WindHexe update - End 3rd Week May 2023
Selection of experiments from various parties
We’ll discuss Tony Jabony AKA Robb’s ‘mini-hexe’ design inspired by “O-Day - Building nozzles for self-resonating soliton production” and what that lead to.
LIVESTREAM 22:30 CET 21 May 2023
WindHexe testing (with Tony Jabony AKA Robb)
Doing a sound study
Both resonant static and in-operation vibrations were recorded using an Ultramic 384kHz microphone. (Sound files to follow)
Testing Particle Flow
With steel can
With Wood Shavings
Look at revision 2 of the WindHexe
Side channel version drawings for comment
Domestic vacuum/blower ‘WindHexe’ analogue - Henk Jurrien
Henk built a small device to explore material flow
It produce twisted tissue paper that looked similar to the twisted structures that emerge from the vortex cores of ULTR experiments
“The small pieces of carrot stay in better. Still bouncing against the side of the cone. The (air) speeds are (much) too low to do some grinding when I see this happening. Much more pressure is not good for my plastic minihexe, it will 'blow up'.
I still think pressure is more important than flow. The pressure (energy) 'builds' the torus (pressure creates the needed speed). With too much flow with too little pressure, the air is blown out of the top and bottom which makes the torus unstable. I can see this happening with the toilet paper, some is blown out of the top and from the bottom. This is, what I think now, the reason for the wide range where I see the pieces of carrot bouncing around It 'feels like' the air should stay inside the torus as log as possible. (to build energy in the torus and make the torus stable) But how to build the torus with air? I think I will try a different slit to reduce the flow. I can not increase the pressure of my vacuum cleaner, but flow enough, so with reducing the port size I might improve a little!
I tried a different slit, taped the port differently, maybe 2x15mm. Different result again. Now the larger carrots pieces stay in. The whole hexe is shaking with only a few carrot pieces in there, holding the hexe stable seems to make the content move faster, The paper gets smashed more, the alu get's grinded a bit, the blobs get smaller every time.
The 'chimney' does not make a clear difference yet, need to do a few T-paper tests with different lengths of chimney.”

Initial start of build - 28th April 2023
Test 21 May 2023
Cosmic Dave’s notes:
“Today, put an airtight acrylic lid on and ran the 4 centrifugal fan motors. Note. A Partial Vacuum is formed below the base of funnel, enough to draw up the aluminium foil balls.
Next steps: to plug in the various kV supplies (for added electrons) Add the ultrasonic pond mist maker and try different materials in funnel. I have a 12V heater element, I may try putting in a fan intake. Lots of measurements to do. Temp, airspeed and more. I also have a funnel with a low frequency loudspeaker for later experiments. Will also add toroidal coils and various magnets. Lots to do.
Construction notes. Airspeed of fans measured at 12 m/S each before lid and outlets added. And 7m/S at outlets without lid. Outlets are regular rectangular simple slots. New cavitation outlets will be made and tested eventually.”
