    A possible less known fact, is that Fleischmann considered several more metals as suitable for lattice cathode material in their reactor.

    As explained and claimed in the F&P patent from 1990, they even included…

  • Well, I believe the biggest problem with present Nuclear Power Industry projects is cost and schedule.

    Construction time of Nuclear has proven to be 10-15 years in Europe and US. Like the Finnish Olkiluoto (1600 MWe) EPR project, where construction…

    But is there not a very mundane explanation here?

    1. Stress release in the cathode as H ions is coming out would raise the temperature
    2. Recombination to H2 as hydrogen ions come out of the cathode would increase the temperature

    Well, Ascoli,

    You have many comments here, but now it's Christmas and I have other Priorities 🤓. I will look at your comments later.

    But just a few general remarks,

    The reason I have referred to Lonchampt, is that I am not awar of other attempts to…

    Do you have any documentation to indicate how many tried to replicate the 1992/93 papers?

    I think most scientists where busy developing their own setups and researching the causes of cold fusion as such, not If excess heat…

    Ascoli,

    Again: Fleischmann were very well avare of possible foaming.

    Now as to the possible foaming in the cells. The Japanese were plagued by this problem due to their use of D2O destined for N.M.R. experiments. This contained added…

    Ascoli;

    I disagree with your point above.

    The purpose of Scientific papers is to present results of tests done, and to present enough data for other scientists to replicatte the study.

    The paper of F&P together with their previous papers referred to…

    Thanks Shane, was not aware of this. Exciting !

    I always found the work at SPAWAR impressive and an ingenious way of achieving the required D/Pd loading.

    Oystla,

    They did. That tech was first brought over to Larry Forsley's GEC, and now they are working with NASA. In fact, taking place this month is the first year progress assessment of the GEC/NASA GRC 10kW hybrid LENR space…

    We have not reached the end of science and new discoveries are waiting, nature has still some surprises up her sleeve, yes 🙂

    My wish would be that someone followed up on the work done at SPAWAR.

    Short loading times and extreme repeatability !!

    It is difficult to imagine what mechanism should cause condensation in the midst of a steam flow. ITS fine with possible condensation on the tube glass wall, where water Runs back down in the cell, but inside the steam flow?

    Huxley, "Also remember that the high voltage and resistance starts a full day before the final 10 minute period."
