    So you turned about one ton of kerosene into CO2 just to discuss with Takahashi how attributing his TC4 temperature fluctuations, which can be easily explained as ordinary cooling events caused by air conditioning of his lab at…

    Read again my interpretation of the down peaks reported by Takahashi et al. (*), please. They can be easily explained by cooling events of the H(D) gas pipe caused by the air jet coming from the AC unit nearby. The colder air…

    18:30 (6:30 pm) is a good time to go home after a working day started before 9 am. The sun also sets at around that time in Kobe on September 19, a Wednesday in 2018, and the temperature drops rapidly in the evening at that…

    The curves you posted derive from the row data shown in Figure 4 of the JCF19 paper (1).The TC4 fluctuation end at 18:30 in the evening when people went home and turned off the AC cooling.

    As for Figure 7 (2), the only thing it…

    Hi anonymous,

    Your considerations are quite reasonable. However, if the purpose of an experiment is to demonstrate something, the ones we are talking about are already perfect: state of the art, best equipment, prestigious…

    Actually, the most actual paper is not the one mentioned by you, but its revised version (1). At page 6, it reads "TC4 (gas inlet/outlet point of RC upper flange) temperature" and, as shown in Figure 1, the thermocouple is probably…

    The foam-lagged pipe is not the one I'm referring to. It is foam-lagged because it contains the BT400 coolant.

    I'm referring to the H(D) piping which comes out of the reactor aligned with its axis, the one with a black valve handle…

    Fine. And could you help me reconcile what reported by Wyttenbach (1) "No fan is even close to the reactor..." and what claimed by Curbina (2) "air conditioning that by all means is there purposefully to enhance the level of

    The foam was in the F&P's cells during their "1992 boil-off experiment" (*).

    Regarding his recent visit to Takahashi's lab, Wyttenbach wrote (1): "He is actively cooling the whole lab with a precision of 0.0001C!" Can you tell me…

    2012 is mentioned on the slide, not in the photograph. The date imprinted in the photo is November 8, 2017 (2017/11/08).

    As highlighted in my JPEG (*), the slide was presented at ICCF21 in June 2018 and its title specifies that the…

    The following JPEG shows much more recent photographs of the Kobe lab.

    The AC unit was still there.

    OK, now I better understand your situation. Did you ever published a photo of your experimental setup?

    Anyway, the base room temperature is not a problem and not even the cooling or heating of the box. Heating and cooling of a…

    I don't understand why you moved my post (*), which was showing the position of the AC unit inside the Kobe cabin. It is the answer to the Wyttenbach's post, in which he stated that "No fan is even close to the reactor...". This…

    It's obvious that the overall time constant is dominated by the reactor mass, which is 10x greater than the box mass, but the down spike + recovery transients only involve the box and the air inside it, so no wonder that their…

    The scarce effectiveness of the "special conditions" set in the INFN lab to control the ambient conditions is documented by the trend of T_Room (green line) in the graph shown on my JPEG.

    As for the cabin at Kobe lab, the temperature was…

    So, you are confirming that the calorimeter at Hokkaido University of Science is totally inadequate to isolate the interior space from the external air.

    Is it possible, in your opinion, that the 3 down spikes at the end of the…

    Thank you.

    Your box is much better insulated than the Saito calorimeter shown in Figure 1 (1). The latter has a metal frame, probably in aluminum, and only one layer of bubble foil which separates the interior space from the…

    Have you tried to direct the air flow from a fan heater to the exterior walls of your box?
    Maybe it's possible to reproduce the strange behavior shown in Figure 6. "Calibration and excess heat at 72 W."
