||WO||WO/2014/124517 - METHOD OF UPGRADING HEAVY CRUDE OIL||21.08.2014||
||PCT/CA2013/050617||RIVAL TECHNOLOGIES INC.||OEHR, Klaus H.|
A method of upgrading a heavy crude oil (10) by thermally cracking (12) the heavy crude oil in a cracking vessel to convert a portion to volatile components (14) while simultaneously venting the volatile components from the cracking vessel. Tetrathydrofurfuryl alcohol is optionally added to the heavy crude oil feedstock before or during cracking. The vented volatile components are separated (16) into condensable volatile components (18) and non-condensable volatile components (20). The condensable components are collected and comprise cracked-distilled oil. The cracking residue (48) is removed from the cracking vessel and a cracking residue extract is prepared and mixed with the cracked-distilled oil to produce synthetic crude oil.

||PCT/CA2014/000106||MESPERE LIFESCIENCES INC.||CHENG, Xuefeng|
A device for non-invasively measuring at least one parameter of a cardiac blood vessel in a patient comprises at least one light source that directs light at a tissue site on the patient; at least one photodetector adapted to receive light emitted by the light source and generate an output based on the received light, the output of said photodetector being correlated with a parameter of the blood vessel; and at least one probe for facilitating delivery of light from the light source to the tissue site, and receipt of light by the photodetector. The device may include a height sensor to adapt it for use to determine central venous pressure, or the configuration of light source(s) and photodetector(s) may be adapted to permit the device to provide attenuation correction in the determination of venous blood oxygenation.

||PCT/CA2014/000114||CANADIAN SPACE AGENCY||JIANG, Xin Xiang|
A technique for controlling output of a shape memory alloy (SMA) actuator in the presence of fatigue involves a control system for selectively controlling a heater in dependence on a desired actuation of the SMA element, a monitored stress on the SMA actuator, and a monitored resistance of the SMA element, wherein the control system is adapted to compare an electrical resistance exhibited by the SMA element in an austenitic phase during a first actuation of the SMA actuator, with an electrical resistance of the SMA element in a recent austenitic phase to estimate a degree of fatigue. This estimate may be used to improve actuator replacement schedules, and may further be used to compensate for the effect of fatigue.
