Collected works, with commentary

This quantity comprises the amassed works of the eminent chemist and physicist Lars Onsager, probably the most influential scientists of the 20 th Century. the amount contains Onsager's formerly unpublished PhD thesis, a biography through H C Longuet-Higgins and M E Fisher, an autobiographical statement, chosen pictures, and a listing of Onsager dialogue feedback in print.

Portable X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry Capabilities for In Situ Analysis

Moveable X-ray fluorescence (PXRF) instrumentation has a few exact analytical functions for the in situ research of samples within the box. those services were prolonged lately by means of the ongoing improvement of good nation detectors, floor fixed electronics, electronic sign processing expertise, Li-ion batteries mixed with a decision of rugged sealed radioisotope resources or miniature X-ray tubes that offer light-weight handheld units.

Modern Developments in Energy, Combustion and Spectroscopy. In Honor of S. S. Penner

This compendium of technical articles is devoted to Professor Stanford Solomon Penner at the party of his seventieth birthday. As some of the most famous scientists of our occasions, he has been relatively instrumental in advancing the sphere of combustion technology whereas at the same time he has built quantitative spectroscopy into a tremendous engineering self-discipline, and can also be a number one overseas professional on strength concerns.

Same basic principle. Patrick you were partially correct in your analysis of what is happening in the cylinder. What is happening is that water vapour is being taken in on the intake stroke, compressed and heated on the compression stroke and turned to a "fog" or a more finely vaporised gas on the first part of the power stroke just prior to getting kicked by that ONE HORSE! At the firing of the plug, there is very little plasma dissociation of the water and any that does is almost immediately recombined as I mentioned before.

It would be great to have a system that allows running experiments that could test different algorithms for cracking the molecules. I don't have a clue yet what a good starting algorithm would be, but I bet some folks here could recommend a few to try. You can build and sequence a spark event many ways (if money and time were of no concern). For example, one algorithm might be to "build" a high voltage pure AC signal of a "programmable" frequency profile across the spark plug electrodes, hoping to cause water molecule resonance of some sort, but with slightly less voltage than would cause it to spark, increasing the voltage until continuous arcing occurs and then build additional DC voltage across the electrodes, combining the AC and DC to make a sort of plasma with a "DC bias" in its applied voltage.

But in a watercar with the firing at 20o-30o AFTER TDC, the firing would be at the very beginning of the intake stroke. This may be beneficial or detrimental. Since there is very little water vapor in the cylinder at the beginning of the intake stroke, there would be very little water to explode and thus it would have little effect or at most just give a little shove to the crank and a bit of back-pressure to the intake manifold. Such an electron avalanche on the intake stroke most likely would not cause a backfire or much back pressure in the intake manifold because of the stronger suction pressure of the pistons dropping and because the charge would be dissipated and grounded before it entered the manifold.
