Firstly, an original pattern of an evaporative pattern is formed by machining an evaporative material block. The original pattern includes a three-dimensional mesh strucutre including a plurality of bar-shaped parts and connecting points that connect ends of the barshaped parts and are distributed in a threedimensional space, and a plurality of block parts having fixed relative positional relationship by being fixed to the three-dimensional mesh structure. Then, at least a portion of at least one or more of the barshaped parts composing the original pattern is removed, and replaced with a tube member. Then, a full-mold casting is performed by using the evaporative pattern having the replaced tube member. Positional relationship of the block parts in which surfaces, etc. necessary for the metal mold are formed is fixed by the three-dimensional mesh structure, and the necessary rigidity is secured. The metal mold is made lighter by using the threedimensional mesh structure. Due to the replacement with the tube member, an amount of gas generated upon the full-mold casting is suppressed, and a decrease in casting quality is prevented.

PATENT JOURNAL 54: METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR DETERMINING COLOUR FROM AN IMAGE 00: Embodiments of the invention relate to the determination of the colour of a colour sample from an image of the colour sample. In one embodiment a colour sample capture card is provided having printed thereon colour samples of known colour (for example, XYZ tri-stimulus values). An image of the test colour sample is then captured using domestically available equipment, such as a consumer digital camera or camera-equipped mobile telephone, the image also containing the colour sample capture card. In one embodiment the image is then transmitted to a remote colour determination service for colour sample colour determination. Regression analysis is then performed using the RGB colour samples in the image and known XYZ colours thereof to characterise the colour capture response of the image capture device. Having characterised the image capture device the XYZ colour of the unknown colour sample can be determined from the RGB colour thereof in the image. Knowing the XYZ colour, the colour can then be matched to a palette of paint colours, to determine a paint colour to match the unknown colour.

Liquid feedstock (e.g., water and/or hydrocarbons mixed with biomass) is pumped through a pipeline; the single-phase stream is then transformed into a biphasic liquid-and-gas stream inside a chamber. The transformation is achieved by transitioning the stream from a high pressure zone to a lower-pressure zone. The pressure drop may occur when the stream further passes through a device for atomizing liquid. Inside the chamber, an electric field is generated with an intensity level that exceeds the threshold of breakdown voltage of the biphasic medium leading to a generation of a plasma state. Furthermore, the invention provides an energy-efficient highly adaptable and versatile method and apparatus for sanitizing water using plasma particles to inactivate biological agents contaminating water.

The column adjustment process uses multiple threads to determine overall maximum column widths for each column in a set of target columns in a spreadsheet table. For each of the target columns, the overall maximum column width for the target column is based on the width of the widest textual representation of a value in any cell in the column. The set of target columns includes at least one column. The computing system then reflows the spreadsheet table such that each column in the set of target columns has a width based on the overall maximum column width for the column. A similar process is performed to adjust the height of rows.

PATENT JOURNAL 54: METHOD FOR DECREASING SPASTIC WING ACTIVITY OF POULTRY DURING SLAUGHTER 00: The present disclosure generally relates to a method for humanely stunning and slaughtering poultry, and more particularly to a method for decreasing the spastic wing activity of poultry during slaughter. In particular, the birds are placed into a sealed chamber and the pressure in the chamber is reduced at a continuous rate to a target decompression pressure. The low atmospheric pressure slaughter is more humane than traditional slaughter techniques and results in less spastic wing activity.

00: A method for generating synthesis gas by gasification of solid or liquid carbonaceous fuels with an oxygen-containing oxidizing agent in a reactor, wherein the synthesis gas is removed from the reactor overhead and the mineral ash/slag droplets produced during the reaction are removed from the reactor downwards in the direction of gravity, is intended to make it possible to use a markedly less expensive fire-tube boiler for heat removal instead of a radiant boiler. This is achieved in that the synthesis gas is passed uncooled over a hot gas filter (2) and subsequently for cooling through a firetube boiler (3), wherein the ash/slag particles separated off at the hot gas filter (2) are recirculated in the direction of gravity back to the gasification reactor (2).
