"So our goal here is to design a new aircraft that does not run on the usual combustion technology. But on the energy of the wind, by producing stable vortices that can produce lift from the centrifugal acceleration of air."

Thru the use of Pyromagnetics, the creation of a powerful magnetic field is brought about to create a Thermodynamic Air Compressor whereas this high pressure air is funneled to a vortex chamber to create a powerful tornadic effect. Which in turn can create thrust thru suction? By mating two concepts, Thermomagnetics and thermodynamic cycling of circulating air masses creates a new engine concept with unbelievable power. Creating power thru the use of vacuum instead of the use of standard combustion technology.

So in the beginning of 2001 I began researching alternative sources for small light aircraft engines. This research has leaded me into Victor Schauberger’s Repulsion Vortex Technologies. The development of new engine concepts for light aircraft must be addressed because of current government regulations outlawing the use of 2-stroke combustion engines in the near future.

In 1979 I became involved in aircraft design and construction. With the help of investors I successfully developed several types of Ultralight aircraft in which several hundred were manufactured and sold in 82 and 83. The aircraft touched on the higher speed capabilities of this design and proved light aircraft could out run other existing conventional certificated aircraft designs. Our company “Worldwide Industries” was successful from the time our doors opened. In the down turn of the economy in 84’, the market folded and bankruptcy knocked hard at our door. We folded and it was back to work in Engineering and design to pay off the depts.

Five new designs of aircraft were built and sold during this period. Even some experimental airboat designs were constructed and evaluated for sale to the public when the end came. Companies come and go but ideas are the stuff dreams are made of. So 20 years of working aerodynamics in the grass roots of aviation has taught me a great deal of knowledge. My work in Engineering design has given me much valued experiences. Although I am not a licensed Engineer, I surround myself with the qualified educated people to help answer my profound questions. Still today I continued to design and develop new aircraft ideas to help make the world a better place to live. In the next 20 years I envision the idea of anybody walking into their garage and sitting in a vehicle that could take them anywhere in the world in the matter of hours. Tell the computer where you want to go and press a button and it will take you there. Commercial airlines will be a thing of the past. I make my living building aircraft kits and selling them to customers to construct themselves. Over the last 20 years I have accumulated over 7000 hours of flight time. Most of this time was teaching others to fly. And have enjoyed every minute of my life. So do I have the qualifications and background for this endeavor, I will let you decide.

What I have found was that not much information had been generated in this particular field of Repulsion Energy. The recent book released by Callum Coats titled “The Energy Revolution” has opened the door to much research in this vast field. But still to decipher Victors meanings of repulsion energy took many hours of study. And I still continue that research even today. Others have come forth who know of this technology and have shared some of their many years of research with me.

 This Seminar of 2005 will cover the following topics:

                                    1. Background of Victor Schauberger

                                         2. Repulsion System Development

                                               3. Waveplate Theory and Mechanics

                                                      4. Pyromagnetic Propulsion Concepts

Swirling vertical flows possess unique characteristics which can be exploited to obtain significant technological benefits in the form of vortex propulsion. The basic working principle is to create a strong swirling flow to produce very low pressure above a lifting surface, which generates thrust. Swirl in the incoming flow is achieved via an open vortex chamber, and the resulting low pressure rarefaction is intensified by an airfoil-shaped diffuser, which ensures an attached flow without separation. The flow enters the swirler, acquires angular momentum and exits over the diffuser, where it reverses direction (by the Coanda effect) and is ejected into the ambient fluid. Such a flow is like an artificial tornado, creating a strong rarefaction (low pressure) zone on the upward-facing, internal top surface of the vortex chamber. Since there is higher ambient pressure on the external bottom surface of the chamber, a lift force is generated by this pressure difference. Additional rarefaction is created by the flow over the upper surface of the diffuser by its airfoil shape. Operating parameters for the vortex chamber must be determined to avoid separation over the diffuser. Such attached flow over the diffuser is possible since the Coanda effect is much stronger in the presence of swirl and is also stronger in turbulent flows.

Physically, the difference between conventional jet propulsion and the vortex thruster is that in the former, the net force generated and the power requirements are determined by the same axial velocity component. In the vortex thruster, a large net force is generated primarily by the tangential velocity component, but only a relatively small axial flow rate, and hence, relatively small power is required. Preliminary experiments using a simple device to model a thruster have verified that thrust is in fact generated in the same direction as the exit flow. The initial conservative estimates indicate that a thruster with a 1 sq. m. chamber area can generate 4 tons of thrust with 17 times less energy than a conventional jet.

The vortex thruster has significant applications enhancing or replacing conventional thrust/lift devices, e.g. propellers and wings on helicopters, aircraft, and ships; in particular, a bladeless helicopter will be highly desirable innovation from the viewpoint of maneuverability and safety. The main idea behind this device is completely new -- based on the "artificial tornado" principle.

Designer Kim Zorzi expected that a Vertical Vortex Thruster Engine-based "helicopter" would be very simple, compact and much more efficient than a conventional helicopter. Fuel requirement is non oil related and gets its power from electricity generated by differentiated air temperatures.

As you will see in this seminar, the relationship of Victor Schaubergers vortex research and the Vortex Thruster is a powerful engine concept yet to be developed for humanity.
