|PCT/CH2013/000031||AMMANN SCHWEIZ AG||TROX, Uwe|
The invention relates to a method for heating a paver screed (10) equipped with a heating device. The heating device has electric heating elements (2) which are supplied with an electric current by means of a current generator (1) in order to generate the heat. The electric voltage (U) which is supplied to the heating elements (2) is changed in order to change the heating output of the heating device. The electric voltage applied to the respective heating element (2) is thus increased or decreased in order to control or regulate the heating output. In this manner, an energy-efficient operation is made possible, and the service life of the heating elements (2) as well as of the generator (1) can be substantially increased. The motor which drives the generator (1) is likewise spared, and fuel is also saved when using an internal combustion engine, for example a diesel engine.

The invention relates to a method for producing an acceleration sensor having a housing (1), which has a cylindrical or cubic basic shape, having at least one internal support (4) and having a sensor element (2) arranged thereon. According to the invention a sensor element (2) comprising a main body (29) having a head part (21) and an end face (24) opposing said head part (21) is premounted, by surrounding the head part (21) with at least one piezoelectric measuring element (23), a seismic composition (22) and a clamping ring (27). The end face (24) is subsequently positioned on the inner support (4) of the housing (1) in contact therewith to form a contact zone (7) between the end face (24) and the support (4). Finally, the sensor element (2) is welded in this contact zone (7) to the housing (1). The invention further relates to an acceleration sensor produced using said method.

||PCT/CH2014/000012||HANASOGE, Shravan||HANASOGE, Shravan|
According to a first preferred embodiment of the present invention, there is provided an efficient method of computing synthetic wavefields. In the preferred arrangement, wavefields are computed by means of the Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM) by increasing the number of degrees of freedom to be greater than the order of the lattice. This new degree of freedom is referred to as colour. Thus, particles in the present invention are fully defined by position, speed, direction and colour. In a preferred embodiment, the present invention is used to image of seismic or electromagnetic wavefield data through forward propagating and back propagating source and receiver wavefields followed by applying an imaging condition. In another preferred embodiment, the present invention is used to invert seismic or electromagnetic wavefield data through an iterative scheme where the difference between modelled and recorded data is minimized by updating an Earth model until the misfit is sufficiently small.
