Chronological intermediate. WB8 is built. Wouldn't you test PBj on 8.1 rather than on WBD? Look at the exact way Park put it.KitemanSA wrote:Not quite sure what you mean here. pB&J isn't "intermediate" between WB8 and WB-D, it IS WB8 with some ancilliary mods. They don't need another intermediate scale machine to go pB&J. Just to be clear.Betruger wrote: Though if WB-8 is the last small scale machine, that doesn't leave too many things other than PB11, intermediate to WB-D.
Now Dr. B wanted to do TWO additional small scale machines before going full scale. He wanted to do a "square plane-form" cuboctohedron and a similar icosadodecahedron. Personally, I'd like to see those too.
They aren't much needed for utility power plants, but for ships etc., size matters.
Yeah, "positive results" doesn't say how positive.Tom Ligon wrote:The unanswered questions for me are ...
The real issue is does it work well enough? That "more or less" could cover several rather significant orders of magnitude.
It's going to be very interesting to see how everything works out.
