Re: turbine

John,
I would like to look at the video, but I am at may day job (night job) and it is not permited. I will check it out on the morrow.

Thanks much for you insight.

Re: turbine

John, The steam market seems to be a much harder market to crack. I believe that a 100% condensing steam turbine has a place in the market but may be a hard sell initially. The the lack of easily available testing equipment (50 hp high pressure boiler or larger) make the task of verifing the steam a...

Re: turbine

Yes, I have thought of running off exhaust gas of an engine. It was my very first thought on the matter. The problem, I am guesing is that most engines can only handle a back pressure of about 5 psi. I really do not need pressure I need momentum, or the combination of velocity and mass to do work in...

Re: turbine

I watched the vid, very interesting! (except the crack of course) As for the burn efficiency I had thought of staging turbines; burning the gases after one turbine fed into a pulse jet running another turbine. Is after burning an option? My main point is that I really have enough to worry about with...

Re: turbine

The RPM ratio to gas velocity is not a direct correlation as it would be with conventional turbines. I have no way of telling what the velocity of the steam exiting the nozzle is; but it was not an Alfa Lava nozzle so I highly doubt that the velocities were that high. The idea of using the pulse jet...

turbine

I must say I have read a couple of the topics and I am very impressed by the knowledge of the people on this site. WE (my company) have been developing a new type of turbine over the last 5 years or so. It is not a Tesla turbine but is a boundary layer turbine. I do not want to divulge exactly how t...

Re: pulse detonation valveless gasturbine

I do not see how this is a detonation engine at all. As I understand it (not that saying too much) detonantion is a spontanious chemical reaction and burning is rapid oxidation. As for the engine its self. It can only generate power on about 1/4 of the wheel. Or the expansion extends past only 1/4 o...
