Cocktail Shaker Escopeta

Post by hinote » Fri Dec 17, 2004 4:44 pm

Hi all:

Please see the attached photo, and the "hybrid" photo/drawing below it.

It's an off-the-shelf cocktail shaker, spun from stainless steel.

I believe it could be the basis for a really nice engine, as depicted in the drawing.

It's a work in progress, but if I can get an off-the-shelf megaphone integrated into the design, this would become a valveless pulsejet with NO parts to fabricate--just weld it up and go!

lol, I have the very same cocktail shaker, but in a very different configuration. Did you get it from Wal Mart?

There's also a nice pony & jigger in the set that I bought.

I think that buying ready-made stainless components for experimentation is a great way to go -- lots of stuff out there that is a good approximation of shapes that we'd otherwise need to fabricate. I was starting to photograph parts so that I could "assemble" a virtual engine on the PC. By making the photographs semi-transparent, you can easily visualize how one piece will fit inside another (i.e., clearances etc.)

My wife has learned to view my sudden interest in ordinary household items with suspicion.

For instance, some decanters look like they might make interesting (but expensive) 'snorkeler' jam jars...

Dear Bill.
I think your induction pipe will have to be a lot longer. Try making your induction pipe (at 276K) the same acoustic length as your tailpipe (at 1600K) up to th end of the divergent section.

Graham:

Sorry 'bout that--the drawing is just a concept.

I would need to run this thru the Uflow program, at the very least.

IMHO the back end of the cocktail shaker isn't tapered enough--and would either need to be extended, or possibly an Ecrevisse "step" added.

I'm not going forward with this concept--but I would be glad to "help", if anybody would like an amateur's opinion about how to make this concept resonate.

Dear Bill.
I made a mistake anyway, it should be to the end of the straight pipe- beginning of the divergent section of tailpipe. I was thinking of the Cocktail Shaker for one of the French Ladys - fitting really.

Happy Christmas
Graham.
