In an embodiment a method of generating an erasure code for a network comprising a plurality of nodes, wherein the nodes of the network store data symbols and the number of data symbols stored on a first node of the network is different from the number of data symbols stored on a second node of the network, the erasure code indicating the dependance of parity symbols stored by the nodes of the network on the data symbols such that the data symbols stored on nodes of the network can be determined from parity symbols and data symbols stored on other nodes of the network, comprises determining from the distribution of data symbols among the nodes, an optimal parity symbol distribution;based on the optimal parity symbol distribution and the distribution of data symbols, selecting a code generation method; and generating the erasure code using the selected code generation method.
WO/2015/071621 METHOD OF WELDING FIRST AND SECOND METALLIC WORKPIECE WITH COLD OR THERMAL SPRAYING A LAYER OF WELD MODIFYING MATERIAL TO ONE OF THE SURFACES||WO||21.05.2015|
||PCT/GB2013/053004||THE WELDING INSTITUTE||MITCHELL, Timothy Phillip|
A method is disclosed of welding first and second metallic workpieces (1, 3) together. A layer of weld modifying material (4) is applied to a surface of one or each of the first and second metallic workpieces (1, 3) using a cold spraying or thermal spraying process (4). The first and second metallic workpieces (1, 3) are then welded together such that the weld modifying material (4) is incorporated into the weld (6).

||PCT/GB2014/053074||CAMBRIDGE NANOTHERM LIMITED||SHASHKOV, Pavel|
Metal substrate comprising a metallic layer (11) and a conductive via (15) extending through the metallic layer. The conductive via is electrically insulated from the metal substrate with a dielectric nanoceramic layer (12) and provides electrical and/or thermal connection to opposite sides of the metallic layer. Such metal substrates may be used as substrates to support power, microwave, optoelectronic, solid-state lighting and thermoelectric devices. The dielectric nanoceramic layer has a crystalline structure consisting of substantially equiaxed grains having an average grain size of 100 nanometres or less, a thickness of between 1 micrometre and 50 micrometres, a dielectric strength of greater than 20 KV mm-and a thermal conductivity of greater than 3 W/mK.

||PCT/GB2014/053063||UNIVERSITY OF DUNDEE||ANASTASOPOULOS, Ioannis|
A foundation for an offshore structure comprises a footing for mounting on the floor a body of water and a pile for insertion into the floor of the body of water. The pile extends at least partially through the footing. The footing is free to move in the vertical direction around the pile while maintaining an effective engagement with the pile in the lateral direction.

||PCT/GB2014/053073||CAMBRIDGE NANOTHERM LIMITED||SHASHKOV, Pavel|
A flexible electronic substrate (FES) comprises a metallic layer, a dielectric nanoceramic layer formed by oxidation of a surface of the metallic layer, and an electrical circuit formed on a surface of the dielectric layer. The FES may be used for supporting a device, for example a flexible display, an OLED, an optoelectronic device, or a rf device. The dielectric nanoceramic layer has a crystalline structure consisting of substantially equiaxed grains having an average grain size of 100 nanometres or less, a thickness of between 1 micrometre and 50 micrometres, a dielectric strength of greater than 20 KV mm-1, and a thermal conductivity of greater than 3 W/mK. The FES has a minimum bend radius of lower than 25 cm.

A process for the production of a target polypeptide is provided. The process comprises expressing an expression cassette for the target recombinant polypeptide comprised in a vector in a non-mammalian host, wherein the host is auxotrophic for methionine and lacks the ability to express functional chromosomal Vitamin B12 independent homocysteine methyltransferase. The vector comprises an expression cassette for functional Vitamin B12 independent homocysteine methyltransferase and the host is cultured in a growth medium lacking methionine.

A BAS plow (400) creates a V-trench (501, 511, 521) along the linear route of a pipeline path and an instrumented bottle moving with the BAS plow (400) collects BAS data indicative of the pitch, roll, heading, yaw, three dimensional positioning, speed and depth of the chassis (10), the shearing force applied to the seabed material and the applied tow force. The bottle (470) can be swapped to collect the acquired data or an umbilical can be used to provide a real time stream of data. The Bas plow (400) can simultaneously backfill the created trench (501), (511), (521) leaving an undisrupted seabed, or the pipeline can be laid in the BAS trench, which can also be made deeper and wider by additional trench cutting passes, significantly reducing the total time required for combined BAS and pipeline laying processes. The BAS plow (400) can be released and retrieved over-the- stern of a towing vessel (V).
