Abstract

Provided is an air intake structure for an internal combustion engine, said structure having a single air intake variable flow rate valve 75, 175 that changes the air intake flow rate in an air intake flow passage 80, 180, 280, and a partition 81, 181, 281 that divides a tumble flow passage 80A, 180A, 280A and a main flow passage 80B, 180B, 280B. The air intake variable flow rate valve 75, 175 has a tumble flow passage-side blocking valve part 77b, 177b, 200b, 201b, 202b, 203b that blocks only the side having the tumble flow passage 80A, 180A. As an opening 83, 183, 283 of the main flow passage 80B, 180B, 280B increases, the tumble flow passage-side blocking valve part 77b, 177b shrinks an opening 82, 182, 282 on the side having the tumble flow passage 80A, 180A, 280A. When the amount of intake air in the main flow passage is increased, the amount of intake air flowing in the side having the tumble flow passage 80B, 180B, 280B is reduced. A reduction in the amount of intake air conducted into a combustion chamber 36 is inhibited due to interference of flow in the two flow passages. A tumble valve is unnecessary, thus suppressing increases in the number of parts and increases in cost.

Abstract

In a steer-by-wire steering system for a vehicle, a control unit (16) controls an operation of a steering actuator to cause the steered angle of wheels to be in a prescribed relationship to a steering angle, and an operation of the reaction force actuator (15) including a pair of reaction force motors (14) to cause the reaction force to be a value (Tt) corresponding to a steered state of the wheels, wherein the control unit is provided with a failure detection unit (36) configured to detect failures of the reaction force motors, and upon detecting a failure of one of the reaction force motors, progressively reduce an output (Tta) of the other reaction motor to a prescribed limit value (TL).

Abstract

An active noise control device (10) controls a speaker (18) on the basis of an error signal outputted from a detector (32) that has detected, at a control point, a synthesized sound of a noise transmitted from a vibration source and a cancellation sound outputted from the speaker (18) in order to cancel out the noise, and is provided with a control signal generation unit (62) that generates a control signal for controlling the speaker (18) by performing signal processing on a reference signal by a control filter corresponding to an error signal buffered at the end of an input buffer (72) for buffering error signals (e) on a time-series basis.

Abstract

In an acquisition step of this method for culturing microalgae, a protein is obtained from microalgae cultured in a culture step. In a saccharification step, the protein obtained in the acquisition step is added as a saccharifying enzyme to a pressing residue that contains cellulose and that is obtained by pressing a biomass material, and the pressing residue is saccharified. In a fermentation step, a sugar obtained in the saccharification step and/or a sugar contained in pressed juice obtained by pressing the biomass material is fermented to produce a fermented product. In a culture step, carbon dioxide generated in the fermentation step is supplied to the microalgae.
