Experiment 3.1 (Trial 3)

My experiments are proceeding well. It has been a process of elimination in the chase to amplify any lifting/torquing movement to see if it might generate lift. But already, having investigatively eliminated several possibilities, I am finding that a gradual trend of increasing amplification of the effect is becoming manifest. I hope to upload the videos in short order.

I think it really helped to do the previously series of experiments with the wheel spins (when the machine is viewed with the carriage positioned such that the two wheels appear to be on either side of the central axis of the machine) oriented in the same direction (i.e, both pointing to the left or the right). I have an intuitive feel for the machine and that helps with the experimentation.

So far I have discovered several interesting, counter-intuitive facts through my experimentation.I do not think you will find them in any Physics text book. To summarize the effects I have discovered in my experimentation in simple words:

1. The wheels mounted as they are in the relativistic machine experience an inward force when there of combination of:

a) Their spin: they are spinning (according the convention outlined above) with the spin of the wheel on the left pointing toward the central axis of the machine (or pointing away from the central axis of the machine) and the wheel on the right pointing toward the central axis of the machine (or pointing away from the central axis of the machine).

b) The carriage is also spun: the carriage holding the wheels is itself spun, with a torque that is sinusoidal and in the clockwise direction if the wheel spins are pointing in the outward direction (and in the counterclockwise direction if the wheel spins are pointing in the inward direction).

The force experienced by the wheels depends upon and is directly proportional to the spin angular velocity of the flywheels, their moment of inertia and the max value/time period of the sinuisoidal torque imposed on the carriage.

I have named this the Kidd Effect and it can be seen in this video.

2. When the wheel spins are oriented (according to the convention above) such that they both point right or left and a torque is imposed on the carriage (either clockwise or counter clockwise) such that it is sinusoidal in time (i.e., its amplitude vs time graph is a sinusoid), the higher the max value of the sinusoidal torque imposed, the lower the amount of rotation you will obtain from the wheels (for a given time period of the sinuisoid).

That is, as I increased the rate of change of torque, the resistance of the carriage to movement increased correspondingly - even compared to a situation where we impose constant torque whose amplitude is equal to the maximum value of sinuisoidal the torque.

I have documented the 'rim riding' behavior of such an orientation in the last minute of the Inductive Effect video. Click here to see that.

I have substantial evidence for energy drain both from the spinning wheels and the motor driving the carriage, more than can be justified through more than friction.
