    Where I live, that is generally called 'child endangerment', and is severely frowned upon...

    However, when the men and women involved are not informed of the danger to the level of understanding of the risks…

    I wouldn't. It is an anomaly. There are a couple of things I could think of to explain it, but the explanations are just speculation. F&P (or someone) would need to replicate the effect and thereby demonstrate control over it. …

    Imagine the press when a child's science fair project explodes and glass shards cut up all people in the vicinity...

    Thank you for clarifying. In my estimation, this number is ludicrous unless one is talking about total unloading to 0.0 D/M. It is hard to get the last bit out. It is easy and fast to drop from D/M = 0.9+ to 0.7 (seconds to…

    I see that Dr. McKubre 'liked' Zeus46's post above. I would 'like' Dr. McKubre to finish the challenge he started over in the other thread. Mizuno's bucket of water

    There is no "27' or 'twenty' even on pg. 12 or in the entire document. More made-up stuff JR? Please quote what you are claiming supports your contention so I can actually find what you are talking about in the paper if you…

    No, I have experience loading Pd foils of the same approximate size in gas loading experiments, which is equivalent to the situation of the UPPER half of the electrode. Since the upper half remains attached to the lower half, the H…

    It is based on personal experience with gas loading of a variety of hydrides, including Pd , supported thick film Pd, and Pd alloys. They unload very rapidly when well activated.

    Edit: I should add that when Ed Storms measured…

    Ascoli65,

    You also might enjoy http://lenr-canr.org/acrobat/GoodsteinDwhateverha.pdf It describes the skewed reviewing that happens in the field. Goodstein wasn't aware of my 2002 publication in 2000 (even thought he original manuscript came out…

    I totally agree with you. It is also well explained in your whitepaper. But you know as well that, in this field, all the problems raised by this kind of considerations are solved by postulating the existence of a few miracles…

    You know there is another consideration not routinely brought up in considering these experiments, namely unloading. For the case of Pd and assuming the bulk loading level matters (which I don't but most CFers do), as the electrolyte level…

    Hi Kirk,
    thanks for your information and attention.

    These are also my conclusions, inferred on the basis of the internal inconsistencies in the ICCF3 paper and the results of the Lonchampt's replications.

    Your comments made me take a second look and I found something interesting. As I noted in my whitepaper, the ICCF3 paper that JR referred to was later published in a slightly modified form in Phys. Lett. A, 176 (1993) 118. They presented…

    And you are an idiot savant at missing the point, twice now. The melting point is not the issue, the deformation temperature is. That value is 126C based on literature references. So, the 'damage' F&P saw was likely caused at…

    Ascoli65 - You may want to glance at Fig. 1 in http://coldfusioncommunity.net…4/SRNL-STI-2012-00678.pdf

    I don't see any significant difference.

    My conclusion was the method used to claim excess heat was flawed.

    Then it would not be Kel-F as F&P claim in their paper. Kel-F's melting point is more like 200-215C, as I showed in the references in my prior post. F&P specifically say this: "furthermore the Kel-F supports of the electrodes…

    Some tidbits on KelF specs:

    Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polychlorotrifluoroethylene
    "This results in having a relatively lower melting point among fluoropolymers, around 210–215 °C."
