Embodiments are directed to radiopaque implantable structures (e.g., stents) formed of cobalt-based alloys that comprise cobalt, chromium and one or more platinum group metals, refractory metals, precious metals, or combinations thereof. Platinum group metals include platinum, palladium, ruthenium, ...

James W Skinner, Jimmy D Gamble, Robert R Slocum, John M Kaczmarczyk: Manhole base assembly with internal liner and method of manufacturing same. Press Seal Corporation, Faegre Baker Daniels, April 11, 2017: US09617722

A manhole base assembly and a method for making the same, in which a non-cylindrical, low-volume concrete base is fully lined to protect the concrete against chemical and physical attack while in service. This lined concrete manhole base assembly may be readily produced using a modular manhole form ...

Michael A Riley, Michael A Spohn, Gerald W Callan: Method and apparatus for fractional flow reserve measurements. BAYER HEALTHCARE, Joseph L Kent, David Schramm, James R Stevenson, April 11, 2017: US09615755

A method of determining fractional flow reserve (FFR) in a blood vessel having stenosis includes injecting fluid into the blood vessel upstream of the stenosis using a power fluid injector, measuring pressure drop across the stenosis, and calculating FFR from measured pressure drop. The injected flu ...

Ashish M Sukhadia, Max P McDaniel, Errun Ding, Guylaine St Jean, Qing Yang, Daniel G Hert, Chung Ching Tso: Low density polyolefin resins with low molecular weight and high molecular weight components, and films made therefrom. Chevron Phillips Chemical Company, Merchant & Gould P C, March 28, 2017: US09605097

Disclosed herein are ethylene-based polymers produced using dual metallocene catalyst systems. These polymers have low densities, high molecular weights, and broad molecular weight distributions, as well as having the majority of the long chain branches in the lower molecular weight component of the ...

Jeff F Greco, Qing Yang, Vivek Rohatgi, Mark L Hlavinka, Jim B Askew: Methods for controlling die swell in dual catalyst olefin polymerization systems. Chevron Phillips Chemical Company, Merchant & Gould P C, May 16, 2017: US09650459

Methods for controlling the die swell of an olefin polymer produced using a dual catalyst system are disclosed. The die swell of the olefin polymer can be increased or decreased as a function of the catalyst weight ratio and the reactant molar ratio used during the olefin polymerization process.

Mark L Hlavinka, Errun Ding, Paul DesLauriers, Yongwoo Inn, Lili Cui, Qing Yang, Ashish M Sukhadia, Guylaine St Jean, Richard M Buck: Higher density polyolefins with improved stress crack resistance. Chevron Phillips Chemical Company, Merchant & Gould P C, March 28, 2017: US09605100

Disclosed herein are polymerization processes for the production of olefin polymers. These polymerization processes can employ a catalyst system containing two or three metallocene components, resulting in ethylene-based copolymers that can have a medium density and improved stress crack resistance.
