Hi folks, This is very interesting. You know I've been seeing this tapering spiral shape all over like in lamps and other places.
Even though not totally the same, it seems Teslas turbine uses a spiraling vortex action to spin the discs efficiently and possibly with excess energy to be tapped. Similar to what Ren is speaking about of his friends device that had spiral channels in between discs although Teslas just used the adhesion effect to keep the water stuck to the disc as it spirals in towards the center outlet. Has anyone experienced or know of anyone getting high efficiencies with a tesla turbine.
