The proper drawing of your red box would follow the outline of the surface of the outer liquid layer, I think, because that is the sealed surface. It rises and sinks, of course, but that's no problem as far as the boundary condition goes.

I looked at it two slightly different ways.  But both result in the same Energy Balance in the end, so I don't know if it matters much if one is correct or not.  But I would like to know.

The first way is what you described above.  It makes sense, but having the red box change volume is a bit counter intuitive.  So I also thought about fixing the red box in the initial state as shown below.  Now when the water charge is introduced to cause the configuration in the center diagram, water leaves the red box through the upper surface of the "step" in the box across the outer annulus.  That water is a PE that flows right back into the red box when the system is allowed to rise, so it sums to zero with the energy that was lost when the water left in the first place.

So by either method, I end up back to the same Energy Balance that I used for the second attempt at the 2-layer ZED analysis.

You have not answered if you agree that the output energy is correctly established by the volume of the outer riser (boxed in yellow) that rises up through the top of the red box boundary.  That volume starts rising at a Pout that is calculated from the buoyant forces of the pod and risers shown in the middle charged state diagram, and would presumably drop to zero if the ZED were to come back into equilibrium (neutral buoyancy) in the final position on the right.

Things don't always fit in little boxes...............
You were absolute in your statements.  Are you trying to weasel in modifications now?
Quote

Let me be clear - Our investors will not part with there part ownership in our company - none of them.
Ah, pay attention to the language.  Will and want are quite different.
Quote

They have been offered 10X returns by out side investors...........wanting in........ and our members flat walked away. It does not take long to realize how well our company is growing.......
Again, language matters.  Those who have stayed, have stayed.  How many have asked to get out, and/or have gotten out?
Quote

The idea that any of them have been harmed is ignorance. (beside the fact that about 30% of our owners are engineers -good ones).
Any trained engineer who thinks that there is energy to be gained by raising and dropping weights cyclically is incompetent.  Full stop.  The incompetence may be a temporary induced condition, but it is incompetence just the same.
Quote

I refused to let any of my friends and family support us unless they verified it was non risk money - and I have gifted much to needy friends and family.
Only the records will tell whether that is true or not.  And your record vis-a-vis truth is not so good.
Quote

We never asked for money - and we always had exactly what we need to pay for parts, tests, legal fee's - tools.
Really?  Again records would be the judge.
Quote

We did not buy cars - houses - jewelry, take vacations, or anything that would harm our ability or threaten the value of our members.
So it's OK to take money under false premises if you don't spend it "lavishly"?
Quote

We built the product and the company.
You've built an illusion on a stack of lies.  There is no product.  Your technology claims are false.
Quote
........................

We "are" fully funded............... "Turnkey funded" and no investor has been paid off from other investors.
Oh, this is new "Wayne speak".  Your previous declarations were that you were both "fully funded" and were not seeking any new funds.  Since the company has no source of revenue other than investors, either no investors have been cashed out, or your statement is false.  The business records are again the better evidence of fact.
Quote

Paid off? you assume thay don't want to be part of our future............your mistake - your box.
There is no future for HER / Zydro, because there is not now and never was the technology that you claim.
Quote

One day - you may realize the gross misdirection - harm done - by your good intentions - to the good people - on this web site.
The harm that has been done is your selling investment in a pipe dream that you know to be false, or are reckless in ignoring that it is false.  The Acts, 1933, and 1934 do not distinguish between the two.
Quote

Or not - I have always hoped your intentions may have been meant for good, but you have no excuse.
No, Wayne Travis, you have no excuse.  The physics is painfully simple:  Gravity is conservative.  You have no counter evidence.
Quote

.......................

The gross error by critics on this subject has been "Stark faith in what was presumed "known" - and lack of due effort and discovery."
You have not made any physical discovery.  You have discovered how a yarn skillfully told can separate people from their cash even when the yarn is utterly and entirely preposterous.  Just as many people have fallen for scams claiming they've won a big lottery they never entered, there are people foolish enough to fall for the idea that there is free energy in a pail of water.
Quote

The demands that you be handed a operating system - after you ignored the originals, ignored original analysis, ignored replications - tells me one thing - misdirection. I am just not sure if thier is more than one puppet master leading the way.
There it is!  Yes, try and shift your burden of proof onto others.  No Mr. Wayne you have no sausages.  Just hope that isn't prophetically because someone of the temperament of Lorena Bobbitt has been burned by your shameless lies.
Quote

Demands that you control the education - of what you did not understand - was arrogant. While you called me arrogant for trying to teach you....
All that you teach is the age old story that if the tale is pitched properly, some people will believe almost anything, no matter how preposterous.
Quote

HERE IS THE SAD POINT:

A fraction of the time spent slandering us, a fraction of that energy spent - would have been more than enough to share in our discover - don't give me more misdirection and excuses.
That's right Wayne Travis:  Stay on point.  Keep insisting that you have a scientific discovery when you don't and never did.  For you it's staying on message.  For a prosecutor it is evidence of scienter.

Your spreadsheet appears to be calculating energy by a series of linear adds and subtracts based on average pressure.  That yields incorrect results.  Integration is necessary.

Thanks, MarkE.

Your example is using a CoE system and can never be > 100% efficiency. In my other spreadsheet for the flow between 2 Archimedes using the same energy calculations, you can change the yellow parameters all you want and it never goes over 100%. That not an override, just the math. So, If the energy calculations is the cause of >100% in the 2 Zed , I would be able to get over 100% in the 2 Archimedes system.

The only subtraction is for the Average PSI differential value. Without that the formulas would just use Pin average * Vin per cycle.

Since that seems to be causing your issue, we could remove using the differential and just compare the single Zed to the single Archimedes, where the Zed still shows a higher efficiency than the Archimedes.

The current 1Arch sheet has an input advantage and still is less efficient at 48.13% to the 1Zed at 73.76%. So I'm going to modify and resend, making the input volume the same and combining them on one sheet to make it easier to compare the two.

Hope you're willing to continue, as I'm learning a lot about the issue areas.

Larry, both the ZED and the "Archimedes" scheme rigidly conform to Archimedes' Principle.  The fundamental problem for both the scheme using an insert and a scheme without an insert is that sloshing water around between filled and partially filled columns throws away a big percentage of the input energy.  Using inserts reduces the amount of water moved around and therefore reduces the losses.  A crude analogy is where one drives a car with one's foot on the brake: very inefficient, compared to driving applying less pressure on the brake: less inefficient, but still bad.  There is an parallel to this situation in electronics where one charges multiple capacitors to different voltages and then connects the capacitors together.  The energy relationships areas described by the same form of differential equations.

The next logical step is for you to calculate the energy applied and the energy that you recover during your cycle.  The general form for work changing the water level in a column is:

Work_applied = Area*(StartingPressure*(EndingHeight - StartingHeight) + 0.5*PressureChange/UnitHeight*(EndingHeight^2 - StartingHeight^2))

If the column shrinks then the Ending Height is less than the starting height, and work is released with a resulting negative value.
If the column grows then the Ending Height is greater than the starting height, and work is added with a resulting positive value.

@mondrasek:
I may have been kidding about the color blindness (I actually have fine color vision according to Ishihara and other tests, even though my father was a deuteranope) but nevertheless I can't easily tell the Red from the Magenta when they are closely adjacent in your drawings. How about using a contrasting color for the "red" box outline?

Hilarious. Michael Teague doesn't seem ever to have heard of Travis or Zydro whatever. Or maybe he just can't talk about it because of the usual boilerplate NDAs. One thing that Travis does have is a lawyer or two, sucking up some of the cash that's leaking out of the ZEDs.

http://www.ok.gov/energy/
http://www.ok.gov/energy/documents/Teague%20-%20Oklahoma%20Energy%20&%20Environment%20Secretary.pdf

Oklahoma is a major oil and natural gas producing State. Methinks Travis might want to consider who has the deepest pockets and who has the most to lose, or gain, should he ever succeed in demonstrating what he claims.

But he's safe from the minions of Big Oil, because he cannot and will not ever be able to produce any energy over and above what his noisy leaky kludge is supplied with in the first place.

TK, I switched the red to a soft blue in Paint (I'm on the road now and don't have the big 2nd monitor I would use for CAD).  Hopefully it works better for you.

Here's another few interesting links I found. The U of OK has a world-class engineering school at its Norman campus.

Soil dynamics, rock mechanics, soil structure interaction, flow through porous media, constitutive laws of engineering materials (testing and modeling), mine system design and ground control, bridge approach settlements, expert systems, application of numerical techniques to complex geotechnical engineering problems, earthquake engineering, and geotechnical aspects of hazardous waste disposal.

The Norman campus is about 35 miles from Chickasha.

Why do you suppose they are concentrating on mining energy resources, biofuels and other things like that, instead of buoyancy drives that make huge percentages OU, like Travis has claimed?

I know why, and so do you.

Quote
Dear Professor Zaman,

Greetings and felicitations! I am writing on behalf of a few interested researchers who are looking into the claims of one Wayne Travis, dba "Zydro Energy LLC" located in Chickasha, OK, a short drive away from your Norman campus. Travis claims to have a mechanical, buoyancy driven system that "captures gravity" and which produces more energy output, by a large margin, than is input, and that will run itself with no input but will still produce usable "net" output energy. Needless to say, this scheme violates the law of Conservation of Energy as well as the conservative nature of the gravitational field. Travis has quite an operation going in Chickasha, he apparently has investors with deep pockets, and we are concerned that his claims might not actually be valid.

http://www.hydroenergyrevolution.com/

I know you are very busy, but you may be amused by looking over this PowerPoint presentation, attached, that Travis presented to prospective investors in late 2010 or early 2011. I am wondering if you might have a stray graduate student looking for a thesis project, who may be able to look into this issue a bit more deeply. I myself cannot travel to Chickasha personally, but it may be convenient for someone from the Norman campus to go and have a look.

Thanks for your time and consideration, and I am looking forward to hearing your opinions about the claims of Wayne Travis and Zydro Energy LLC.

Sincerely, I remain

Here is a basic diagram that shows how to calculate the potential energy that is in a single column of water.  The constants are set for 20C temperature.  One can derive the energy correctly by multiplying the average pressure by the total volume.  As the head changes, so both change the volume and the pressure, causing the energy to change as the square of the head.

ETA: LarryC noticed that the multiplication was wrong on the middle numbers.    I have updated the drawing to fix that.  The energy progression is 1X, 4X, 16X, for volumes of 1X, 2X, and 4X respectively.

Does your diagram represent your actual test system?

Back at home now.  I travel every Wednesday, but it does mean I get home a little early, and since it is trash night that works to my advantage.

This ideal model is completely unrelated to the physical test system I built.  I drew it up for the expressed purpose of performing a Mathematical Energy Balance Analysis per the methods I had recently learned from posts by MarkE.  The dimensions were chosen to simplify some of the expected calculations, or were random.  However, I did choose a 3:1 height to diameter ratio for the pod since that was much closer to the general guidelines given by Wayne so long ago.  And I had found that a higher ratio should have benefited my previous build that was only about a 1:1 from observations of that experiment.

Other than that, this is a pure Mathematical Analysis of a generalized random representation of a ZED.  I just wanted to see what the math would show.  I was surprised with the results.  And so I asked for a double check.  On both the math and the analysis process.  So far I have learned of one mistake in an assumption I used in my first attempt that I have corrected, and also another in the whole Energy Balance process concept in general (the proper "red box" you helped with) that is good knowledge to have, but did not impact the previous calcs AFAICS.

Good for you TK.  I have been seriously considering calling one of those journalists I linked to a week ago.  I have the flu right now and if I am home tomorrow during the day and feeling up to it I may call.  It may be possible to put fire into somebody's belly and get them to do some investigative journalism.

if we don't get an answer to question on 131 from Wayne we can take it
as a no I would assume.
