Biefeld-Brown effect is not understood. The order of magnitude of the net force on the asymmetric capacitor is estimated assuming two different mechanisms of. PDF | The Biefeld-Brown is a fascinating effect with which levitation can be reached without moving or rotating elements. Static voltage is. Biefeld-Brown effect Lifter. «on: 03/15/ AM». Has anyone heard of (or even built) one of these asymmetrical capacitor “Lifters”. I just saw a story on it.

It is likely that the reason for this is that at very low pressures, only experiments which used very large voltages produced positive results, as a product of a greater chance biefeod ionization of the extremely limited number of available air molecules, and a greater force from each ion from Coulomb’s Law; experiments which used lower voltages have a lower chance of ionization and a lower force per ion.
He called it an “ionocraft”.
Biefeld–Brown effect – Wikipedia
How does that impact the mass flow? Feigel next used his theoretical tools to analyze the momentum inside a material placed in strong, perpendicular electric and magnetic fields. The “Biefeld—Brown effect” was the name given to a phenomenon observed by Thomas Townsend Brown while he was experimenting with X-ray tubes during the s while he was still in high school.
So, with abalative laser propulsion, you can bidfeld a SSTO LV and your major vehicle costs is the laser system on the ground which, unlike bifeeld reusable LV systems, dosn’t have to be fished out the ocean By continuing to use this website, you agree to their use. A light balsa frame, aluminum foil, some wires, and biefrld, volts will make a levitating model craft for which no clear explanation exists for that behavior. TO suggest they work in a near vacuum, tut tut.
Whether this increases or decreases the maximum momentum of efffect ionized air is not typically measured, although the force acting upon the electrodes reduces, until the glow discharge region is entered.
Unlike the Casimir effect, which is insensitive to the ultraviolet cut-off needed to make summations and integrals converge, this new effect depends critically upon high-frequency and is, in this sense, more like the Lamb shift. You are commenting using your Facebook account.
Townsend Brown, – Tanglewood Books, Chapter Inhomogenous field is produced by applying dc bias between a horizontal flat electrode and the tip of a conical bottom electrode of an electrostatic capacitor. If the electric field pointed up and the magnetic field pointed north, then virtual photons of a given energy traveling east would have a different momentum from those traveling west.
The effect is generally believed to rely on corona dischargewhich allows air molecules to become ionized near sharp points and edges. Additionally, I wonder how it compares to closed case ion drives, lets say if you injected some propellant into the electrostatic field But at one g in egfect near vacuum there won’t be he mass flow for one of these to fly, that’s what I was complaning about AS for the magnetoplasma sail I think it’s a great idea but is there a superconductor with a high enough H c avaiable?
American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. Patent 3, — was efffct to G.
There is even a limit to its thrust effectiveness: Built the HV power supply biefele plans and parts from Information Unlimited, and rigged it up with a joystick so it was maneuverable around the room though it had an umbilical for the power. Today, the Internet is filled with sites devoted to this interpretation of the effect.
Part IV of the Holiday Serial”. The vacuum outside the plates thus has more energy, so it squeezes the plates together. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here The back-action follows from changes in momentum of quantum vacuum fluctuations zero-point energygenerated in magneto-electric materials. Look its this simple: Air Force researcher R.
VP of International Spaceflight Museum – http: Based on an analysis of experimental data taken on the Biefeld-Brown effect, a case is made for describing this effect as a secondary brosn effect related to the global electric field.
Below the glow discharge region, the breakdown voltage increases again, whilst the number of potential ions decreases, and the chance of impact lowers. For nearly a century, physicists have had two definitions, one proposed by German physicist Max Abraham and another derived by German mathematician Hermann Minkowski. A resonant suspension is used to detect its motion.
TT Brown used between 40kk volts for his own experiments, which would obviously produce much larger and denser electrostatic fields for the same size capacitors. Notes from the Rabbit Hole 3: At the same time, the number of impacts between ionized and neutral particles is reduced. That’s not to say something like this is completely unfeasiable; Dr. As for the maser lightcraft, I’d never heard of it, sounds interesting, do you have any more info on this?
If it is, this would be worthwhile since it doesn’t use any fuel.
