Also hydrofoils create too much "downwards" thrust and maybe they can be tweaked for better propulsion and less lift.

Numerous power applications, especially those for turbo-machinery, both past and present are described and discussed providing technical information and analytic tools to help designers determine if hydrogen peroxide is the optimal choice for power applications. Modern usage of hydrogen peroxide with turbo-machinery is discussed to illustrate the inherent advantages of this working fluid.https://www.jtmcdaniel.com/walter_turbine.htmlWalter achieved his remarkable speeds by using Perhydrol, a nearly pure hydrogen peroxide, as an oxydizer. This was run through a catalyzing system, which broke down the hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) into hydrogen and oxygen, in the process producing high pressure steam and oxygen at a very high temperature. The creation of the steam used up both of the hydrogen atoms and one of the oxygen, leaving a free oxygen atom in the mixture. Since the temperature of the gases was hot enough to sustain combustion, diesel fuel was injected, which used up the free oxygen atom as it burned. This increased both the heat and pressure of the steam. The steam was then used to power a turbine, which combined elements of both gas and Parsons (steam) turbine technology.Unfortunately for the Kriegsmarine—but probably fortunately for the Allies—the Walter system had nearly as many problems as benefits. The Perhydrol fuel was extremely corrosive, requiring the use of special fuel lines.
>>1572862http://hydrogen-peroxide.us/history-UK/hydrogen-peroxide-for-propulsion-and-power_PR_Stokes-1998.pdfGermany, at war in 1940, accelerated the research and development it had directed through the 1930's to a new source of energy and its application. Applied earlier, it would probably have sustained Germany's early victories; by advancing technology in key areas, it might have changed the ultimate course of the war. This paper is concerned with the use of hydrogen peroxide at high strength, known in Britain as High Test Peroxide or HTP. Prime demonstrations of its potential are that in Autumn 1940 the German experimental Submarine V 80 attained an underwater speed of 28 knots compared with the 8 knots of conventional diesel-electric vessels and, in Autumn 1941, the Me 163a a rocket fighter flew at 624 mph when contemporary advanced operational fighter aircraft sought to attain 400 mph. The growth and application of the technology of hydrogen peroxide propulsion continued throughout the War. It was followed by withdrawal to the shadows of the international defence industry with an occasional public reminder of its potential.https://www.hydrogencarsnow.com/index.php/hydrogen-fuel-production/hydrogen-peroxide-fuel-for-automobiles/For instance, researchers at Purdue University have used hydrogen peroxide and an aluminum alloy to power a fuel cell that one day could be used in a car or vehicle. Hydrogen peroxide can also be electrolyzed like water to produce hydrogen and oxygen, which can then be run through either an internal combustion engine or a fuel cell to power the vehicle. A third method is to use hydrogen peroxide to fuel a turbine engine that will be used to power the vehicle.Comments: Ammonia seems to be a better carrier of hydrogen, not so good for combustion, but somewhat hard to synthesize.Hydrogen Peroxide seems great for combustion, don't know how fit it is for fuel cells and it seems easier to synthesize.

>>1566172Air travel should only be used in long distances or where there is an ocean between. Electric air travel do has no reason to live. Electric ga maybe.
You would need a really long plug
>>1566172i want conversion kits for GA airplanes coupled with a solar generating fabric so the entire skin is generating power. get low? land and wait. i imagine it would significantly extend range. i think once battery tech about doubles in capacity/lbs youll start to see a lot more electric aviation, operating costs are so much lower.
>>1578012Even a whole skin of solar on a small plane wouldn't do much at all. Solar cells aren't anywhere close to efficient enough to actually extend range in any meaningful way.
>>1578012Harbor Air already has commercial service with electric DHC-2s. I think we'll see Twin Otter size electric planes in commercial use by the end of the decade.
>>1566172How about using a sky rail system? That would solve the problem of keeping the plane powered without having to rely on batteries and even allow longer bodies, creating a more efficient long-distance solution.
>>1566172Gay jews and their goons are complaining a lot about emissions as part of their psyop to push higher energy prices and shitty products based on rare metals.It seems there's one solution that has been overlooked which is apparently simple:https://dieselnet.com/tech/engine_water.phphttps://globaljournals.org/GJRE_Volume12/3-The-Effect-of-High-Water-Content-of.pdfAmong many others besides catalysts in the exhaust. It looks like more fuel efficiency results in higher NOx emissions, so this is a stealthy way to "jew" cars into using more (((oil))).Certain fuel additives (hydrogen peroxide, hydrogen, ...) can also aid in reducing emissions and also trigger the jews.
>>1578393Fuck off back to /pol/ or better yet just kill yourself.
>>1578393A previous comment about emissions control (including the replies):https://archive.nyafuu.org/n/thread/1536572/#1554851Changing the amount of oxygen and nitrogen in the air intake also helps.>>1578396OK, jew.
>>1578017I disagree, there is a lot of surface area on a plane. And even if it only extends flight time 10% being able to land in remote areas and camp for a day and then make another 2-300mile hop or fly around would be really, really cool. Flexible solar is just getting decent enough to think about, id guess the Oratex people would be the ones to make it happen and get it certified. half the surface area of a 170 for instance would easily be able to generate a couple thousand watts of 24v power and not having the rpm restrictions of combustion engines i assume you could throttle way back.
>>1578019yeah its so cool, way more horsepower available on takeoff and the operating cost makes aviation so much more affordable. i think operating cost was like 8% of piston. no avgas, no overhauls, no oil. brilliant.
>>1578421You don't know basic high school math then.>>1578423And about 30 minutes of range, absurd weight and volume of the batteries, when the (((Lithium))) battery degrades too much you are going to spend a fortune replacing it, only works on really small airplanes for more range...If jews die and metal-air batteries or others become more common this will improve, but it will always be way behind a proper fuel.
Electric air travel with batteries will be great for GA trainers and clubs, as most of their flights are pattern work anyway.Electric motorgliders are already becoming common despite really bad reliability (yes electric fans, electric power has plenty of components that can fail and set things on fire). But this is likely to improve with time.As for commercial aircraft, hydrogen is just a bad meme, there's nothing wrong with using fuel. If you want 0 CO2 emissions you can synthethise fuel by consuming CO2 from the air, the technology already exists (not used because it's pointless). Pure electric transport might work for short flights between local airfields, but it seems rather situational. Flying drones to carry packaging might actually lose out to self driving electric cars, too.
>>1578702The reason for discussing about the use of hydrogen, ammonia, hydrogen peroxide and other carbon-less fuels is because hydrocarbons are hard to synthesize.

Will practical application of this tech lead to refinement of the technology, of course. Should we have been moonshoting this stuff accross all types of transport for the last 20 years, obviously. But it appears the fossil fuel industry is living rent free in your head just as much as it does in our government. inb4 batteries start fires, so does fuel and batteries are little less likely to burn you alive if you crash. Just look at the early history of aircaft motors, horrify really and we wont have 5% of that developing this new kind of propulsion. Continntal and Lycoming are dying industries and probably filled with short sighted boomers who cant think 10 years ahead, let alone 20.

>>1578984It's steam reforming, the process itself is rather simple, especially if it's done to produce methane but also can be used for more complex hydrocarbons - the nazis it to produce fuel from coal, for example. Using co2 from the air just requires more power, and you could use say a nuclear power plant to provide it and make the whole process carbon neutral if desired.The whole reason hydrogen is being looked at is because emitting co2 is "bad" , regardless of the process.
>>1579886If you want to synthesize fuel directly from energy sources instead of relying on organic matter.You can use it on a high power renewable microgrid and make fuel locally, for example, but ammonia seems more complex.

>>1580142I thought about it and it seems, according to the deleted research articles I posted here before, hydrogen powered internal combustion engines are competitive with some fuel cells in efficiency when used as generators.And even if not used as generators, it's a very smooth migration towards a fuel that is easy to synthesize and obtained from many different sources.

>>1580679>>1580705There's a better way of doing it using combined cycle engines, which is essencially the combinatio n of an internal combustion engine and a steam engine powered by heat from the exhaust.It's already a reality for gas powered power stations, and the tecnology should be easy to apply in ships.

>>1576730https://www.metal-am.com/u-s-army-research-lab-to-license-nanogalvanic-aluminium-powder-for-hydrogen-generation/The laboratory stated that the powder has many advantages, as a potential energy source which is stable as an alloy powder, is non-toxic, and is environmentally friendly. Because it can be transported in powder or tablet form and combined with any available water source, the discovery has the potential to eliminate reliance on high-pressure hydrogen cylinders.It is also said to be extremely efficient as an energy source, with 1 kg of the powder generating 4.4 kWh of energy – enough to power ten 60 W incandescent light bulbs for more than seven hours, or the equivalent number of LED bulbs for over fifty hours.--A good Lithium battery has 0.2 kWh per kg of energy. The only similar technologies that could compete with this are aluminum-air (and other metal-air) batteries and maybe other forms of hydrogen storage.But it's still hard to recharge (it can't be done locally, it requires a complex reactor, ...) and the same applies to high energy density metal-air as far as I know. Other forms of storing hydrogen seem to avoid this problem.

>>1585784I'm not understanding how it would have any business future in the first place. The cost per hp is ridiculous, the fuel consumption is average and there's no existing plane designed for it.It makes much more sense to adapt car engines to aircraft use, which is why there are companies that actually do it. Especially turbo diesels, which have benefits from fuel consumption and fuel cost.
I don't really see the point of investing in the R&D when you can just spend that money on rail and reduce emissions even more while keeping current airplanes the same.However if a spin-off technology from the electric truck industry helps it along it sounds reasonable.
>>1585835If you read about the original product, it was a replacement for turboprops (mostly PT6's). It was way more affordable than them and 30% more efficient.

>>1585346Ultra-High-Efficiency Aluminum Production Cellhttps://www.osti.gov/biblio/1156937It's very efficient for something that is close to a fuel.
>>1585904That's the problem with most car engine conversions - they make the engine run at max power when they should make the engine run at max fuel efficiency, using max torque for climbs. That means there will be a weight penalty compared to dedicated aero engines, but lets the engine work at a level it is designed to do continuously. And the weight penalty is acceptable with the higher efficiency of modern airframes.Although that made slightly more sense, i guess there is also the problem of people who want a jet turbine rather than a piston engine just for the status.
>>1586182And the amount of continuous power a car needs is really small, so this can't scale beyond small airplanes. There are many other engines to choose form, but they aren't as accessible as car engines.One of the many reasons aerospace is so stagnant except for the lower ranges (experimental, LSA, light jets, ...) are too many homos.

A peak thrust augmentation level of 80.5% was achieved.
>batteries are heavy>more weight needs more lift>more lift means more drag>more drag needs more energy>more energy = more batterieskek, it's not happening. Hydrogen is the future. We just need a green source of plentiful electricity. E.g. geothermal, nuclear, etc to produce it.
>>1588014> kek(((Your))) new narrative is pretending it can't be made from cheap or distributed sources, then shove expensive sources like nuclear or natural gas.Also depending on the storage method it can be made in your own home, which is something your mafia will desperately try to prevent from happening. Same for any energy source that outputs too much power and isn't kosher.
>>1587793Other interesting comments about this technology: it was proposed replacing classic turbine generator technology with 8 alternating PDEs arranged in a cylinder and a air turbine in the exhaust.Other patent uses PDEs inside a regular turbojet to convert the deflagration process into a detonation.It can be made shorter by using spiral structures instead of cylinders.I think the shape of the combustion chamber, exhaust nozzle, ignition methods, where to use the PDEs, combine multiple units... are still up to debate.Current prototypes have very high specific impulse and about 1/9:of the thrust necessary for a small private airplane.Pulsed propulsion can have superior performance than continuous solutions, my previous thread have a few arguments for this idea. Maybe the detonation frequency can be low to take advantage of this.Maybe rotating detonation engines aren't worth the hassle now, with the technology still in its infancy and it's absurdly high complexity.One kit airplane based on a Burt Rutan design, called Borealis, already flew using a PDE made of car parts, the airframe could stand the stress but the noise was insane (which can be improved by suitable materials, shapes, arrangements and frequency).
>>1588022Maybe being exclusively fed by air isn't required, it seems oxygen also can be stored in convenient ways:https://www.iflscience.com/chemistry/new-material-absorbs-oxygen-stores-it-later/Of course both hydrogen and oxygen storage must have the proper output flow rates, efficient and adequate methods for recharging and discharging the storage unit, ... to be used in this application.
>>1588014This also happens in the shitty giant EVs that are being pushed by the media and the "famiglia".The lastest hydrogen car that was released a few months ago is 250 kg lighter than a similar battery electric car, even using compressed hydrogen as the storage method.It also lacks a more advanced electric drivetrain (high power battery/capacitor, intelligent power electronics and more refined use of motors) mostly because the technology is immature, which would also make it also lighter, faster, more efficient and safer.
>>1588028For example using two electric motors instead of a differential connected to a lot of heavy stuff:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQMO8boD5bgTorque vectoring instead of gears (or instead of nothing), or using small gears, or hub motors (which always attract the exact same replies nitpicking about it for some reason), hybrid capacitors instead of giant toy car batteries for more instant power and better regenerative breaking, ...
It'd be pretty cool considering that fuel is the major expense airlines have to take into consideration. Don't count on those savings being passed on to the consumer tho.

A hydrogen car usually has about 5.5 kg of hydrogen stored and uses 700 bar with carbon fiber canisters, which are expensive and heavy.
>>1588053How the hydrogen is stored in a current car with 400 mile range. The canisters are bullet-proof and if they get a rupture somehow, and you are unlucky enough for them to ignite, they don't burst like batteries, they form an uniform flame exiting the puncture and orientated upwards (because hydrogen is way lighter than air).

>>1588057Another possible weight reduction is reducing the size of the fuel cell pack by increasing its power density, cutting it in half seems to be possible:https://revolution-green.com/third-party-validates-hyzon-motors-fuel-cell-record-peak-power-density-6kw-l/And ammonia, as previously noted, is more energy dense than LOHCs, 6 kg of hydrogen would fit in a regular 40 liter fuel tank with 34 liters of ammonia. As I mentioned before, the only big issue about ammonia is synthesizing it, but there is a lot of ongoing research about this and I hope small scale reactors to be used at home or in small businesses become available sometime:>>1588015So only big energy demands are supplied by bigger corporations and the government.>>1587374>>1587483>>1587505Maybe this technique of adding small external interferences for chemical reactions works for flow batteries and fuels cells.
>>1588421Considering ammonia costs about 600 USD per ton, and you need 28 kg for a full tank (34 liters), a full tank would cost 17 dollars (higher because it isn't bulk), which is competitive with regular fuels.
>>1588426And ammonia is currently made from refined sources of hydrogen (natural gas) instead of water and cheap renewable electricity, organic or plastic waste, scrap metal, shitty oils and coals, ...
>>1588053Metal presses (which are also used for other materials) for small and medium business tend to suck, maybe this is a starting point for something better:Sheet metal forming by using gas imploding detonationhttps://www.osti.gov/etdeweb/biblio/581615Press molds can be milled or printed nowadays and easily tolerate the necessary compression.
Hydrogen fuel cells seem a lot more sensible for airships than airplanes. It's much easier to store hydrogen when you already need a huge gas bag to fly anyway, and there's far less issues with power to weight and fuel consumption.

Anything except shitty solar panels, ridiculously designed wind turbines, nuclear and lithium batteries is a threat to their monopolies.Hydrogen combustion ranges from low efficiency and high power (rockets, turbojets, ...), to moderate efficiency (similar to the lower end of fuel cells) and moderate power (internal combustion engines).Fuel cells can be almost 85% efficient while being compact and reliable, which is very hard to do in a heat engine.

>>1570608why not making propeller aircraft powered by cable. Like trains except without the rails.
>>1590189how much would a more than 1000 km cable weigh?
>>1590199You'd fly low of course.
>>1590201and you would still carry the weight of the cable around, if not in the air, by dragging it across the ground. And that's without getting the damn thing entangled in the first obstacle it sees.If you were talking about wireless power transmission then you might have a point, but then you run with difficult (but not impossible) issues like transmission efficiency, making an effective yet aerodynamic receiver, setting up a widespread network of ground power stations and finally making sure people aren't dying from the intensity of the radiation being broadcasted.
>>1590204wireless transmission is heinously inefficient.A suitable cable wouldn't need to be longer than 100m and would be orders of magnitude lighter than carrying around fuel. In addition you can deliver enormous amounts of power which can in turn drive massive electric motors. In addition those electric motors would be relatively low maintenance compared to turbines and basically there is no reason to build regular trains anymore. It could serve the same role but better, faster and without having to build very expensive rail everywhere. It would just need something similar to high voltage masts dotted around the land. Much less intrusive in the landscape.
>>1590206Are you trying to run an airplane from a mast, like a trolley bus (the only real way to have a 100 m cable connected to an airplane going places)? Because besides still having the visual problems of cables layed out everywhere, and flying lower than many high rise apartment buildings, you'll still have the issue of what happens if the plane has to change direction at any point, since it's teetered to the ground, unable to simply stop and remain still. And unable to turn, since supposing that it's travelling at 200 m/s - 400 knots - (turboprop speeds - going slower requires wider wingpans), it's gonna need a 4 km radius/ 8km diameter to be able to turn back without crushing the occupants. And not be workable for flights over the ocean.How are you not seeing this is a terrible idea is beyond me.
>>1590204You could use (hybrid) capacitors and periodically dock and recharge some VTOL on the side of buildings, make it lighter and more efficient, glide instead of cruise the aircraft, follow beneficial air currents even if cruising, find a way to harvest enough energy from air friction, the sun (classic photovoltaic panels aren't enough), the cold air around the aircraft, wind (in case of airships), ...Wireless transmission is always horrible, it could be based on LASERs, MASERs, non-audible sound or electromagnetism if the transmitters stayed in high altitude and had a method to direct the energy.
>>1590214This board is filled with sociopathic trash posting nonsense.

>>1590214Aircraft, helicopters or hybrids.And yes, like a trolley.
>>1568128go talk to china about your carbon emissions and also you will never be a woman
>>1590214You are thinking the idea is to replace intercontinental flight. It's not.The idea is to basically have a better and cheaper alternative to the train in the form of low altitude flying with electric aircraft and helicopters or hybrids.
>>1590264This isn't a bad idea, takeoff consumes a lot of energy. A well designed conector could be safe too.>>1590288There are ways to store enough energy for flights like this one. If you want continuous power from an external source without loss, you would have to think about all the issues and try to invent a modified solution, such as overhead cables in high altitude or many aircrafts towing an airship full of hydrogen with many cables connecting both via fuel cells. Or another idea.
>>1590386I mean the overhead cables would be supported by balloons.
>>1590387the most unpractical idea ive ever read
>>1590443It was an attempt at improving the original idea, my idea was using less jewish batteries or fuels (some of them listed here or in my previous threads), save energy or harvest energy locally:>>1590218Another promise from a previous era before the great gay jewing of 2012:https://newatlas.com/hyundai-exoskeletons-scooter-2017-ces/47233/https://newatlas.com/honda-leasing-walking-assist-device-exoskeleton/27681/This seems very interesting and the YouTube channel of this company is crazy:https://www.festo-didactic.com/int-en/learning-systems/stem/
>>1590386>>1590387It sounds like an awesome concept but if it is feasible or not is another matter. The resistance on cables that long is prohibitive. The weight of the cables too much to be held up by balloons.
>>1590628Neither of those is a problem. Besides the whole teetering issues said above, by hanging wires on ballons you make them vulnerable to winds, you won't even be able to keep them straight.
>>1590658I don't think they need to be too straight or static, this can be compensated in how the aircraft would have contact with the cables, and balloons can have aerodynamic (disc-like, for example) shapes and stability controls.Still not using it is a good idea.>>1585327>>1588118Metal-air flow batteries like those are very hard to beat in a practical sense, it can be recharged quickly and outside the vehicle, its contents are renewed on each charge, it is similar to replacing most of the batteries with new ones except for a few components, it's costly to recharge but the massive reduction in weight makes it worthwhile and it seems to be getting better at it, it's mostly made of cheap materials and the fluid is easy to manufacture.In a regular battery both charging and recharging apparatus are replicated inside each small cell, though they share most components, and they operate on a fixed content, which degrades over time, having no way to easily replace it.It is somewhat comparable to using hydrogen bounded to liquids and powders in energy content (about one third or half of the energy content instead of a minuscule fraction of it), but way less flexible.

>>1566172I don't believe in electric powered flight, and i think it's only because of brute force and successfull marketing Tesla seems as a viable option. Much like the picture of the Airbus concepts, i'm much more inclined to support the hydrogen option for both flight and vehicles. But people seem to be the hurdle, most uneducated just remembers hydrogen as the thing that explodes and kills, and electric as a safe resource, that we have in our walls too. Somebody needs to figure out how to change that image, as people don't care about stuff such as akkumulators (or batteries with s for plural, *sigh*) having a horrible energy density to weight ratio, and unviable resource industry, when stuff labeled as hydrogen has to potential to kill thousands, if not millions, each time a car drive over a bump in the road.
>>1593099Normies don't care about being environmentally friendly, neither the jews behind this bullshit, because all it would take to do it would be forcing fuels to be properly filtered and engines to have better catalysts and slight modifications.But there are advantages here that aren't being discussed in technologies that aren't Lithium crap. Low noise, very low maintenance, high reliability, cheap running costs, maybe more affordable cars in the future (small EVs are already very cheap in Asia), potential for cutting dependency on (((oil))) and decentralizing energy production, or not even paying for energy anymore, it can easily integrate very advanced safety features, it can be used by smaller garages to retrofit existing vehicles or create custom ones much easier than existing technology, ...Safety features that are very expensive in mechanical drivetrains but affordable in electric ones include: torque vectoring, ABS, traction control, slippage prevention in extreme situations, motor and power supply redundancy so if one part of the car breaks down, the rest goes on normally, ...Most (sometimes all) of those practical advantages also apply to hydrogen and other alternative fuels. Or even to fuel cell vehicles using regular fuels.
>>1593154Real solutions to the problem aren't even being discussed:https://www.eng-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=287891In a normal diesel engine, even when the chamber as a whole is overall lean, combustion is actually occurring near stoichiometric adjacent to the surface of droplets, at a temperature that can be much higher than the average temperature in the chamber. This leads to high NOx formation in a traditional diesel engine with a direct-injection layout.How do you reduce that temperature -> first approach was to introduce dilution into the cylinder in the form of exhaust-gas recirculation when the engine is running at part load. Technically it is quite straightforward to do, and EGR has been used on automotive diesel engines since the early 1990's.But there is another approach ... Intentionally delay ignition until after the fuel has substantially evaporated so that it is no longer burning near stoichiometric, but is burning in a lean manner throughout the chamber. And how do you do *that*? Homogeneous-charge compression ignition is one way but it's hard to make it work outside the laboratory. Another way is to use extremely high injection pressure so that the fuel is finely atomized, and do the injection in multiple stages. Sounds like a modern common-rail diesel engine ... or the "supercritical combustion" concept that there was recent discussion of.
>>1593193(continuing)As I understand it, part of the idea is to inject the first shot of fuel well before top-dead-center so that it has lots of time to evaporate and mix with the charge air. That shot of fuel burns in a premixed manner. Then you inject another shot of fuel, which evaporates much more quickly because of the now-raised temperature in the chamber but also when that combustion occurs in a dropwise manner, the surrounding environment is already partially diluted with products of combustion from the first shot of combustion. Then you inject yet another shot and this happens again. This concept is also compatible with EGR for additional dilution to get the peak temperature below the NOx formation threshold.--Also fuel cell vehicles need pure air to work, they are equipped with a filter that can retain particulates and other pollution. I don't know if a similar technology can be used on exhausts.

>>1594798And anything that could improve range never gets implemented either on electric cars or motorcycles:https://newatlas.com/motorcycles/nawa-racer-supercapacitor-ultracapacitor-hubless-electric-motorcycle/(there are other ultra, super, hybrid, ... capacitors capable of replacing this one or maybe the whole battery)And hub motors, magnetless motors, lighter materials and designs, alternative cell formats, other batteries/capacitors that don't need the BMS, cooling, fire hazard and other babysitting...
>>1594824Hub motors are a terrible choice. They increase unsprung mass. Which degrades suspension performance.
>>1594824Or a platform that doesn't look like it was inspired by a toy car.
>>1594826Shalom. Thanks for repeating this obvious lie that can be easily checked by any search engine again.>>1594830A real platform from a "juiced" car that had almost the same cost as the shitty Model S, but years ago (it had traction on the 4 wheels).
>>1594835Unsprung mass is bad for suspension performance, this isn't a mystery. But considering how many cars have horribly stiff suspensions with heavy wheel brake rotors (instead of inboard brakes) and overly thin sidewalls, it seems suspension performance is not a priority for most people.As for electric aircraft, I believe there's a good chance for practical energy transmission at high altitudes as the air is much purer and thinner and so transmission losses are significantly reduced.

>>1594991Boeing airplanes used to be quite decent, who nose what happened to them.
>>1595172The same as a regular wheel is obviously impossible, unless they are quoting the weight of the wheel separate from engine. Assuming a power to weight ratio of 12 kW/kg (and that's nearly as good as it gets), you're talking of carrying at least 5 kg per wheel for a total of 240 kW of power, which is adequate if not very impressive for the weight of an electric vehicle (slighly more than a base model 3). Assuming the tire and wheel weight around 10 kg each, respectively, it doesnt seem like much (a 25% increase, less if you consider the rest of the suspension and brake rotor), but the fact is these hub motors will have to be made sturdier to resist impacts so their unsprung weight will be significant. And they will need cooling working at those power densities.People don't seem to mind fitting ridiculous large rims on cars, so you'll probably get away with hub motors on base cars (like low powered e-bikes already use), but for high performace cars outside of a track (which is so smooth you dont even need a suspension) it's unnaceptable, even in the best scenario.
>>1595192Search engine, (((bitch))), use it.

>>1595616...that's not a hub motor, the motors are in the main body where you would normally fit the differential and are linked to the wheels through driveshafts, it's made clear in the image.
>>1595687It's unrelated, kippah tipper.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wheel_hub_motor#Weight_savingsA good example of this is the Michelin Active Wheel motor as fitted to the Heuliez Will, the first electric car with an Active Wheel drive, which results in an unsprung weight of 35 kg on the front axle and which compares favorably to a small car such as a Renault Clio that has 38 kg of unsprung weight on its front axle.https://www.motortrend.com/cars/honda/civic/2018/orbis-honda-civic-type-r-awd-review/The whole point of this crazy wheel-reinvention is to eliminate the unsprung weight that has prevented widespread adoption of in-wheel or hub-mounted motors to date (Ferdinand Porsche first proposed the idea in 1897). That SAE-show prototype's corners still weighed some 20 pounds more than the Honda parts, but a summer spent beavering away on computers and CNC milling machines has managed to completely erase the unsprung weight penalty. Yes, the entire metal and machinery clockworks you see framed within the new wheel rim weighs precisely as much as the Honda-spec tire, wheel, brake system, hub, and knuckle that left the Swindon factory. And none of the weight loss came from using costly or exotic materials.
>>1595687And you are gay.

>>1572626>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVPpi0pNP5QThis idiots just re-invented the propeller, but worse.
>>1595740The michelin active wheel motor has 40 hp, weighs 7 kg ( giving about 4kw/kg), saved unsprung weight using lightweight suspension (similar to a lancia aurelia), lightweight brakes (similar to audi 200 UFO brake disk) and alloy wheels (base model clio has steel wheels) which are not applied for cost reasons. The orbis wheel has more potential since nobody really adapted the hubless wheel before despite sbarro´s efforts, mainly due to concerns over bearing life and toughness as when they are moved to the outer rim they have to deal with much higher linear speed differentials and are unable to tolerate any rim deformation (from hitting a pot hole, for example). I´m hoping they have improved on that front because they are really cool. But once again, note how after all that work and even billet weight reduction, it only matches the unsprung weight of a regular type R wheel with a 50 hp wheel motor. I´m afraid people will want a lot more power than that on their heavy cars.>>1595741Fair enough, i didn´t see that there were two variants of the same system. However, note how the rear hub motors produce at max 12 kW per rear wheel, showing once again that the unsprung weight penalty is only acceptable for low amounts of power.

As a regular plane flies, it becomes lighter by spending fuel.As a electric plane flies, it maintains all of its weight since take off.
>>1597331So the pilot would need to plan ahead and leave some of the batteries behind before takeoff, or refill only as necessary in case of flow batteries.The autonomy would suffer too, since maybe the plane relies on losing weight to get further.

Their two rotors provide for a magnetic-gear effect that may increase the torque/volume in low-speed high-torque applications, but at the inevitable cost of notable additional PM weight/Nm, though at acceptable efficiency. But the elimination of mechanical transmission by using a magnetic gear capable of more than 100 Nm/liter is considered encouraging in pursuing the development of compact low-speed high-torque pseudodirect drives with MG-REMs.https://macsphere.mcmaster.ca/handle/11375/16570A prototype double rotor machine of the segmented rotor design is constructed and tested to benchmark an existing double rotor switched reluctance machine. The experiment results show that the proposed design is able to achieve the same output with similar or higher efficiency than the benchmark machine, while occupying only about 60% of overall volume. The double segmented rotor switched reluctance machine demonstrates to be a promising double rotor topology and is worth further research.

>>1566172Compressed natural gas requires less changes, but this still looks viable:http://gjar.org/publishpaper/vol2issue2/d154r58.pdfThe difference between a hydrogen ICE from a traditional gasoline engine could include hardened valves and valve seats, stronger connecting rods, non-platinum tipped spark plugs, higher voltage ignition coil, fuel injectors designed for a gas instead of a liquid, larger crankshaft damper, stronger head gasket material, modified (for supercharger) intake manifold, positive pressure supercharger, and a high temperature engine oil. All modifications would amount to about one point five times (1.5) the current cost of a gasoline engine. These hydrogen engines burn fuel in the same manner that gasoline engines do. The power output of a direct injected hydrogen engine vehicle is 20% more than in a gasoline engine vehicle and 42% more than a hydrogen engine vehicle using a carburetor. Hydrogen internal combustion engine cars are different from hydrogen fuel cell cars. The hydrogen internal combustion car is a slightly modified version of the traditional gasoline internal combustion engine car. These hydrogen engines burn fuel in the same manner that gasoline engines do. Mazda has developed Wankel engines burning hydrogen. The advantage of using ICE (internal combustion engine) like Wankel and piston engines is the cost of retooling for production is much lower. Existing-technology, ICE can still be applied for solving those problems where fuel cells are not a viable solution insofar, for example in cold-weather applications. ICE has been demonstrated based on converting diesel internal combustion engines with direct injection.
