinder (101); hoisting a first hollow cylindrical pier section (1A) with a sealed bottom end vertically downwards from the water surface (1) towards the steel cylinder (101), pre-tensioning an overlapping hollow cylindrical pier section on the hollow cylindrical pier section via a shear key structure and then fixedly connecting same with the previous hollow cylindrical pier section, and hoisting same in turn such that after the sealed bottom end of the first hollow cylindrical pier section (1A) reaches near the bottom end of steel cylinder (101), at least part of the lastly hoisted overlapping hollow cylindrical pier section is exposed above the water surface (1); and pouring concrete (107) into a gap between the steel cylinder (101) and the hollow cylindrical piers. Further provided are a method of installing and constructing an offshore platform structure and a hollow cylindrical pier for fixing to the bed and an offshore platform structure.

A method, system, and apparatus, including a program encoded on computer-readable medium, for downloading media content files to mobile devices includes downloading media files from local storage on a kiosk to a mobile device over a high-speed wireless communication link using an application on the mobile device. A message can be sent to the mobile device to provide notification of a proximity of the device to a kiosk when a location of the device satisfies predetermined criteria associated with a location of the kiosk, and a download can be initiated after authenticating the device. In addition, a battery charging service for charging the mobile device can be authorized through a charging port of a charging station in response to detecting the installed application on the mobile device. A file can be downloaded from a particular solid state drive in accordance with a file system detected for the device.

A software application executing on a server and communicating with an agent in a wireless access point predicts a type of a computing device wirelessly connected via a radio frequency link to the wireless access point. The application receives an indication of a model of the computing device from the wireless access point, and further receives one or more characteristics of the computing device from the wireless access point. The application then predicts the type of the computing device associated with the one or more of the indication of the model, and characteristics, of the computing device.

The invention provides methods implemented in an electronic portable device for retrieving information from printed documents and generating highly accurate accountancy forms ready for further processing for presentation to tax authorities. The final information is visualized for the user to validate and utilize. By means of external communication, further added value is provided by web services server means, database, document repository, and web portal. The printed documents are captured by the camera of an electronic portable device, such as a smartphone, and the algorithms of the invention applied to the captured image in order to extract and generate the final accountancy relevant information. Hence the direct dump of data present on printed documents is enabled in order to use that data to fill formatted forms or documents, so the user can easily fill forms, more specifically tax or financial forms, in a direct way.


Disclosed are a semi-submersible raft wind power generation unit and a construction method therefor. The raft wind power generation unit includes at least three floaters (12) and at least three wind turbines (21) configured to be placed on the floaters (12). The raft is configured to turn about a vertical axis and be fixed to a seabed (2) by a mooring line (36). A force resultant from an incoming wind load passes closely around the center of geometry of the raft, which is a distance away from the center of rotation of the raft so that a yaw moment about the center of rotation is created that rotates the raft until the force resultant passes through the center of geometry and center of rotation.

The present invention relates to a fabric comprising a fabric substrate made up of two yarns (1, 2) woven with one another, and a third yarn (3) oriented in the vertical direction of manufacture of the fabric substrate, which third yarn (3) is not part of the fabric substrate (1, 2) and is anchored to said fabric substrate in several stitching points or points spaced from one another by a varying degree in at least said vertical direction of manufacture, said third yarn (3) being loose between the points for anchoring to the fabric substrate (1, 2), making up on one of the faces of the fabric substrate (1, 2) several float stitches of any predetermined length. The invention includes a method of manufacture of the mentioned fabric with float stitch.

Interlaced tubing elements form a conic spiral shaped heat exchange element/ The tubing elements are tilted while being helically wound, forming a substantially overall conic spiral structure having a central longitudinal axis. Tubing elements are tilted with respect to the central longitudinal axis, and may be continuously tilted or variably tilted. A heat exchange element is formed by a continuous tubing element that spirals around a central longitudinal axis, or by several interlaced tubing elements that are spaced adjacent to each other in a conic spiral shape. The tubing elements may have a plurality of fins on at least one of the outer surfaces or first and/or second side wall.


The invention relates to a device for displaying images on surfaces of anatomical models, and a method for projecting images onto to-scale anatomical models, allowing medical professionals and patients to observe the effects of a particular surgical procedure, or the effects of the passage of time, on a part of the body. In addition, the invention can be used in the field of forensic and anthropological reconstruction for the recognition of people or living beings without them being present.
