    WCG: Rossi has been poor meat for those of us who enjoy deconstructing his non-working demos. By that, I mean they don't even pretend to work so there is no work, or fun.

    Perhaps he has recouped his strength and will give us…

    It may do that: the question is how to get as much time and trouble from reviewers who are constructively critical and therefore help you to improve the paper. In addition, as a quality determining mechanism, it is a bit rough.

    But…

    That is a perfectly respectable viewpoint... for engineering. As Rossi tells us but then does not deliver, the market (or at least the reality of easily replicable working demos) trumps science writeups.

    For you, I pretty much agree. Last Fall you remarked that those on your team are getting on in age and you just want to go fast now. I responded that if you want to go fast, the way to do that is post a complete set of…

    OK - so I agree that if R20 is replicated all this is boring, LENR (or something equiv) exists, the world changes.

    Otherwise:

    We are not arguing about R20. We are doing R19 calculations.
    It is not boring if the aim is to…

    Wow RB! That is interesting. I'd like to check your figures though. That is because if you are right there is a serious hole in Mizuno's data for calorimeter efficiency, or Jed's data for the R value of the insulation, or mizuno's data for how the…

    WCG: now we understand. You base your evaluation of Rossi on his blog posts.

    Just in a matter of accuracy. Rossi has an Italian master's degree in Philosophy of Science - nothing like the level of a PhD. Italians have a low standard for how they use Dott. Though the specialisation in any case suits his PR…

    Agreed, but it appears to share a reluctance (or inability?) to submit for mainstream peer review.

    Frankly, most LENR work could be written up as non-LENR if it represents real unexpected experimental anomalies. You don't need to…

    PfD - just one point. AFAIK there are no definite predictions. There is a world of difference between claiming in some hand-waving way to calculate some already known value, and predicting it ab initio.

    I think one simple…

    I realise that, and think it is one of the problems more generally with the LENR field. Peer review is about getting criticism. Constructive, yes, but not socialist "all papers are equal". Without that there is no push to get…

    PS - the box inner foil temperature of ~ 80C is experimentally determined, if you believe the efficiency and heat output data in the paper, since the insulation R value is known. The only unknown is the amount the whole calorimeter housing will heat up…

    (Quote from RobertBryant)


    RB: I agree with some of your speculation and generalisation above.

    However: what evidence do you have that air temperature is lower near the foil? The boundary layer by the foil will be heated by the foil and thus high in…

    Please restate these calculations and show how convection has been accounted for

    Stefan. Could you be a bit more precise? We are interested in what determines the heat balance at higher powers where efficiency is lower and losses are larger. There are three important temperature, all different:

    RB - would you like to say how you determine the insulation inner foil temperature? Thus, do you agree that forced air convection cools it and radiation heats it, and the balance of these two determines the temperature. And therefore to first…

    When I say you have poor knowledge of heat transfer it is not personal.


    You cannot model heat transfer by radiation only. .. it is obvious.

    your calculations based on radiation only are erroneous.

    Please read and understand points 3 - 6 above.

    All I need is the (textbook) assumption that forced convection cooling is roughly proportional to temperature delta, and the (proven from…

    Did the calculation measure the temperature to show it was not true?
    Please use a different tense.
    Your calculation is erroneous.

    No I haven't. You cannot use T4 radiative ht dependency alone to model the heat transfer when 60- 90 %
