Fourteen Reasons why this
6. The general maintenance on the system would not require an extended period of “down time”. Other than a periodic inspection of the system, the system could be up and running by removing an engine(s) and replacing it with a workable engine.
7. This system would be “ environmentally friendly”, by using catalytic converters that is used in various commercial and industrial applications.
use of the principle of “Continuous Improvement” some
type of hybrid or synthetic fuel might be developed in parallel and
in conjunction with engines specifically designed for this system.
10. Lastly, this system could be used in conjunction with previously constructed utility plants. In this concept this system would function as an "Efficiency Enhancement Add-on Unit(s)" (Click here)
So the above are ten good reasons that we think that this system has an excellent chance of moving forward. However we would like to add the additional benefit of the THRUST Concept. "Speed of construction".
12 reasons why this project should move forward (Click Here)
A tabulation of the actual number of visits to this web site indicates that the country of China far exceeds that of any other country. We are both highly enthusiastic and delighted to see this perceived continued interest and might suggest that this country has mastered the envisioned construction approach leading to the pervasive and global proliferation of this concept. If this is possible within 15 days (Click Here) and we have assumed all parts of a Thrust Unit have been prefabricated, what could one expect for a single Thrust Unit? The research could focus on more efficient Reaction Engines which could be added as they are produced at future times without the construction of new units in various scenarios.
Can a traditional utility plant be constructed as quickly as the one indicated in this presentation? The general thinking was that several models (sizes) of this concept would be developed for use depending on the specific need.
Once a construction company gained experience in the construction of this type of system the time required for construction would be significantly lessened. Such a system as THRUST could be quickly constructed in cases where the forces of nature, through flooding (since most utility plants are constructed close to rivers and other water ( sources ), hurricane, tornado or earth quake or a terrorist attack occurred.
It is generally well known that a typical war strategy is to first attack the utility plants, there by removing all forms electrical power. This strategy is not limited to nuclear plants only but any and all types of utility plants.If a utility plant had been attacked rather than the World Trade Towers on September 11, 2001, it would have taken more than a year to remove all of the debria and re-construct a new plant leaving several people without electricity for a considerable length of time. Discussions with construction companies suggest that the THRUST concept could be constructed in less than two months (provided that all thrust materials and parts had been moved to the construction site) and the use of quick drying cement of the type used during the California earthquake of 1989.
Consider the unthinkable that if we lost two Utility Plants within a single day week or month. It takes years to construct a conventional utility plant. How would the Federal Administration in power at the time respond?
While Fuel Cells will and are playing
a large role in the current and future
Stock Multiple types of fuels to accommodate Multiple types of engines.
Two fuels that are enabling technologies are:
1. Biofuels (Click here)
2. Liquified Natural Gas (Click Here)
3. Future fuels not yet developed such as genetically modified Biofuel plants as a larger growth potential fuel source, that is, more BTUs per acre that can grow in a variety of weather, climate and environmental conditions around the planet. The key to this breakthrough might be found in experiments conducted aboard the International Space Station (ISS).
11. The Thrust Architecture does not require water to maintain the nuclear reactor within an acceptable temperature range as would be required in a drought condition.
12. The Thrust Architecture does not require water to convert to seam to rotate a generator as found in a conventional steam plant as also would be required in a drought condition.Getting the most out of the Thrust Architecture.
13. Upper Scalable. While the concept as presented in this web site illustrates only four engines, the shape of the THRUST architecture can be expanded to the shapes of that of hexagonal, octagonal or a mixture of shapes that are architecturally feasible as deemed by the designing architect. The exhaust would be vertically through the "Roof" of the unit in these configurations. However this might overly complicate noise and vibration issues that require challenging mechanical engineering solutions. Such a structure would be very large in dimensions and the baseline and multiple four moment arms might be optimum. This is to say the construction of eight single four engine units might be preferably to combining eight units into a single unit.
size adjustments as extra power growth is required without the construction
cost of full size plants. The perception is that of an "add on" plant
to supplement the larger plant.
More Reasons of Why This Project Should Move Forward
1. For each installed unit at least two units should be constructed. Those above an additional one must be on line when the other unit is down for scheduled or unexpected maintenance and periodic inspection by on site Thrust Architecture company employees.
It has been suggested that several Thrust Architecture "Shell Units" (that is Thrust Structures without installed engines) be constructed in strategic locations (that is off Grid) to guard against and protection from cyber terrorism as a back-up in case an attack occurs.
2. The exhaust deflector of the Thrust Architecture should be covered with Teflon, however it must be periodically cleaned as a part of scheduled maintenance.
3. The Boeing company has 800 orders for its new passenger jet. Similarly a company such as the investors interest might consider taking orders also.
Since one size will not fit all requirements, preliminary studies must be conducted to determine a customers specific needs.
4. As the world economy shifts to electric cars, it is probably not well known that the electricity for these cars must have a source to generate electricity and biodiesel could be the source that must be converted to electricity at the Thrust Architecture utility plant.
5. While it was not envisioned that the Thrust Architecture could replace all utility plants, it was envisioned as a way to incrementally add to short falls to existing plants in a quick and inexpensive way without having to go to build new traditional plants.
6. We envision this architecture eventually to become a (Over Simplification) multi billion dollar world wide, international corporation in terms of
a. Continuous Global and World wide Demand .
b. Continued Maintenance (Purchase , that is, would require continuous maintenance contract) We do not forsee a steep and complicated learning curve for these employees.
c. Replacement cost and change out for newer and improved efficient engines.
d. The production of the fuel for the units
e. Evolving over the long time to a corporation to manufacture our custom engines.
f. Quite honestly we can foresee a Federal Government requirement wherein all Utility Plants should have multiple Thrust Architecture units of various configurations installed at all existing utility plants.
During the April 27, 2011 tornado outbreak in Alabama the nuclear utility plant at Browns Ferry in Limestone county was hit by a tornado that is 30 miles from our office building and the plant had to shut down and electricity for Huntsville had to purchased from a utility plant in Scottsboro Alabama driving utility bills to excessive limits. The city of Huntsville and surrounding counties without electricity for almost seven days. Had this occurred during the winter rather than spring these situation could have been catastrophic in addition to the tornado damage.
Before the plant could be operational all of the high towers and power lines leading from the plant had to be replaced which required over eight months of work.
g. The efficiency of the Thrust Architecture would only slightly diminish with age of the unit, however technically the efficiency should actually improve commensurate with the improvement in Reaction Engine technology which is of course the main driver of the unit"s overall efficiency. The investment normally required to construct a new plant would be avoided (that is, as an option depending on the condition and age of the existing plant) since Reaction Engine technology could be advanced in laboratories, test stands, advanced computer modeling technologies finalizing with the direct and straight forward installation into a pre-existing Thrust Architecture structure.
The energy of a reaction engine in this application (THRUST) that is normally spent to carry fuel ( that is, the weight of the fuel) in the wings and center tanks such as in airliner application can be avoided and transferred directly into the rotation of the generator. There is of course also the weight of the passengers, baggage and freight that can be avoided also and the energy required for this overhead can be transferred to the generator
h. Lastly we have not overlooked the Brayton Cycle and its relationships,viz,very carefully increased compressor pressure ratios and the like and the Rankine Cycle and its related efficiencies in terms of plant age, type of coal, fuel used and the like, but have elected not to discuss these issues; the effects of which are well documented in the literature in terms of common knowledge and the fear that such discussions would detract from the overall concept for which we are proposing.
