Tesla turbine
Tesla turbine The Tesla turbine is a bladeless centripetal flow turbine patented by Nikola Tesla in 1913. It is referred to as a bladeless turbine because it uses the boundary layer effect and not a fluid impinging upon the blades as in a conventional turbine. The Tesla turbine is also known as the boundary layer turbine, cohesion-type turbine, and Prandtl layer turbine (after Ludwig Prandtl). Bioengineering researchers have referred to it as a multiple disk centrifugal pump.[1][2] One of Tesla’s desires for implementation of this turbine was for geothermal power, which was described in "Our Future Motive Power".[3] Description[edit] View of Tesla turbine "bladeless" design Tesla wrote, "This turbine is an efficient self-starting prime mover which may be operated as a steam or mixed fluid turbine at will, without changes in construction and is on this account very convenient. This turbine can also be successfully applied to condensing plants operating with high vacuum. Pump[edit] Tesla Other Related:  Nicolas Tesla - A Classer

Turbine de Tesla Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. La turbine de Tesla est un type de turbine sans pales breveté par Nikola Tesla en 1913. Elle utilise l'effet de couche limite et non l'impact d'un fluide contre des pales comme c'est le cas dans une turbine conventionnelle. Description[modifier | modifier le code] Une turbine de Tesla consiste en un jeu de disques lisses, avec des buses appliquant un gaz sous pression sur les bords des disques. Turbine de Tesla: concept sans pales Tesla écrit : « Cette turbine est un moteur efficace capable de démarrer par lui-même qui peut s'employer comme turbine à vapeur ou à fluide mixte librement, sans modification de sa construction et est très pratique de par cet aspect. Cette turbine peut également être utilisée efficacement par des usines de condensation opérant à vide poussé. Vue d'un système à turbine de Tesla Toutes les plaques et les rondelles sont fixées sur un arbre fileté aux extrémités, et équipé d'écrous pour serrer l'ensemble. Brevets Tesla

Stirling engine Alpha type Stirling engine. There are two cylinders. The expansion cylinder (red) is maintained at a high temperature while the compression cylinder (blue) is cooled. Beta type Stirling engine. Originally conceived in 1816 as an industrial prime mover to rival the steam engine, its practical use was largely confined to low-power domestic applications for over a century.[3] The Stirling engine is noted for its high efficiency compared to steam engines,[4] quiet operation, and the ease with which it can use almost any heat source. Name and classification[edit] Robert Stirling was a Scottish minister who invented the first practical example of a closed cycle air engine in 1816, and it was suggested by Fleeming Jenkin as early as 1884 that all such engines should therefore generically be called Stirling engines. There are many possible implementations of the Stirling engine most of which fall into the category of reciprocating piston engine. History[edit] Invention and early development[edit]

La turbine à vapeur Tesla Nikola Tesla, célèbre dans le monde entier comme électricien, étudie actuellement un nouveau type de turbine à vapeur. Les détails précis sur le rendement et les qualités mécaniques de cette machine manquent ; mais elle a, pour le moins, le mérite de l’originalité. La turbine à vapeur est, de par son principe même, un appareil d’une grande simplicité, M. Tesla a réussi à la simplifier davantage encore, et sa solution a, en outre, le mérite de fournir une turbine rigoureusement réversible, pouvant tourner à volonté et avec le même rendement dans un sens ou dans l’autre. Voici, d’après Scientific American, les caractères essentiels de la nouvelle machine. Dans les divers types de turbines aujourd’hui en usage : de Laval, Parsons, Curtiss, Rateau, et autres, la vapeur d’eau abandonne son énergie aux ailettes motrices, par choc, par pression, ou par réaction. Le fluide pénètre par B, ajutage qui peut être divergent, droit, ou convergent. M. Signalons aussi que les études actuelles de M.

Tesla Turbine Wanted: these sections used to be from separate pages, i just dumped them here in the meantime. if someone can clean these up before i get back to them, that'd be awesome :) On the Tesla turbine - proceed to the simple steam engine, please. I know of one commercial tesla pump, and it is very expensive. I know of no commercial Tesla engines. We considered the Tesla turbine seriously, I had materials quotes lined up - and then I found out that a typical implementation is 40% efficient, and the best documented one is 60 at When I recognized this - and considered limited working fluid in a solar concentrator sytem - I said bye-bye turbine. I can provide a much longer discussion on the above.

la turbine de Tesla - Partage d'idées et de connaissance Cette turbine a été conçu puis breveté par Nikola Tesla en 1913. Sa caractéristique est qu'elle n'utilise aucune pale. Comme exemple : une pale d'hélice d'avion ou d'hélicoptère. Plusieurs pales (le plus souvent au nombre de 2,3 voir 4) qui sont fixé à un moyeu central. La turbine de Tesla est connue sous les noms de turbine à couche limite, turbine à cohésion. "L'entente d'une des grandes centrales électriques de chaleur terrestre de l'avenir. ""All that is necessary to open up unlimited resources of power throughout the world is to find some economic and speedy way of sinking deep shafts." Une turbine de Tesla est conduite par un jeu de disques lisses, avec des buses appliquant un gaz sous pression sur les bords des disques. Nikola Tesla a ecrit : "'Cette turbine est un moteur efficace capable de démarrer par lui-même qui peut s'employer comme turbine à vapeur ou à fluide mixte librement, sans modification de sa construction et est très pratique de par cet aspect.

How the Tesla Turbine Works" Most people know Nikola Tesla, the eccentric and brilliant man who arrived in New York City in 1884, as the father of alternating current, the form of electricity that supplies power to almost all homes and businesses. But Tesla was a prodigious inventor who applied his genius to a wide range of practical problems. All told, he held 272 patents in 25 countries, with 112 patents in the United States alone. You might think that, of all this work, Tesla would have held his inventions in electrical engineering -- those that described a complete system of generators, transformers, transmission lines, motor and lighting -- dearest to his heart. But in 1913, Tesla received a patent for what he described as his most important invention. Interestingly, using the word "turbine" to describe Tesla's invention seems a bit misleading. If this is true, why hasn't the Tesla turbine enjoyed more widespread use?

Une turbine de Tesla pour tailler dangereusement des crayons Avec un boitier de CD, quelques aimants et un compresseur 12 volts, il est possible de construire un taille crayons à turbine de Tesla pour affûter des crayons que vous n'utilisez probablement jamais de toutes façons. Sans compter que ce bricolage pourrait vous tuer si vous ne vous entourez pas de précautions: les instructions soulignent en effet qu’une solide cage protectrice est impérative pour éviter que le dispositif ne vous explose en pleine figure. Si vous choisissez de vous lancer en suivant les consignes de prudences, vous pourrez réaliser une machine capable de tailler un crayon à 2200 tours par minute. [Hacked Gadgets] [youtube]

Build a 15,000 rpm Tesla Turbine using hard drive platters Here's a project that uses some of those dead hard drives you've got lying around. In the Tesla Turbine, air, steam, oil, or any other fluid is injected at the edge of a series of smooth parallel disks. The fluid spirals inwards and is exhausted through ventilation ports near the center of the disks. A regular blade turbine operates by transferring kinetic energy from the moving fluid to the turbine fan blades. In the Tesla Turbine, the kinetic energy transfer to the edges of the thin platters is very small. Instead, it uses the boundary layer effect, i.e. adhesion between the moving fluid and the rigid disk. To build a turbine like this, you need some dead hard drives, some stock material (aluminum, acrylic), a milling machine with a rotary table, and a lathe with a 4 jaw chuck. Wikipedia has a good review article ( as well as articles about I run my turbine on compressed air (40 psi), and it easily reaches speeds of 10-15,000 rpm.

Build an Amazing Tesla CD Turbine Build a real working turbine from recycled CD's! This Tesla CD Turbine is based on the Tesla turbine, which was invented by Nikola Tesla in the early 1900's. Tesla's pumps and motors were unique in that they only used discs, and took advantage of the boundary layer effect. His smallest designs were over 100 horsepower. This Instructable is an introduction to my recently developed Tesla CD Turbine, which is made from CD's, CD spindle, pipe fittings and glue. The basic model Tesla CD Turbine shows how the boundary layer idea works to deliver power. The advanced model has many cool features, such as the use of neodymium magnets to separate the CD's with the correct gap and a Magnetic Coupler to attach implements, and much more. My next CD Turbine Instructable shows how to make a Magnetic Disc Pack and Magnetic Coupler for more advanced CD Turbine experimentation. However, please be forewarned that this turbine on air pressure is not really a kid's toy or particularly safe to operate.

S'attaquer à la turbine de Tesla! Que faisons-nous? «Puissance de Tesla! Good morning everyone! I’ve been spending the last few days doing very in-depth research on the design of an efficient tesla turbine, and I’ve come to share my results thus far! To be honest, I never knew a tesla turbine could be so complicated and advanced even though there are few moving parts and construction seems so simple. However, do not be fooled! For this turbine to have descent torque, high horsepower, and obtain efficiency up to Tesla’s claimed 95%, this turbine requires an engineer’s intellect to be properly calibrated to the most fine detail and precision. Anyway, I hope I don’t blow your mind and I provide enough sources to appease the wiki readers! Three Main Factors The most important thing to keep in mind on building a tesla turbine is the fact that we know something is important on it, but what? Inlet Nozzle Configuration The most important part about the inlet nozzle or hose is that it can deliver a high-powered jet stream directly to the gaps in the turbine.
