A Control Architecture for Active Combustion Control in Conventional Diesel Engines
TS-037361 — A novel method to schedule diesel fueling parameters based on cylinder conditions.
For a diesel engine to produce a combustion process which results in a desired trade-off between emissions and fuel economy, the fuel injection parameters must account for the state of the air path system. This is typically accomplished by simultaneously determining the desired air path set point …

Method and Device to Monitor & Control Efficiency of the Friction Welding Process
TS-015293 — A device that can be readily attached to inertia or direct drive friction welding equipment to determine energy efficiency in-situ during welding, providing real-time feedback for improving control.
Friction welding is a category of solid-state welding processes that uses frictional heat generation at the weld interface to plasticize the work pieces and produce a metallurgical bond. The welding parameters used in large-scale industrial production are typically determined via trial and error. …

Vaporizing Metal Foil Explosion Welding
TS-014749 — A novel method that uses electrically vaporizing conductors to achieve explosion welding safely, efficiently, and in a factory environment.
Background Explosion welding (EXW) is a solid-phase process where welding is accomplished by accelerating one of the components at extremely high velocity through towards the other. Explosion welding can produce a bond between two dissimilar metals that typically cannot be welded together by other …
