||WO||WO/2014/127396 - THE PHI BICYCLE CHAIN WHEEL||28.08.2014||
||PCT/AU2013/000171||LIM, Chong Leong||LIM, Chong Leong|
The invention alters the work ratio by alternating the leverage of the crank to counter the constantly changing leverage of the common chain wheel to maximize the cyclist's output. The cyclist's downward weight pressing down on the pedal propels a bicycle. We will call this the propulsion leverage. When pedals are in top and bottom position, the propulsion leverage is low. This invention reduces the disadvantage by reducing the chain wheel radius at this position. When pedals move forward, the propulsion leverage increases. The invention optimizes this increase in leverage by increasing the distance of the radius of the chain wheel. The shortest to longest radius in the invention has the golden ratio of 1.618 which fits the natural dimensions of the human body.

||PCT/AU2014/000140||GRAINS RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION||BERRY, Nicholas Kane|
A weed seed devitalization arrangement for use with a. combine harvester, attached to the combine harvester, towed behind, or standalone. The weed seed devitalization arrangement receives weed seeds entrained in a. portion of the air and material previously discharged from a combine harvester or other crop/lawn cutung apparatus. The weed seed devitalization arrangement includes a roton'stator arrangement including but not necessarily excluding other elements, one or more stationary subslantially circular array of weed seed impact members, the members being arranged so as to impact weed seeds being provided into the substantially circular array; and one or more rotatable substantially circular array of weed seed impact members, the rotatable array movable with respect to a stationary substantially circular array of weed seed impact members, the impact members of the rotatable substantially circular array arranged to impact weed seeds being directed through the rotatable substantially circular array. Another element may be a driven rotating clement at or near the central portion of the rotor/stator arrangement for receiving the portion of air and material discharged from the combine harvester entrained with weed seeds and for providing a flow of air and entrained material including weed seed into the arrays of the arrangement.

||PCT/AU2014/000162||BREAKAWAY INNOVATIONS PTY LTD||LONGMAN, David John|
A powermeter module (29) for a cycle crank arm includes a single cavity (320), (420) or double sided cavity/cavities (20) extending into the crank arm (12), (312), (412) and arranged to house electronics components (30) (,264), 364, (464) (motherboard) and power supply components (54) (,254) (,354) (,364) (powerboard). The powermeter electronics components are electrically connected to strain gauges (28a), (28b) e.g. by hard wires and/or plug and socket arrangement. The powermeter module components are housed in the crank arm and accessible by one or more covers (40), (48), (240), (248), (340), (348), (440), (448) for maintenance access. An associated crank arm (10) has a first cavity disposed towards a crank axis end (12) of the crank arm. A transition zone E of the crank arm material extends from either end of the cavity/cavities to provide a path for normalisation of forces passing to the strain gauge(s).

||PCT/AU2014/000131||JOHNSON, David Aaron||JOHNSON, David Aaron|
A damage detector for an acoustic liner sandwich of an internal cellular structure between a whole skin and a perforated skin comprises a cup shaped body the open end of which maintains sealing engagement with the perforated skin of the liner and a vacuum line connected to the body and a pressure gauge so that a loss of vacuum registered on the gauge indicates damage to the internal structure. The sealing engagement is achieved by locating a flexible annulus in a mating recess in the open end of the cup shaped body where the width of the annulus is between one and two maximum widths of the cells of the internal structure.
