Page 95 - This invention is a panel for selectively absorbing solar thermal energy comprising a metallic substrate, and a solar thermal energy absorbing coating carried on the bright metallic material. A layer of zinc is interposed between the metal substrate and the layer of bright material or the metallic substrate can be anodized for receiving the layer of bright metallic material. Also disclosed is the method for producing the coating which selectively absorbs solar thermal energy.
Page ii - Licenses will be individually negotiated and may be granted to any applicant, foreign or domestic, on a nonexclusive or exclusive basis for royalties or other considerations and on such other terms and conditions as are deemed appropriate to the interests of the United States. Preference in the granting of foreign license rights will be shown to those applicants who have previously been granted a license under the corresponding US patent or patent application.
Page 40 - ... separation of the boundary layer due to shock wave formulation at high subsonic speeds well above the critical Mach number. A highly cambered trailing edge section improves overall airfoil lifting efficiency.
Page 68 - ... the operative site and a first pump is provided to evacuate macerated material and treatment fluid from the eye. The rotating member may be disposed in a support tube having an aperture and communication with the first pump to provide for discharge of the macerated material and used treatment fluid A second pump means is provided on the rotating member to provide a counter flow of treatment fluid into the space between the rotating member and the support tube The second pump may provide additional...

Page 67 - A heat transfer assembly for conducting thermal energy includes a hermetically sealed container enclosing a quantity of inert gas such as nitrogen. Two opposed walls of the container have high thermal conducting characteristics while the connecting walls have low thermal conducting characteristics. Electrodes are positioned adjacent the high thermal conducting walls and biased relative to the conducting walls to a corona potential for creating an ionic gas wind which must contact the conducting walls...
