Re: LENR Is Real

The Report calculated power out depends on the calculated temperature, which is wrong. When you correct the calculated temperature, you find the calculated power out rises proportional to the input with a COP of 1.07. this is well within errors. The authors calculated temperature much more dependent...

Re: LENR Is Real

I've linked - in the post you reply to - a note I wrote containing all the workings, and the code to generate the numbers. It references all my sources and is self-contained. There are a few typos etc, and the (long) section on "other errors" is maybe a bit ropey. But the 1.07 COP bit is p...

Re: LENR Is Real

The Lugano test has been replicated at least three times already with more to come. A fair minded scientist should ask himself, "How does any system produce more power than is fed into it?". The Lugano test showed a calculated COP (at the two higher temperatures) of 1.07 and 1.07. The err...

Re: LENR Is Real

Yeah some of the LENR proponents tend to get overly aggressive when it comes to something that could potentially make it to market first. The funny thing is they behave as badly as the scientists and organizations they say are suppressing LENR research. After skimming the comments on the E-Cat site...

Re: LENR Is Real

Axil, just maybe, maybe there are no dead observers to the ECat because thermal resister heaters warming up an inert powder of various compounds and elements salted with some pricey enriched Ni62 metal do not generate gamma rays and fast neutrons. I know it sounds like a fringe, offbeat kinda theor...

Re: LENR Is Real

BTW how are the conditions for a boson condensate met at 1400C+? This is were new science comes in. Boson condensation can be achieved by lowering temperature, true, but is can also be achieved by reducing the mass of the boson to 10E-11 that of the electron. Also extremely high densities of the bo...

Re: LENR Is Real

The central hole of the reactor must be hotter than the surface, if the heat comes from the central hole. BTW how are the conditions for a boson condensate met at 1400C+? There comes a point when whatever prior belief in a hypothesis - and I can see yours is high - you add up implausibilities and ab...

Re: LENR Is Real

Tom, your analysis points to some understandable contradictions between valid everyday engineering assumptions and the actual processes that are going on inside of the reactor. These factors are hard to reconcile. But the pictures of the nickel particles (particle 1) that we are given in the latest...

Re: LENR Is Real

Axil, buying 62Ni is hardly difficult. Nor heating it up to make an ash substitute. More difficult by far would be mixing Ni62 with natural nickel at microscopic level so as to simulate half-depleted nuclear fuel. Is it known that the nickel is strewn as a powder throughout? What if it's a pellet in...

Re: LENR Is Real

Like I said before when someone else made this argument. There are (Huge) assumptions in this argument. Is the Fuel distribution uniform? Is the distribution of ash uniform before a sample was taken? Why was the test limited to 32 days? The first one isnt too big of an assumption but without knowin...

Re: LENR Is Real

axil this reactor has no secondary heater. It has a whacking great heater that gets the temp up to 750C or so. And that is what the temperature is, so no evidence of heat generation. Further evidence: The "ash" measures as pure 62Ni - also as chemically pure 62Ni with none of the other ele...

Re: LENR Is Real

No, the problem is the scientific community decided at an early stage to make any research into anything resembling cold fusion a career ending decision. That is the problem. If good researchers were free to pursue research into this area without the ridicule factor. We would have a body of accepte...

Re: LENR Is Real

One of the fascinating questions here is who other than Rossi is dishonest. There are I think a lot of people who are genuine believers. It is ironic that somone incapable of presenting a scientific case should find it so easy to gather believers around him. But I guess that is what good con men do,...

Re: LENR Is Real

I agree that isotopic transmutation (of such a clear nature) would be much stronger evidence for LENR than any calorimetry - especially something as flaky as here. Rossi will find supporters on the strength of this report. It is sad, but people want to believe, and are unwilling to think others frau...
