Title
(EN) COLD FUSION PROPULSION APPARATUS AND ENERGY GENERATING APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL DE PROPULSION PAR FUSION FROIDE ET APPAREIL GENERATEUR D'ENERGIE
Abstract
(EN)
Propulsion apparatus employs 'cold fusion' of deuterium absorbed in a metal host lattice (7) to generate a heated momentum exchange effluent stream from the deuterium itself and/or to heat a momentum exchange fluid to provide a propulsive impulse upon exhausting through a nozzle (9). Thermal efficiency of a propulsion apparatus and an energy generating apparatus employing such 'cold fusion' of deuterium in a metal host lattice (7) is improved by using a deuterium (hydrogen)-absorbing metal lattice alloyed or compound with one or more of W, Re, Mo, Tu, Ti, Ir and C to raise the lattice melting point and permit higher 'cold fusion' temperatures.
(FR)
Un appareil de propulsion utilise la 'fusion froide' du deutérium absorbé dans un treillis métallique hôte (7) pour générer un courant d'effluent chauffé à échange d'énergie cinétique à partir du deutérium lui-même et/ou pour chauffer un fluide à échange d'énergie cinétique pour produire une impulsion propulsive lors du refoulement du fluide au travers d'un ajutage (9). Le rendement thermique d'un appareil de propulsion et d'un appareil générateur d'énergie utilisant cette 'fusion froide' du deutérium dans un treillis métallique hôte (7) est amélioré en utilisant un treillis métallique d'absorption de deutérium (hydrogène) allié ou composé avec un ou plusieurs des éléments tels que W, Re, Mo, Tu, Ti, Ir et C pour élever le point de fusion du treillis et permettre des températures plus élevées de 'fusion froide'.
