The Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project is a group dedicated to researching Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (often referred to as LENR) while sharing all procedures, data, and results openly online. We rely on comments from online contributors to aid us in developing our experiments and contemplating the results. We invite everyone to participate in our discussions, which take place in the comments of our experiment posts. These links can be seen along the right-hand side of this page. Please browse around and give us your feedback. We look forward to seeing you around Quantum Heat.

Join us and become part of the project. Become one of the active commenters, who question our work and suggest next steps.

Or, if you are an experimenter, talk to us about becoming an affiliated lab and doing your work in a Live Open Science manner.

Preparing for the worst

jdk: What you describe is the basis for the assumptions used for the Celani experiment. However, the thermal conditions are not the same between the calibration and the experiment. The wire material is different. When H2 is loaded, the active wire resistance changes so it is likely that at a given electrical power these wires will be at significantly different temperatures.

When I asked the question very early on in my heat balance thread I was told that if the glass apparatus was covered in foil the internal temperature rose significantly. This tells us that a significant portion of the heat loss from the glass apparatus was via IR radiation. It also tells us that the placement of the thermocouples on the outer glass wall (the one used to calculate heat flux) will be susceptable to IR thermalization uncertainties. In fact in one of the threads there was a discussion surrounding the Cu bands and whether or not thermal grease was necessary.

Why introduce these uncertainties when with a relatively simple design change (thin wall conduction calorimeter) they can be totally dismissed.
