Manganese compounds to inhibit both low-and high-temperature corrosion in utility and industrial furnace systems
Patent 8,257,450
The present invention relates to the reduction or inhibition of corrosion in an atmospheric burner unit by adding to a combustion system an effective amount of manganese, or a manganese precursor source, or derivative. The system may further include a catalyst package that may be composed of one or more individual organometallic compounds of Li, Na, K, Mg, Ca, Sr, Ba, Mo, Fe, Co, Pt, Ce, and combinations, mixtures or precursors thereof. The manganese component of the catalyst package of the present invention reduces or eliminates the poisoning of the combustion system, whereby improved combustion and reduced emissions result. In addition, this invention inhibits both high- and low-temperature corrosion that occurs on the hot surfaces of burner furnace walls and tubes, and on cooler surfaces of the burner unit exhaust stack.

Composite ballistic fabric structures for hard armor applications
Patent 8,256,019
A ballistic resistant composite material useful in rigid armor applications. The composite material includes at least one consolidated network of high tenacity fibers in a thermoplastic matrix material. The resin is a thermoplastic polyurethane resin that is semi-crystalline at room temperature. The high tenacity fibers have a tenacity of at least about 7 g/d. Prior to consolidation the polyurethane resin matrix material is in an aqueous medium. When dry, the polyurethane matrix material has a tensile modulus (at 100% elongation) of at least about 500 psi (3.45 MPa), a tensile modulus (at 300% elongation) of at least about 500 psi (3.45 MPa), and an ultimate tensile strength of at least about 2000 psi (13.78 MPa). The ballistic resistant composite material has improved ballistic properties.

Modularized airplane structures and methods
Patent 8,256,714
A modularized airplane includes two separably interconnected modules. A first module, incorporating substantial airplane styles, includes a fuselage portion and at least one wing or stabilizer with an associated control surface. A second module carries a set of essential flight components sufficing airplane operations, including propulsion unit, servo for moving control surface, and power source. Magnetic connectors affixed on the modules facilitate inter-modular structural connection. A control linkage assembly, linking control surface on first module and associated servo on second module, is formed with two portions longitudinally movable and separably connected by two magnetic connectors oppositely affixed on each portion. The structural connection and the servo-to-control surface linkage assembly facilitate substantially effortless inter-modular connections to form a functional airplane, as well as nondestructive inter-modular disconnection. The second module can be connected to different aerodynamic styled first modules to form airplanes for different applications, using same essential components.

System, method and program product for dynamically performing an audit and security compliance validation in an operating environment
Patent 8,261,354
A system, method and program product for dynamically performing an audit and security compliance validation. The method includes providing a tool for performing a compliance check of installed computer applications running on a system, the tool including a first set and a second set of plug-ins. Further, the method includes scanning the system, using plug-ins selected from the first set to obtain a current inventory of applications currently installed on the system and selecting plug-ins from the second set to be run on the system in response to the current inventory of applications obtained, and automatically running the plug-ins selected from the second set for performing the compliance check on the system in response to a scheduling criteria identified for the system, where the second set of plug-ins perform the compliance check for only the applications currently installed on the system.

System and method for dynamic allocation of virtual machines in a virtual server environment
Patent 8,261,268
A system and method for dynamically producing virtual machines (VMs) across a plurality of servers in the virtual server environment is provided. A single VM request queue is produced comprising VM requests for producing the plurality of VMs. A processing thread is produced and assigned for each server and retrieves VM requests from the VM request queue and produces VMs only on the assigned server according to the retrieved VM requests. Each processing thread may be configured for retrieving VM requests and producing VMs without any programmed delays, whereby the rate at which a processing thread produces VMs on its assigned server is a function of the performance capabilities of the assigned server. This dynamic allocation of VMs based on such a “natural selection” technique may provide an appropriately balanced allocation of VMs based on the performance capabilities of each server in the virtual server environment.

Composite structures for the absorption of dissolved metals
Patent 8,263,229
Irregularly shaped granules of a polymer capable of rapidly removing trace levels of toxic heavy metals from water, but posing high resistance to the flow of water, are trapped within interstitial spaces of a shape-retaining porous matrix of intercontacting fibers, forming a composite structure useful in on-the-run water remediations. The composite structure is produced by generating the granules within the matrix.
