Given a gauss field is used to conatain nuclear fusion reactor, I suspect that a method for the magnetic detonation of a nuclear device is possible but not practical in terms of portabilty because of the energy input requirements. A fixed base however is a cat of a different colour. Sincerely Stan Bernard --Previous Message--
I Guess what I would do is make a coil around a ball bearing or a hollow spherical shell and stand back! The deformation pattern of a hollow shell would tell the tale.
20 micro seconds is eternity in physics. We can tell you what conditions were one trillionth of a second after the "Big Bang"
Modulating or pulsing the field is possible you said, in my letter to you I speculated on a two coil system fired sequentially to produce a uniform pressure wave. A radial wave form means that if you can set up a complemantery waveform in in multiple axis at the same time..x y z axis?
Multiple coils shaped to produce a uniform field(s)? it might all be a problem of scale..I suspect the energy density is there but for a very short time.So if you can scale the size of your core to compliment your Kv's Le voila
You dont think you can answer my questions? Or you dont think you should? The chill of Sept 11th?
I'm sure people far brighter than I have looked at this question,
What can a high school dropout possibly know that the scientific, military
and intelligence establishment dont know already ? Not much.
My imagination seeks answers to questions the academic knows not to bother to ask.
The primary question is will a berylium alloy reflector shell react to a magnetic field.
Seconday question would be if it reacts what is the ratio of compression likely given a skin cross section of .5ml. and an applied Kv and gaussfield
If the alloy reacts and compresses sufficiently and evenly will the forces generated by the compression iniate a nucelear reaction.Initial size of the nuclear core might be the only limitation. Field strength to compress a core smaller than the size required to sustian traditional a reaction might result in a micro nuclear device sub minature, nano nuke( told you I had a wild imagination)Dont get me going on ytrium barium copper sulfate superconducing ceramic magnets!
Good science is good questions thanks for entertaining my wild imagination!
I guess its back to American Anti gravity.com!
Best regards !

: The first thing I thought of when I saw your coins was..if you can
: metal.. can a magnetic field be used to compress a berylium reflector
: sphere with a plutonium core? ie a nuclear bomb. Traditonal explosive
: lenses are used to initiate the core now. Can a magnetic field generate
: the forces comprable to an exlposive lens? I know it can contain nuclear
: fusion ie tokomak . How many Kv would be required and could a field be
: reliably modulated to produce a uniform comression wave on a shperical
: Thinking outside of the box.
: : Hi Stan,
: Interesting questions! The quarter shrinker really doesn't shrink metal,
: it reshapes it. As the quarter is reduced in diameter, it increases in
: thickness so that the volume (and thus the density) remains the same.
: I suspect that it is not possible to use magnetic forming instead of
: explosives, since the magnetic compression force is not spherically
: symmetric, nor is the energy density comparable to that which can be
: achieved by shaped charges. The "shrinking" force is strongest
: in the center portion of the coil, dropping off rapidly toward the
: edges, and is directed radially (not spherically) inward. The peak force
: is about 20 microseconds from the time the triggered spark gap fires,
: and the peak force lasts for only a few microseconds (if the coil were
: to survive... which it doesn't).
: I'm not sure I can answer the other questions even if I knew the
: answers... :^)
