One thing you have to keep in mind is that a long skinny bullet is quite difficult to stabilize in flight. Consequently you would require a tighter turn on the rifling and increased drag in the barrel, ultimately nullifying the effect you are trying to achieve. Achieving very high velocities from a ...

google earth doesn't give high enough resolution- you really need a small plane for this sort of work

re: problems with craftjet injector

I was never able to get mine running on liquid fuel, but it ran great on acetylene directly injected into the combustion chamber.

hey what version of Solidworks are you running? that looks like some nice work.
you should post an e-drawing if possible

Re: re: Gas (Tesla) Turbine started

On just one last note, i did find an interesting alternative "use" for the turbine. A hands off spinning top. Take your stack and shaft out of the housing, sit it up on a smooth surface like a spinning top, and wind it up with some air. Once its spinning, you can let it free, and speed it right up ...

re: Another pocket lockwood success

nicely done!
Im allways suprised when someone gets one of these to run correclty, since I had such a tough time developing the prototype. I guess once yoe hit the right dimensions it turns out to be a pretty forgiving design.

re: help in designing a small turbine

what would really be amazing is counter-rotating compressor wheels, but this extremely hard to engineer. the bennifits of such a system would be worth the effort in my opinion.
