YES and No. This causeway funicular (better known as "funnyicular" (c- Audrey)) rubbish has been going now ,off and on, for about 4 yrs and the figure was almost certainly buried in the past mountains of BS! long ago ...somewhere.
But to be fair Origyptian has reposted a link to his copy somewhere since my last post (separate web page copying the same information) however very poorly formatted it has "," for decimal points.
It ( CoF 0.08) is the source of their whole dilemma and as you would have noted is absolutely critical to their hypothesis or fantasy! As demonstrated even a very low CoF of 0.1 renders the fantasy futile.
The footnotes say when "the surfaces are flooded with lubricant"
These are tests conducted amongst other purposes for benchmarking for such applications like sealed bearings. Copper on copper devices were often used in a contained oil bath for electrical engineering applications!
I think Origyptian invented the term "greased copper" ?
A cursory look down the list of surfaces are flooded with lubricant indicates the rare cases of materials with a possibly lower CoF such as :
Diamond on diamond. 0.05 -0.1 (ie can even be higher than their perfect conditions!!!)
Exotic materials like cadmium and teflon
Then note those that are significantly higher even saturated in lubricant
Bronze on steel higher 0.13
Brass on steel 0.19
However Copper because it is so soft, and wears so easily, does assist in creating more lubrication by its wear.
To achieve the desired result the causeway Copper (rails?) have to be perfectly 100% smooth and flat and somehow contained in a bath of lubricant. Otherwise the whole thing grinds (literally) to a stop!
I see there has been jubilation and even more BS! since my last post.
However, Steve Clayton has been pleading Ori and others and even Cladking LOL! ,to advise him how much weight it will pull up the causeway incline . I imagine their guesses, if any , is being communicated via PM because they would not be either capable or willing to post the fantasy answer on here.
I could do the calculations but Steve claims is going to seek independent expert advice.
Neither of the duo can understand the basic principles involved and therefore do not even understand Lohner's rope roll concept!!!
Shit I hope Clayton video's and youtubes the reaction from these University Professors of Engineering or at least posts their reports. I would thoroughly enjoy being 'a fly on the wall' at such conversations. It will be both hilarious and sad at the same time.
LOL! at 0.08 CoF did you all get a laugh how it takes according to Ori 5 minutes for it to reach 1.3 m/s
I did the calculation too on walking pace 1.66m/s or 6 km/hr and that takes 6 minutes ... then he claims it takes 15 minutes just for one slide down the hill in fantasised absolute perfect conditions! But it wont pull anything significant up the hill whilst doing so.
I am currently too busy to address all the latest BS! and it is not appreciated from the dynamic duo anyway.
I have always imagined that Ori likely wears his underpants on the outside of his trousers!
He gets most things backwards
Dynamic duo LOL!
