Perpetuum Mobile or “Ever mover” can be made easily if we accept that the “ever” is just cca one or two thousand years. So a simple river driven water mill made of matters those can keep up for a long time can represent such structure.
I share here great simple solution to demonstrate how works an almost perpetuum mobile as an electric machine. Its most important parts are the permanent springs. These ones responsable for the permanency plus the electric-mechanic feedback. I hope that my drawing is understandable:
But we can power these great structures more with clock’s mechanics in bigger size that compairs to the energies of the given system. This structure or system can move easilly and economically like a mechanical watch can do. This also means as far as I know, a solution of those little-big problems of Physics. Probably Einstein’s quote “I should have become a watchmaker” was referred to this. But it can be imagined that Chaplin’s Modern times film also referred to this. However it is very serious theme.
With this solution can make movement of the bicycle and other vehicle easier and economical, not only water mill, of course. It is easily presumable that the mechanical computers were made from this solution. And very similary to this, the almost the latest announcement of Volvo about its new flywheel motor. (60000 rpm, 25% boost to mpg, etc.)
Driving Volvo’s KERS Flywheel Hybrid Prototype: What It’s Like
Hopefully many inventions will use “timeless” these great solutions!
On the Youtube.com the people have been uploading many of interesting things in question:
It is from hungarian news service – yesterday I published a post related with a news about Valentino Rossi that just turned out as false one. So that was not my fault. So we have political problems as well, right?
I would like to put rather carefully:
On May 7-11th, 2013 culminated the year-long celebrations of the 50th anniversary of Lamborghini held in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy, – according to its official website:
– and abroad as well.
It is still recommended to visit at the company’s website to have a look at photos and videos of its famous supersport cars. For example, at this great Aventador:
So, I hope it is not too late to say:
Congratulations! And Happy Birthday to the Company!
The one thing – can be heard from the air, as you know, on June 26, 2013 – is that the power supply by bigger torque can be more efficient in vehicles than it widely applied.
However it is widely admitted that buses or trucks have not so many horsepowers in their engines than in the other simple cars’ ones, but they can really carry more burdens.
The trick is the applying the Physics knowledge better creating bigger gear shift with implemantating bigger pinions which make bigger force with bigger torque. As it solved in an average bicycle. It’s simple, isn’t it?
Furthermore, if it uses less power so it is more efficient then it needs less gasolin and makes less dust. So it is cheaper and cleaner to use than most best vehicles! Great to know it. But most of people do not mind with this theory and it must be proven by proper practical measurements and tests, however it can be more exciting and important than a race on TV!
A magnificent French solution for car doors…
Peugeot 1007 has two power sliding doors, according to the Wikipedia:
And as far as I know, they made the doors with option of remote control.
It is a pity that this practical door type is less prevalent in carmaker industry!
Not only at desingings of Jet fighters and Rockets are important to observe the fundamental laws of Physics and Aerodynamics (and Hydrodynamics). But at submarines’, buses’, trucks’, trains’, trams’, airplanes’ designings. However, it is not really seems nowadays, the EU wants to change now at trucks’ as you can read in my BLOG:
Nevertheless, some passenger planes have been modifed finally as probably you know from the news.
This basic selection is based on the Kinetic energy theory and its Mathematical backgrounds. In classical mechanics, the kinetic energy of a non-rotating object of mass m traveling at a speed v is ½ mv². (Source: Wikipedia). And if we want to approximate the energy at a high speed than mass m will not count, however the speed will be basicly quadratic. And the graphical solution of the quadratic term is a hyperbola. The hyperbola is one of the four kinds of conic section, formed by the intersection of a plane and a cone. So, at the highest speed result is a triangle. And this shape is used by, for example, sharks in nature to fight against to water resistance, too.
However, sharks’ shape should not be used as a template for airplanes and Jetfighters often, because it is a fish, and water has other physical parameteres than air. This problem can be more noticeable, for example at the USA made Lockheed F-104 Starfighter jet where designers added smaller surface wings. So the jet eventually earned a reputation as a “Widowmaker”.
Here it is read: http://www.militaryfactory.com/aircraft/detail.asp?aircraft_id=113
As this turned out only the Germans could use this jet type, and after neither them did it. (“It is a gift with love from the USA.” as generally used to say in James Bond style of its Thatcher era.)
As I can suppose, not just this type of airplanes has this problem.
It can be also big issue the planes’ weakness. As shown bellow, a picture of a news, just a bird can cause a big hurt in these vehicles. Regardless that bird wanted to be a pilot killer or not, I think it is quite dangerous to fly with these machines, not saying about their falling.
Seeing the picture, several ducks could fly over this aircraft?!
Back to the mathematical solution, the triangle shape can be applied at designings of tyres as well as to their profiles and their grips. I have made a simple figure to demostrate the proper profiles as I imagined. It is sure, for the sake of best solution, it is needed to take more counts, simulations and tests. So, the figure can be seemed bellow:
Notwithstanding the provisions of some top races, the slowings must be realized by the brakes mostly, not by tyres. So brake discs sould be created such like clutch discs to be more roughened. It is more efficient when the two roughened surfaces involve in the friction, not the only one of them. However, it has been also ignored yet, by competents.
By the way, the profile of the above mentioned tyres can influence other important industrial sectors, such as building construction, and bus, plane, and train chasies designings. Some carmakers according to the recent news now
And weak tyres can be better at high speeds as at racing bicycle’s. Although it has been also forgotten by top competents, yet. ∞
The Trabant is an old, former East German car brand from Zwickau, Saxony.
According to the Wikipedia:
“In 2008, Time magazine rated the Trabant as one of the 50 worst cars ever made.”
“and it is said that it might symbolize of the sickness of the former East Germany’s system.”
However, the Trabant 601 still has advantages to our recently most advanced cars, namely it had use
two-stroke engine. I think that “the specialists” confuse advantages of four-stroke engine with flywheel engine’s and therefore they do not see the two-stroke engine’s as better. And Trabant had bearings and needle bearings for piston pins, according to this site:
The needle bearings can reduce the friction much better than the oil only. Nevertheless, they rearly provided to engines this good piece part.
The Wikipedia also mentioned that
“In the West, much has been written about the Trabant, mostly negative: to comedic effect, emphasis was placed on the shortcomings of the Trabantt”
however the problem of the Communism still is in our world, after its fall. The HONDA S600 had needle bearings, in 1964. However, it is forgotten somehow. Although, with these technologies HONDA won the first F1 race as it was written in the following quotation:
“Made of aluminum, it features roller-chain-driven dual overhead cams, hemispherical cross-flow heads, four Keihin side-draft carbs, and a built-up crankshaft that uses seven caged, needle-roller bearings for the mains and connecting-rod big-ends. This setup enables a 9500-rpm redline and can safely spin to above 11,000 revs! (If this sounds like Formula 1 technology, remember that Honda entered F1 racing in 1963, developing a unique 1.5-liter V-12 engine and chassis that won its first race in 1965.)
According to recent news, so Honda was asked to produce motor to Mclaren after Mercedes motor usage driving its racing cars.
It is strange a little bit.
This means the recent West system’s sickness to the former East Germany’s! The causes of these failures and sins can be searched among the Matrix and its leaderships.
Many car makers deliver their engine with turbo for supercharging nowadays. However, the compressor usage does not need to use the engine’s exhaust gas which is choking the engine’s power and makes less efficient combustion, so it is much toxic and expensive. Although compressors need other driving source, for example electric such as independent electric motor driving or mechanic such as belt or chain driving, but these drivings need less energy as I think because electric motors are more efficient than internal combustion engines.
This problem is almost same old as the carmaking itself, (and its other problems). So it is the time to change this after all(or rather these).
It is a good news that the Mercedes makes – not only – its “flagship”, Mercedes Benz CL 63 AMG, with compressor.
One man compared previously the automotive industry to information technology from the aspect of speed of development. His results could cause frustration to those who were satisfied with their vehicles. However as I used to mention that the problems have been almost the same, unfortunatelly, since decades or more.
Here you can see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turbo webpage, but I do not like its expressions – not only in this car tool theme – which can cause ambiguities to the people as far as I know. For example the webpage mention water injection to reducing temperature, but as I know it is primarily for growing mass of the combustion.
This is a good news for car makers and all the people.
