Experienced readers will be familiar with the engine of Hans Mazenauer and the working engine of Richard Clem. These are detailed in my "Ether-Physics" book in chapter 05.10: 'Tornado-Motor' and in my 2005 chapter entitled 'Auto-Motor'. In these, I concentrate on working out the suction-effect of twisting flow within the indentations, while here in this design of the 'Centrifugal-Thrust-Engine', enormous centrifugal forces are used.
Mazenauer did use air-driven double-cones as shown in the upper illustration of Figure 07.05.14. This did accelerate unaided from a stationary start right up to a speed which caused it to self-destruct. Most unfortunately, Mazenauer was financially ruined by these experiments, and so was unable to complete his work successfully. Mazenauer used a double-cone, where the large part
(shown on the left hand side of the illustration) worked as a turbine while the small part functioned as a pump. During operation, air got moved in inward-turning and outward-turning vortices, overlaid by twist flows within the grooves.
However, a pump of this type which has the driving medium flowing from the outside towards the inside will not be very effective. What is needed is a turning vortex which moves towards the turbine intake and this is better generated by stationary fins of the previously shown inlet-stator (at least when using water as working medium).
Clem based his engine design on an asphalt-pump, and without the slightest doubt, he ran his car without consuming any common fuel. Based on known sketches and pictures, he did use a cone with grooves arranged with rather small gradients (see the lower diagram). However a working-medium which flows in grooves is 'stirred' by the pattern of its own movements. While that is an advantage for heating asphalt, it meant that Clem had to dissipate surplus heat, and because of the high temperatures generated he used oil as his working medium. As shown by my analysis above, much steeper indentations combined with much better angles, generate far greater torque. In addition, Clem's grooves were rather small and did not present large surfaces with strong resistance to the driving medium.
As is the case here, the centrifugal forces of water movement is utilised, and the turning momentum is achieved by pressure applied to the turbine surfaces. For this reason, the grooves need to expose only their pressure-sides, on which flows can produce the best effect. So, unlike these examples from Mazenauer and Clem, my analysis indicates that 'grooves without suction-sides' shaped by these saw tooth-like turbine-paths, are very advantageous.
