Innovative method for creep-rupture life prediction for high-temperature metallic materials

The method uses a unique algorithmic approach, in contrast with traditional methodologies (Larson-Miller Parameter and similar time-temperature parameters based on the theory of thermo-activated processes), it uses an innovative nonlinear damage summation model along with a program product for its computational realization. The method provides reliable CRL predictions that exceed the maximum test time by approximately two orders of magnitude.

PIPELINE INSPECTION GAUGE (PIG) ALERT SYSTEM

The pipeline inspection gauge (PIG) alert system provides a method and apparatus for effectively locating a pipeline inspection gauge (PIG) as it traverses a pipeline. The method and apparatus incorporates hollow, empty tubes spaced along the length of the pipeline. The tubes are provided with lower ends that extend into the pipeline. The tubes are closed at their lower ends and connectable to respective pressure detection devices or the like at their upper ends. When a PIG passes through the pipeline, it contacts the lower end of the tube that extends into the pipeline, causing the tube to break, and thus opening the interior of the tube to the pressurized flow of the product flowing in the pipeline. The change in pressure is registered by the pressure detection device to indicate the passage of the PIG.

Building heat exchange system US8955764B1

The building heat exchange system is suited for installation in areas having warmer seasonal climates. The system can include an external solar heated water supply, and an indoor water heater. An enclosure extends around the water heater, with indoor air flowing between the enclosure and water heater to a duct for distribution. During cooler conditions the water heater heats incoming water from the relatively cool external water supply, with the warmth of the water heater warming the air for distribution into the bathroom or other area as desired. In warmer times, the water supplied from the w
