Tesla turbine, vavular conduit and mechanical oscillator (not the

electro-mechanical oscillator)

The patent I have seen suggests useing the mechanical osciallator in

conjunction with the vavular conduit. This basically means attaching a

piston to one end of the mechanical oscillator. In this case the piston

has a vavular conduit from one end to the other. On the compression

stroke air has difficulty passing backward through the vavular conduit.

On the intake stroke air is easily drawn in through the top of the

piston and compressed. Several such pistons can be used in series,on the

same shaft, so that air proceeds through each piston, becoming more

compressed with each stroke.Several such pistons can result in

liquification of air. The stroke of a mechanical oscillator depends on

length and can be from severl hundred to several thousand per minute.

The electro mechanical oscillator can move coils in the hundreds of

pounds at the same speed as light weight coils. As a generator its

efficiency is very high. It can produce a type of direct current and

cause rapid rotation in a Faraday disk.

As to the relationship formula below, there is one I developed which

depends on the area of rotational contact. C= pi D A= pi R squared.

The rotational contact area is equal to the surface area of the disk

multiplied by the rpm. Rpm is determined by the speed of the steam,

under load, this will be half the speed of the incoming steam, without

load it will approach the speed of the incoming steam. These figures are

variable based on the number of disks and air resistance. If a condenser

is used, a hard vacuum will be created at the outlet of the turbine,

reduceing resistance. If heat of vaporization is reclaimed from the

steam, only a fraction of the energy will be necessary to boil the water

into steam.

Tesla suggested useing twice as many rotors in a vacuum turbine as

with the drive turbine to remove air from the containment. Since the

rotors in a vacuum turbine can be made thinner, it would be about the

same weight. The amount of work the vacuum turbine does is only a

fraction of the work the drive turbine does, because it removes trace

amounts of air, compared to the drive turbine which is moved by 27 cubic

foot of steam per pound of water. So work done greatly exceeds work

consumed. The volume of the steam is 27 cubic foot at stp. At 27 HG the

volume of steam may equal 64 cubic foot.
