    We use Pascal at work too and no plan to leave that platform. We also code in C++, Java so we know alternatives but find the Pascal quite good for it's task.

    The control factors for cold fusion are well understood. They are shown in the McKubre equation. There is no chance the heat can be explained by chance. It is difficult to achieve exactly the same level of loading and other…

    I believe "Dewey, Cheetham & Howe" originated in the radio show "Car Talk." They have a long list of terrible puns like that:

    This assumes that only the heat capacity of the fuel is important. What if the active reaction causes a change in the heat capacity of the rest of reactor (heating coil, etc)? That might be caused by a phase change (melting) of…

    You mean a liquid electrochemical experiment. The classic Pd-D F&P experiment. Yes, that is much easier on the thermocouples! Plus, as I said, F&P and array of them, so they could tell if one was damaged.

    Hi Robert, at the kind of temperatures we typically run at - between 200 and 800C there is no possibility of phase change in the Class 26 foamed aiumina furnace bricks or Kanthal heating wires that make up the inner part of the…

    Well, we just made some terms up to suit ourselves. We call them 'controlled', 'slaved',or 'free running' reactors. I guess you can work out which is which. You didn't miss this btw, the topic has not been discussed in any detaiil before.

    Do you have a set terminology for your different experimental configurations? When the temperature of a reactor is being determined by your PID controller do you call it `temperature clamp` or something like that. And what is the name of…

    I have not heard that. Who is trying to do that? Fleischmann and I tried many years ago, as described in the Fleischmann - Miles letters. I don't think anyone has tried since then. Mike McKubre mentioned that he got some of the old…

    This is an excellent article written in 2008 by McKubre. It covers just about everything talked about in this thread. As Jed points out; replication sounds so simple, but the bugger is in the…

    As I noted above, that wasn't me. That was someone at the Institute of High Energy Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. A grad student, I'll bet. Imagine trying to count all those experiments! See Front. Phys. China (2007)…

    This isn't my field but I stumbled on it while googling for something else. It appears to show that you can speed up the loading and unloading of hydrogen into Palladium by using magnets. This isn't something I've seen discussed here. Sorry if Ive…

    Zorud,

    Eric is still a Moderator. It is up to him to explain why he does not participate anymore. I can tell you there was no effort on our part to force him to leave, or anything like that.

    This is comic-book history. Edison was brilliant. He made tremendous contributions to both technology and basic science. As a businessman, he was somewhat unsavory by modern standards, but he was typical of the 19th century. His…

    Yes, the heat is there. But these are temperature-controlled reactors - anomalous heat while the reactor is running is measured by comparing power consumption of test and control reactors running the same heat profile.

    I have not been following this thread, but it now seems important.


    It would be in the range of many chemical reactions on a molar basis. For lighter elements a mole is a modest mass. Mole of H2 ~2 grams (~ 22.4 L at STP) for…

    After discussing with people from innovation domain, I'm convinced :
    • there will be no way to lock LENR with a patent, as there is no way to block a tsunami.
      • like with a tsunami best would be not to put wall, but to free the way, and just take a fee
