He Is a cool old dude that makes working flying saucers with the potential to change the world...

That's quite the gag

I know a German engineer who is quite interested. Hamel wrote a book--something to do with a "butterfly" in the title. I can't figure out the engine he describes though.

I have met with David several times over the past six years and I have a fairly good understanding of how his technology works. I'll paste my intro here since it is the appropriate thread.

I met Mr. Hamel several times in the past starting in the late 90's. I have researched the technology he has been given for a number of years and have a reasonable familiarity with it. I have built models using magnetic simple harmonic oscillators such as the engines that David has built. I am presently undertaking the task of mathematically modeling this technology using computer simulations and will be making it available to everyone on the internet. Even the simplest engine requires an incredible amount of physics calculations to model the system correctly. Although I not convinced that the model will display the tendency to 'run away' like a real engine would, the model will help to determine proper dimensions that will sustain dynamic equilibrium without trial and error or by using Hamel's unique ability to design from within rather then use his mind. I don't believe the theoretical model will run away because it will not include the background force that allows the engine to tune into the energy of the universe. However, if you have tried building any of the models you will realize to simply keep the system from destabilizing during the initial conditions is incredibly hard.

I wish to provide insight to the group regarding the physics behind Hamel's engine as well as recruit help from fellow programmers who would be willing to help program the methods of code that will be put together to form the complete model. If a number of people can contribute a small part to the project then the chances of making errors decrease and the time involved in finalizing the model will decrease exponentially. I'm studying to get my electrical engineering degree at this point in time, which I started for the purpose of being able to calculate the forces at work. I now have the tools I need for the formulas regarding the magnetic forces and I can guarantee that without a computer to do the calculations it would be an impossible feat. To model the interaction of simply one set of magnetic rings requires simple formulas however they cannot be integrated using conventional calculus. It is therefore necessary to write a code that can calculate the forces on the rings using an arc of the ring (as small as you wish) and calculating the area under the function using repetitive summation. The smaller the arc (ds) used for then integration the more accurate the modeling. There are literally thousands of individual calculations required to accurately model magnetic & electric forces, gravity, linear and rotational inertia that the only thing that could do it without complaining is a computer. The 3 segment oscillating system is most difficult to model because the 3 oscillations that make to whole, play on each other, no one piece taking responsibility the motion. This requires breaking the motion into extremely small slices of time and recalculating the forces within the system at regular intervals. By making the components of the system variable, if after some given amount of time the model destabilizes. Then the variables can be adjusted and tried again. Even though increasing the accuracy may require the computer to calculate for a couple of days to model merely a minute of oscillations this is much better then making new prototypes. David's problem with building the engines is that he cannot control them. Building a system that is adjustable to 'tune' the oscillator has proven to be a bad design since once the motion is reaching the critical point where very careful balance is no longer required the system runs a much greater chance of overcoming the structure at the points were adjustments can be made. The best design is that which is made out of solid, balanced, one piece materials that have be manufactured using processes that are usually difficult to unbalance like machining with a lathe. Further, to reduce friction in the system, bearing points/surfaces must be as large as possible which does not allow for seemingly low friction (adjustable) setups that use hard points resting in divots for the jointing of the three segments. I have devised a system to control the motion that uses active feedback to limit the oscillations to below the critical point where runaway will occur. This would not allow the certain side effects from occurring resulting from the energy tap opening up but it would still prove a point, as well as allow modeling of a more complex system such as the one that David is currently occupied with.

I wonder if he's related to Mark Hamil...
