Bose-Einstein Quantum States in Kitelines and Cross-Linked Kite Arrays
- An off-forum quest for a quantum-mechanical accounting for kite tug continues to advance, to ultimately enable a sound formal prediction of whether mechanical tug or FEGs with conductive cables promise the greatest AWES power transmission potential. Tug has a mysterious efficiency given supermaterials like UHMWPE, but how can we account for this?Bose-Einstein statistics are being seen to apply to mechanical tug in a kiteline and the required phonon (boson) quantum coherence and correlation effects seem evident. This is a case of universal condensed matter physics being specifically identified in our macroscale "room-temperature" liquid-crystal solids, not just the more famous cryogenic electrical superconductivity in solids and cryogenic condensed gas superfluidity models. BE statistics are lately being found in many macro-scale systems, such as car traffic and computer networks, and the kiteline and kite array BE finding is consistent with this expansive applicability. It seems that any lattice of (quasi) identical repeating physical elements, like a structural spaceframe in architecture, a Bell Cellular Kite*, mega-scale airborne latticework, molecular crystals, and wave-fields generally, share these emergent BE/QM statisical properties.This is not yet the complete validated QM explanation of tug, but an important clue along the way...* Which, given its design defects, would hardly fly at all without this overlooked advantage!
