Actually the last link you posted contains ideas and observations very pertinent to what Ed Storms talks about- his Nuclear Active Zones. Interesting stuff, an extract is below.

Highly localized nuclear activation in electrochemical systems and other electrical discharge processes have been observed by many laboratories in world. There is an attempt to explain such anomalous phenomena by using torsion field theory and axion model in this report.
Anisotopic behaviours of radiation products, burst charster, “Heat after death” of excess energy release in electrical discharge systems are considered to be interpreted by the torsion coherence of vortex dynamics with the zero-point energy induced by localized intense field emission of micro-protrusion of the cathode, and the dynamic Casimir effect of transient evolution of triple region of gas, liquid solution, and electrode protrusion. Axion model and Primakoff effect are proposed as an explanation of nuclear transmutation without noticeable gamma radiation. Nuclear products with high concentrationsn, unidentified tracks with highly collimated lines of low energy nuclear reactions in the electrochemical systems were recorded by CR-39 solid detectors and photo-films, and localized spots with chemical alterations were observed at our laboratory.
It is suggested to carry out intensive study of vortex dynamic for explaining the anomalous in wide area of nature and laboratories. Analysis of vortex dynamics with wide range from pitting corrosion of electrochemical system, laboratory plasma, tornado, to quasar spiral model with extremely high energy cosmic rays in the center region, leads to a conclusion for that vortex dynamics creates torsion fields responding to the anomalous effects.
