I could be wrong Drew, but i think you're 'flogging a dead horse' trying to engage people such as Phage.
IMO, he and others of his ilk, answer posts and questions using either what has been learned through conventional academia, which is all well and
good, so long as we are discussing the conventional rather than the controversial and provided you wish to stagnate and not progress.
He also appears not adverse to trotting off to his favourite stash of 'official' science websites, to find an answer...again, nothing wrong with
that if maintaining the status-quo is what you ultimately desire.
Sound is going to be huge in the near future.
We are going to discover that there is an order to chaos, an order to the white noise of the universe, and a reason for it's apparent random and
chaotic nature. A personal opinion yes, but not one i hold alone.
Energy generation is another exciting component of sound and sound wave research of late.
High frequency sound waves, harmonically coupled to it's target will generate as much energy as we would want.
Imagine a bank of piezoelectric wafers, perhaps lining the inside surface of a housing, a parabola shape at one end, where the wafers are, drawing
into a thin cone shape at the other end of the housing.
Then imagine a sound source at the thin end of this housing, directed at this bank of wafers.
Then, pump high frequency sound at them...what will happen?
Lot's and lot's of energy created by the action of sound on the piezo wafer is produced.
Sound that very rapidly oscillates the piezoelectric crystal wafers thus generating energy, for very little expense. No motors, no copper, no rare
Earth magnets. Just sound and crystals.
If you built the housing properly, to achieve resonance, just shouting or singing down the cone would vibrate the crystal wafers, and cause energy
production. Even playing a didgeridoo at it would make energy!
Why are we not seeing this technology massively scaled up? Or at least in trial on a large scale?
So, sound can levitate, generate and it seems it can infuriate - going by some of the foaming at the bit posts on here!
