Thank you for meeting with me yesterday. The experience was an immense exhilaration and I learned a lot.
I have decided my next step is to start with what seems to work, and duplicate Shawyer’s results, specifically his “demonstration engine“. If all the mundane explanations, as mentioned yesterday, can be controlled for (see bottom) and the cavity still moves, then I want to test my “high powered resonating EM wave connection to gravity” idea. I also want to test the cavity by hanging it from a pendulum. To test the gravity connection idea, I have a few ideas in mind, one of which is using a reflected laser to create interference patterns (I have to learn more about these).
I have already completed one set of simulations of Shawyer’s cavity (shown) but I still have to draw the thing to scale and figure out how to pump it in the TE0,1,n mode.
I will have to check, but I think the surrounding material is a “Perfect Electrical Conductor” which would explain the high V/m. The simulation is using the eigenmode solver.
I will keep you updated and send simulation results.
Below I have labeled most of the parts of Shawyer’s cavity :
I have a few questions:
1. As shown on his home page, Shawyer tunes his cavity from the back and I plan to do the same thing, however, should I also order a tuning stub? I am asking because I plan to get a launcher, isolator and waveguide to n-type adapter ordered shortly because of the lead times.
2. Do you know of any vendors for launchers, isolators and waveguides? I have priced out the following vendors:
Isolator – datasheet here [PDF] – $950 (refurbished)
Launcher – $490 – Guoguang Electric Co., Ltd., China
Waveguide to n-type adapter – $490 – Guoguang Electric Co., Ltd., China
BTW – I thought you might be interested in how I tested the cavity I showed you:
The magnetron was dunked in mineral oil to cool it, keep it electrically isolated and remove the blowing fan. The oil was pumped out of the can and circulated through a radiator at the bottom, before returning. The entire apparatus was hung as a pendulum with aircraft wire. A laser was bounced off the can onto a white board in the background in such a manner that even the smallest movement of the test rig would result in an amplified movement of the laser dot (barely visible). The plan was to draw scaled marks on the whiteboard, but because of arcing, I never got that far. The oil circulating in the pump also imparted a slight wobble which took forever to damp out. The cavity was only tested about four times and at most for 20 seconds.
Method for Testing Thermal and Mass Exchange Affects:
Two Types of Conventional Explanations:
- Mass exchange – i.e. rocket type propellant
- Thermal affects – two forms, the first is a jet of air and the second is buoyancy.
For the mass exchange, we can measure the weight of the apparatus before and after to test to make sure no mass has been lost or gained.
Place a garbage bag (tested for holes first), around the experiment and rerun it. Check to see if it changes shape, etc.
