WO/2015/109355 LOCKING NUT AND WASHER||WO||30.07.2015|
||PCT/AU2014/001042||ARCHER, Kenneth, Maxwell||ARCHER, Kenneth, Maxwell|
A locking nut (10) and washer (12) for use with a threaded bolt. The locking nut (10) has a tool engaging portion (14), a threaded aperture (20), and a washer engaging portion (18). The washer (12) has a locking nut engaging portion (28, 36) and an aperture (32). When the washer engaging portion (18) engages the locking nut engaging portion (28, 36), the threaded aperture (20) and the aperture (32) align to be at least substantially concentric so as to receive the threaded bolt. In this manner, when the tool engaging portion (14) is appropriately manipulated to force the locking nut (10) in a first direction along the threaded bolt, the engagement between the tool engaging portion (14) and the Socking nut engaging portion (28, 36) also causes the washer (12) to move along the threaded bolt in the same direction.

WO/2015/109357 PHASE CUTTING CONTROLLED DIMMER ARRANGEMENT WITH OVER-CURRENT PROTECTION WHEN POWERING A LAMP||WO||30.07.2015|
||PCT/AU2015/000020||HENDON SEMICONDUCTORS PTY LTD||TRACY, Philip|
A phase cutting controlled dimmer arrangement with over-current protection including load control for back-to-back FETs or IGBTs with connected gates. There is a current sensing resistor that provides a first and second voltage. A first transistor has an electrical pathway to the second voltage and a second transistor has an electrical pathway to the first voltage such that when the second or first voltages exceeds a threshold voltage, this is commensurate with an over- current event of the back-to-back FETs or IGBTs, triggering the first or second transistor into conduction wherein conduction of the first or second transistors provides a means to turn OFF the back-to-back FETs or IGBTs thereby withdrawing power to the load.
WO/2015/109358 A SYSTEM AND A METHOD FOR PROCESSING A REQUEST ABOUT A PHYSICAL LOCATION FOR A BUILDING ITEM OR BUILDING INFRASTRUCTURE||WO||30.07.2015|
||PCT/AU2015/000022||TTE NOMINEES PTY LTD||O'KANE, Diarmuid|
Described herein is a system and method for processing a request about a physical location for a building item or building infrastructure. One embodiment provides a system (1) including a mobile telephone handset (3) having an inbuilt Global Positioning System (GPS) module (7). Handset (3) is adapted to wirelessly transmit a first signal (17) indicative of the longitude, latitude and elevation/depth of handset (3), as well as the request about a physical location for building items and/or building infrastructure to a central server (19). Server (19) is located remotely from handset (3) and is responsive to first signal (17) for accessing at least one record, such as a two or three dimensional digitised building plan, in a database (21) and generating a second signal (23). Second signal (23) is wirelessly transmitted to handset (3), which is responsive to second signal (23) for displaying to a user predetermined information indicative of the physical location relative to the handset position.

||PCT/AU2015/000025||RMIT UNIVERSITY||XIE, Yi, Min|
A structured porous metamaterial comprising a three-dimensional matrix of at least one repeating base unit, the matrix formed from an array of at least eight base units, each base unit comprising a platonic solid including at least one shaped void, wherein each base unit has void geometry tailored to provide a porosity of between 0.3 and 0.97; and provide the metamaterial with a response comprising at least one of a Poisson's ratio of 0 to -0.5 when under tension and compression; or negative linear compression (NLC), negative area compression (NAC), zero linear compression (ZLC), or zero area compression (ZAC) behaviour when under pressure.
WO/2015/109364 FLUID PULSE APPARATUS||WO||30.07.2015|
||PCT/AU2015/000032||H.P.H.T DRILLING TOOLS PTY LTD||KETTELS, Trevor David|
A fluid pulse apparatus for down hole drilling having a turbine assembly actuated by a flow of drilling fluid. The apparatus has a narrowed fluid flow section that cooperates with a piston that moves between an open a fluid flow restricting position. The apparatus has a turbine assembly that rotates in response to a flow of drilling fluid. The turbine apparatus has upper and lower cam surfaces that cooperate with fixed cam followers such that rotation of the turbine assembly and cam action between the cam surfaces and the fixed followers causes the turbine assembly to reciprocate axially. The piston is fixed to either of the upper or the lower cam surface such that as the turbine assembly reciprocates axially, the piston moves between the open and the flow restricting positions to create a pulsed fluid flow.
WO/2015/109361 WEAR TILES||WO||30.07.2015|
||PCT/AU2015/000029||DT-HILOAD AUSTRALIA PTY LTD||DAWSON, Barry|

The tiled floor area includes (a) a plurality of tiles (3) formed from a wear resistant tough material arranged in a pattern on the tiled floor area and (b) fines of material transported on the tray in use of the tray covering exposed floor areas of the tiled floor area. The shape of the tiles (3) and the pattern of the tiles are selected so that the fines form protective layers of wear resistant material in the exposed areas of the tiled area. One embodiment of the tile has an hexagonal shape and has a key-hole shaped hole in the tile.
