EMDRIVE’S THRUST AND THE BIEFELD-BROWN EFFECT
NASA’s Peer-Reviewed EmDrive Paper Has Finally Been Published
After months of speculation and leaked documents, NASA’s long-awaited EmDrive paper has finally been peer-reviewed and published:
THE BIEFELD-BROWN EFFECT :
From the 1st of Feb. till the 1st of March in 1996, the research group of the HONDA R&D Institute conducted experiments to verify the Biefeld-Brown effect with an improved experimental device to reject the influence of corona discharges and electric wind around the capacitor by setting the capacitor in the insulator oil contained within a metallic vessel. They found that the weight loss by an alternate electric field, i.e. the dynamical effect, was greater than by the static one:
If we place a solid dielectric inside the EmDrive’s cavity then, essentially, we will have an asymmetric capacitor subjected to electromagnetic radiation, i.e. the dynamical Biefeld-Brown effect.
The Abraham force constitutes the physical basis for explaining the Biefeld-Brown effect.
What if we do not place a solid dielectric inside the EmDrive’s cavity? Then EmDrive’s thrust is still due to the Abraham force, because the Abraham force appears not only in solid dielectrics, but also in liquid and gas dielectrics, like air in the EmDrive’s cavity.
