 Disclaimer

        Due to hundreds thousands of publications, Patents issued and a fact human life doesnít last the required 500 years and also the universal right to creation I am doing away with studying the state of art except accidental exposure. What a pleasure.  This entails possibility of seeming infringement on I.P. of other persons. This is not my intention.                                                                                                                                                                                       
    At the beginning of my innovation career I was upset realizing that I was not the first who invented logarithmic scales and concept of proportional navigation of ground-to-air missile guiding system.  Therefore, consider any writing incorporating words Public Domain as a contribution to a brainstorm session not requiring any comment. If any technology or part is found original, I claim credit.

Esteemed  XXXXXX XXXX, 

    Products I am happy with can be counted using digits of one hand. Your refrigerator is among them. Still, in a crowded house where the fridge door is open most of the time cost of electricity may be unbearable. Seniors with less flexible body may have difficulty reaching some parts of the shelves.

    I propose design changes which will make your product a super-darling of consumers. As a drawer, each shelf will retain its volume of cold air when open. Ambient air will fill the space  at the  back of the drawer which will remain isolated from the cold air and expelled upon closing the drawer. There is a pair of gates which open and join the drawer interior with the shaft of cold air upon closing  and close when the drawer is open. Please, follow the Drawing. No patent search was done. If any idea presented is original, useful and patentable I claim priority.

 

  

With high regards,

    The idea of rewarding inventors is good, until we examine the details. Our forefathers had  serious gaps upstairs, overlooked a rule valid since Adam and Eve - if you give a rich man finger, he does not care about your hand and arm; his ambition is to swallow the whole universe. Examples abound.

Let's fly, for a while

    Life is precious. That's why I flew paragiider only in fair weather, without turbulence, from some smaller hills, some high altitude from Indian Cliffs, Bath, N.Y.
    Let me count the ways you can die while paragliding - and the reasons.

 *   Encountering strong uplift your body swings forward, wing pulls back. Then, beginner pilot and low altitude is a bad combination. It may result in stall which needs extra space to handle.
 *   In towing up, angle of attack is excessive which results in the wing having no regards to stabilising mass of the pilot's body, followed by lock-out, dive and crash.
 *   Insufficient flying speed and side wind make one tip of the wing collapse. It may progress to full collapse, stall and variety of fatal complications.

    These are the main culprits. Now the reasons.

    Manufacturers are lying, lying and lying about safety of their gliders. Statistics show otherwise. Once growing in size, they become extremely arrogant. Value of pilots' life becomes irrelevant, value of Dollar paramount. Life-saving technologies which make free flight safe are available. I will donate them to Public Domain since I have no other means to demonstrate my respect for life. Talking is cheap.

          Please, examine the following Drawing which embodies a multi-purpose life protecting technology. It simultaneously provides several functions.
* Maintains flying speed upon encountering strong uplift, by autonomously lowering the AoA, momentarily.
* It gives a choice of manual convenient steering control or by weight shift, in a range of AoA.
* In towing up, the technology sets up and autonomously maintains optimal and safe AoA, preventing lock-out, overriding pilot's or winch operator's  errors
    regardless of line force direction and altitude.
* Angles of attack are physically limited, in a range from penetration to tow.

        Significant advantage - always flying with perfectly flat wing; brakes used only in take-off and landing flare.


    Enjoy !  No more loops,  pulleys and multiple confusion resembling squatters' headquarters. Pure simplicity and safety. 

 

Technology virtually eliminating onset of collapse.

    The Image shows number of ribs of a paraglider provided with a scoop of light fabric at the opening of the leading edge. Wing surface is removed. An air stream directed at the leading edge, even by impossibly oblique angle, will be caught and re-directed to interior of the glider, maintaining pressure, preventing wing collapse. At square entry, the scoops will assume flag position. Somebody, please, have mercy.

 

Truly Autonomous Mitigation

There is hardly more important quality of a ship than stability. Some highly qualified but deluded Companies decided to handle balance by water tanks, disregarding the fact that water has no force below WL and will cause damage to environment by transporting killer species. Not counting dishonest inspectors and tremendous waste of resources on complex but useless technologies. There are quite a few much smarter stability concepts, but for realisation it would require finding actors with I.Q. above 75 points.

One of my stability devices use simultaneous force of water mass located above WL and buoyant force of air under WL on opposite side.

The system will function autonomously without intervention by humans, under any sea state, on the way or at anchor. It will mitigate roll, pitch and accelerate natural ship roll frequency so it beats the waves.

It features units of fine shelves accessible by sea and removable from deck for cleaning. Both ballast and buoyancy are cancelled by the ship coming to level. Water volumes are renewed with each roll.

   

Liquefaction

    Hearing about the tragedy of two ships sinking and sailors dying I offered to the grieving  Government I will not name a technology positively preventing liquefaction of metal ores. To six Offices filled to brim with Attorneys and bureaucrats tasked with overseeing safety of maritime navigation. 
    SIX TIMES NO REPLY. Pray for me, the families and orphans.  Curse the criminals; the gates of hell surely are wide open for them. 

Examine the drawing. 
    In hold, there are containers suitable for optimal volume of the ores. They are arranged, interlock  and  steadied by mechanical spreading consoles  padded with elastic material in order to eliminate any movement during ship roll.
     If the system is standardized and ores processing plant nearby, the containers can be transferred directly there, at tremendous saving in harbour fees. Because of considerable mass of the load located well below the centre of buoyancy, stability of the vessel will increase considerably.

Another stability problems

Not all bilge keels are created equal

    Pioneers deserve our gratitude and respect. However, there is no need to worship idols long proven obsolete, like the standard half-ass bilge keels.
    Please, follow the drawing. There are surfaces horizontally and  adjustably positioned near W.L. Because of their curvature and distance from hull's surface they produce powerful and clean hydrodynamic force from waves. The force is generated only on the side of wave crest, fundamental difference from the traditional bilge keels. There is negligible drag.
    The keels can be flipped up on deck.
    I am forced, having in mind saving lives of mariners, to go public. Naval Architects seem to be quite slow thinkers; they should avoid being lectured by a 9-Grader.

   

Positioning of floating structures by anchor system

Sea habitats and other structures, for example pipe-laying ships, need to have a means of stabilization which is autonomous and self-correcting, preferable by action of the same waves which de-stabilize it.

Following is a diagram of such system. People in the Nord Stream 2, pay attention. The image shows a mirror half of the systemís view.

There is number of anchors along the hull and service vessel which task is to sequentially, like legs of a caterpillar, transfer the individual anchors and the ship forward. This will insure continuous stabilization. Winding the drums, having regard to the tension meters, enables fine-tuning the system.

As a wave impacts the windward side of the hull, the anchor line pulls, lifts ballast acting by its inertia, hydrodynamic drag and increased leverage of taught line to force any change in position of the hull back. Multiple consoles must be joined with the hull in such a way that they will be in parallel with longitudinal axis of the hull. This will assure increased sensitivity and equal force produced at all points.

Happiness is
Breathing on neck of the Thermodynamicus

 

The drawing represents analog solid ship  roll mitigating ballast system activated by ocean wave, preemptively,
 acting before the hull starts rolling. Position of the ballast is governed solely by state of the sea.
It mitigates roll and also accelerates natural hull roll frequency.

SOLID STATE FLASH BOILER ENGINE FOR MARINE VESSELS

Pop-pop boats are favourite toys for children an adults alike and a marvel of solid state technology. Experts invariably insist this low energy system cannot be scaled up because its function depends on cooling of the heated and expelled water stream to create vacuum which draws amount of water back into the boiler for the cycle to repeat itself. Such cooling cannot be done effectively within larger tube diameter, hence the impossibility of scaling up, they say.

I HAVE FOUND that by avoiding the cooling part of the cycle which enables increasing the exhaust tubes diameter and rectifying the thrust-producing flow into one-way it is possible to scale the engine up to a man-size boat.

In Drawing illustrating embodiments of the invention Figure 1 is perspective rendering of twin engine unit with integrated two flash boilers.

The boilers are joined in such a a way that the exhaust tube of one is cross-connected to the intake tube of the next boiler, so during the expulsion a part of the pressure forces an amount of water in the intake tube into its boiler, alternating. This results in virtually continuous cycle with greater efficiency. One-way operation is assured by flexible hoses extending the intake tubes and reaching downwards into area of higher pressure which acts as a one-way valve. The hoses will temporarily deflect upon encountering underwater obstacle. The boilers intake ports are located below water line which insures autonomous feeding. Upper sides of the boilers and the exhaust tubes should be insulated to reduce heat loss.

Ends of the exhaust tubes have Venturi device producing suction to admix water into the steam flow. Heat for the flash boilers is produced by gas by a common method.

It is possible to use one boiler only. In this case the exhaust tube should be extended, lead from end to end within the hull. This will produce increased amount of inertia and so prolong the exhaust period which will allow the intake take place before the exhaust is fully expanded and so affect virtually uninterrupted thrust.

 WHY ?

  "Why you haven't been successful in the technology transfer in the past", is a regular question I must repeatedly answer. 

    Would-be inventors, listen carefully and save yourself a lot of heartache and money!

    It goes like this, a typical illustration.

    An impressive brochure sent to me by a Company in a response to my offer of innovative packaging design possibly worth millions of Dollars. A long list of conditions, one especially endearing. They would, if they choose, pay me up to $ 500. Such generosity moved me to tears. I will frame it in gold.

    An offer addressed to Vice-president is received by his secretary. The buck often stops here. If the boss gets a chance to read it he realises he's only got a Master's in business administration, therefore passes it to his engineering team.

    The guys just brewed their coffee and are annoyed. A bad omen. They take it personally when someone from outside wants to teach them how to develop new products, especially when the company already receives millions in R&D money from the fatherly government (from the taxpayers' pockets). The verdict is predictable, this is not suitable for the company at the present.

    If, by a strange stroke of fortune they like it, it goes next to the legal department where a team of well-paid Attorneys pore over it. It never ever passes this point, I promise.

    To explain the latest phenomenon we must go back some 2,500 years when Lao-tse formulated the wisdom of his time,

 

"When the State is in disarray

Loyal ministers are born"

 

    He should have added that they, intrepid, never come to solve the problem, rather create more. Plenty more. To translate this from Chinese to simple English, may I quote myself,

 

Where there is honesty

Lawyers die of starvation

    Check your yellow pages for the state of art.

    I believe knowledge and intellectual property are greatly overrated. There is certain cowardice in claiming credit for achievements  caused mainly by the fact that one was born earlier and certain justified resentment by the following generations for having  wind taken off their sails.

An Inventor Delivers State of Disunion Address

    Ladies and gentlemen, dear citizens;
.
    We beget, raise and cherish children, devote to them long years of sacrifices and resources.. We respect all children, not just our own.
    We do not say onto them, "you exploit us, want advantages without giving us anything in return". To mention profit in front of children would be morally repugnant. We understand they are the future parents, creators of values, protectors of society.
    Yet, when we meet an inventor we employ different philosophy. We forget that he was born to create, deliver immediate and recurring benefits to us. We perform the same despicable and cowardly acts as an aggressor planning to start a war. We de-humanize, lie, vilify. It is easy then to accuse him of self-interest and greed in order to justify our blackmailing and treating him as less than human. Only those incorporated, endowed with phony artificial body are to be treated with respect.
    Ladies and gentlemen, to treat an inventor differently than a gifted child is morally repugnant; societies following such practice are morally deficient.
    Thank you for your attention.

   Scanners are never failing source of  disappointment. Companies leave out contact address because they obviously feel guilty.

   If I worked for the company, as a floor sweeper, I would press for appointment with the C.E.O. to discuss important intellectual property.

    I would tell the boss:

    Sir, I would like to know how much trouble it would be to make the edges the scanner glass beveled, sticking fraction above the frame, since large than A-4 sizes exist that need to be scanned and also provide one extra panoramic scan option allowing the same setting for series of scans so the sections could be stitched up perfectly.

    Second question; why do you hire incompetent designers which exclude such inexpensive and desirable feature from your scanners, to detriment of the Company's fortune?

    The answers will depend on I.Q. of the C.E.O. I would not hold my hopes too high.

    The Patent Office, supposing they have some human quality, cannot refuse to examine claims just because they "look like"  perpetual motion device, they must examine it to find whether it functions or not. They naturally refuse granting patent for false claims, but MUST grant Patent on a device which fits definition of patentable device, regardless of their opinions and consensus about certain laws of physics. It seems we are not that far from the Dark Ages, the only progress being abandoning the custom of burning at stake those who disagree. 

    We must have some compassion for the guys, since the Laws of Thermodynamics they choose to refer to was never scientifically proven; they are  pitifully constrained.

A thousand peers may be wrong and they sometimes are; remember the Flat Earth? One among them originally correct who submits himself to peer review is ultra-stupid.
