Re: Aviation Week on the Lockheed Skunkworks CFR

I like it. I see 5 coils making 2 pairs of cusps with their equatorial loss planes bent & joined together so that none of the field lines lead to the outside. Then I see 2 coils helping bend the end-most loss plane over to meet its partner. Then I see the 2 end coils squeezing down on the axial ...

Re: New Post is up.

Awesome!
Thank You!

We always knew that joule heating would be a major problem.

Yes, Inventor has a much better 3D interface. But, it still sucks when dealing with non-rectilinear 3D stuff. The part I really like is that I can drive the parameters from an excel file, so after the model is done I can change the sizes of the features, like thickness & bend radius. I use the A...

Sweet! Thank You RJ for taking up the slack. I had to stop when my new job started taking up all my time My original inspiration for the one-pass coils was the bent copper tubing coils with water flowing through them that I used to make for high powered induction furnaces. They handle huge currents...

This is an important number to nail down. I got partway there with the numerical model I was building based on Kiteman's work. But, new job has sucked up all time that might have gone into it for many months now. Sorry. I think that this problem would be relatively easy to model ( at much lower curr...

In and near Gallup NM where I lived for a while there are coal mines and uranium mines near each other.
The local miners said that the rock layers containing coal and uranium were very closely related geologically.

Ummm
Maybe I'm being obtuse but...

The grid is positive.
The electrons are attracted to it and neutralize this charge.
This returns energy to the system how?

The details of the X-Cusp field above were done on a planar model ie 2D. I am now working on modeling it in 3D. Kiteman thought it would squeeze the field tighter inside the sphere of the Magrid and avoid field nulls at some distance inside the Magrid. Here is where I am on the 3D Bfield model of th...

Could FAMULUS get funding (and a degree on the side) by finding a university and professor to take him and his project under his wing as a thesis project? What he is doing is masters degree level work at the very least. The level of enthusiasm shown is seldom seen and a big selling point. One advant...

Warning! Speculation Ahead! The positive and negative possibilities are mind boggling. Fortunately the long development time will give us some time to consider them. We're probably looking at the end of the century time frame. Peta Hz clock rates. Molecular scale memory storage units. Who writes the...

Wunderjahr?

WunderJahr 2010? The 2/27/2010 Issue of Science News blew me away. It may go down as being as pivotal as the 1905 issue 17 of Annalen der Physik. The exception is that the discoveries are presented by different groups. 1. A working quantum computer is announced. (It calculated correct hydrogen elect...
