Magnetic Viscosity!

may 5th, 2007:

Terry Blanton:

Sean McCarthy dropped this term again today:

about how his technology works. Isn't this the same as hysteresis?

Okay, for a fixed field strength, it takes time for the field density to catch up, so to speak hence, "viscosity". Whereas, hysteresis relates to varying applied field strength.

So, 'Steorn claims that their technology takes advantage of magnetic domain alignment time lag'.


Wesley Bruce

but that's the mechanism of magnetic refigeration. If it's that simple the people doing magnetic refrigeration will have a fit.


Rutherford, Berkhausen & Steorn.

No, not the latest law firm nor, a new wave band. However it is helping me to understand what these Irish laddies are talking about.

Rutherford essentially defined magnetic viscosity in his second paper.

Barkhausen fairly explained the cause and showed how domain flipping causes magnetic noise.

The propagation of domain flipping is the cause of MV.

Steorn has now found a way to take an advantage of the propagation of domain flipping.

At first I did not believe that you could build a solid state magnetic energy source but, I think I could bloody well do it with adequate resources.

Well done!
