|PCT/NZ2014/000058||LAKE PRODUCTS LIMITED||HAYNES, Andrew Leo|
A device for filling or creating a void within a construction medium. The device has a body having at least one inflatable body portion. Each inflatable body portion has one or more inflatable cavities. There is at least one valve member fluidly connected to the one or more inflatable cavity to control flow of fluid into and inflate said cavity. In-use, the one or more cavities are shaped to substantially fill or create the void in a construction medium when in an inflated state.

The present application invention relates to the control of electromagnetic fields. It has particular relevance to magnetic flux coupling apparatus such as inductive power transfer pads for wireless power transfer systems. There is provided a magnetic flux coupling apparatus comprising a coil for generating or receiving magnetic coupling flux and a leakage flux element comprising material of a relatively high magnetic permeability. The leakage flux element is separated from the coil by a region of relatively low magnetic permeability and positioned to provide a controlled path for leakage flux independent of coupling flux. There is provided an electromagnetic wave absorber comprising a high permeability magnetic material arranged in a first layer; and a conductive or low permeability material arranged in a second layer.
