  • Optimal Electrolyzer Design Assessment (2013) [Updated 9 years ago]

    This presentation highlights contributions by many to the field of the electrolysis of water and water based solutions after the initial quantitative documentation of this process, that was published by Michael Faraday in 1834. Today the dissociation of water to produce hydrogen and oxygen is of importance for developing a clean hydrogen fuel alternative to the coal and hydrocarbon fuels, that are not environmentally friendly. It is therefore crucial to substantially improve the hydrogen production gain to dissociate water and thus do it at a substantially reduced energy fraction of the direct current electrical energy required for the electrolyzer method as shown by Faraday. Since then at least four different technologies show that such a goal has been achieved. They are: Resonant acoustic dissociation, resonant pulsed current dissociation, microwave dissociation and catalytic dissociation.


  • Optimized New Alternative Energy Primer (2011) [Updated 1 decade ago]
    by Jan Peter Roos   read the paper:

    This paper reviews the progress in carbon alternative energy during the last four decades, since the first energy crisis appeared on the world stage in the early 1970s. In particular, it will examine promising technologies that are an order of magnitude larger in power density than solar, wind and hydro.


  • Geometry of a Magnetic Monopole (2000) [Updated 1 decade ago]

  • The Pressure of Magnetic Fields and the Minimum Energy Density of the Space-Time Continuum (1993) [Updated 1 decade ago]

    Bill Whamond has allowed ESJ to reprint this 1984 paper wherein the author raises some interesting questions about the interpretation of the magnetic field force and its dimensions.

  • Compressible Fluid Dynamics Study (1986) [Updated 5 years ago]
    by Jan Peter Roos, Cynthia Kolb Whitney   read the paper:

    The report includes the results of an investigation to identify. promising dynamic field-matter interactions with the scalar velocity potential of vacuum space by using the theory of compressible fluid dynamics. A two-dimensional fluid dynamic field-field interaction matrix of flow singularities was developed. Early in the study the analysis . was shifted from the fluid dynamic non-linear description towards the relativistic nonlinear description. Both deSCriptions were developed in parallel for the qualitative and quantitative determination of non-zero surface integrals. The investigation showed that a non-zero surface integral is to be found in the radiation reaction of a two-body system such as the hydrogen atom. Uncovering an error in the derivation of the Lienard-Wiechert potentials provides the theoretical basis for a mechanism to couple radiation energy from space into matter through rotational torque moments arising from non-linear retardation of the position of the radiation source. This principle will be applied in the construction of proof-of-principle experiments, proposed to be carried out in Phase II.

    The zero point quantum energy fluctuations that appear to explain the energy exchange are still considered by the investigators as a tentative solution for 0 process that can be better described by a theory with a new first principle n-dimensional fundamental framework of mathematical physics in which the presence of energy with a finite signal propagation speed is the first and only condition to develop the theory of relativity and quantum mechanics (see R. E. Var; "On a New Mathematical Framework for Fundamental Theoretical Physics", Foundations of Physics, Vol. 5, No.3., September 1975).

    Physicists have always believed that classical field-matter energy exchange is strictly one-way, fields receiving energy and matter losing it, via radiation. That belief is consistent with the accepted formulation for potentials created by relativistically moving sources. But that formulation has recently been shown to embed an error. Correction of the error allows reverse energy transfer, from fields to matter. Though previously unexpected, this mechanism becomes credible by offering a candidate explanation for certain otherwise mysterious natural phenomena.

    The mechanism behind the reverse energy transfer is relativistic torquing within any interacting multi-body system. The existence of relativistic torquing invites human intervention, to induce controlled energy transfer that can be tapped for human purposes such as propulsion. The design of an engineering system to demonstrate such a function on a laboratory scale is here discussed.

    In summary, the theoretical study of this Phase I effort positively identified one principle for energy extraction from the vacuum space energy density as that of relativistic torquing due to non-linear effects, brought about by retardation of time and position in the language of relativity, with nature's example of the hydrogen atom. Based on this principle two field-matter geometries are identified as promising candidates for Phase II proof-of-principle experimental testing. The expected result of this principle is non-rotational energy if the non-linear torquing energy can be made to exceed dissipative energy effects of the experiment itself.


  • Gravity as a Fluid Dynamic Concept (1967) [Updated 5 years ago]

    The Lorentz versus the Prandtl transformation; The authors curiosity was peaked when the term 1 - v2/c2 was encountered in the theory of compressible fluid dynamics as well as in the theory of relativity, making both theories nonlinear in the same context. That similarity would be a remarkable coincidence if we could not admit that both theories share a common origin.

    In the compressible fluid dynamics equation, "(1-kM2)1/2", k = heat capacity of the medium at constant pressure divided by the heat capacity of the medium at constant volume, and M = velocity v of the medium divided by the speed of sound c of the medium; v/c. In the Lorentz transformation of coordinates c is the speed of light. Regarding now the speed of light in its transmission through the vacuum of interstellar space as a limit speed, similarly as the speed of sound in air is determined by its pressure and mass density, we have at once defined the common ground, that allows us to calculate the other properties of the vacuum beyond c2 = 1/dielectric permittivity x magnetic susceptibility of the vacuum. The goal is to calculate the energy density of the vacuum within one order of magnitude between the near zero Joules/m3 of the cosmologists and the near infinity of the quantum theorists.
