Pseudo Solid Rotor Element For SMOT And Other Motors
« on: April 12, 2005, 10:39:30 PM »
I'm looking for people to replicate my tests results from a design I have come up with. Should we have been using square moving elements in the SMOT and other designs? The reason being the if the two squares match up even enough, then the two pieces could act as a pseudo solid with respect to being pulled away from a magnetic field. See my drawing on my old web page. There would be some eddy current drag, but that can be eliminated with laminating and materials technology. The element in the sticky spot could be moved out and the incoming element take it's place as the two act as a solid till the first element is out of the field, then it is free to move away from the fixture.
The seam between the two should not cause any drag to speak of.
Try it at home between two magnets with a solid bar 2 inches long and then try it with two
1 inch bars that are touching and see if there is any difference.
