The maverick engineer Nikola Tesla made his contribution in the mechanical engineering field too. Look at one of his favorite inventions - a bladeless turbine, or Tesla Turbine. The Tesla turbine had a simple, unique design, yet it was able to beat the efficiency levels of steam turbines at that time. Normal turbines are complex in design, with blades of complicated geometry and stator parts. Nikola Tesla once said the Tesla turbine is his favorite invention and he even claimed an efficiency level of 97% for this turbine. Let’s start a design journey to understand this interesting piece of technology, and towards the end we will also verify Tesla’s efficiency claim.

  • *_Think this guy is smartest? Seeing as the oldest computer is over 2200 years old, which came nearly 2100 years before Nicola Tesla was even born it leads me to believe there were way more intelligent people in the world, perhaps constrained to the technology available during their time period._*

  • Nothing is said about loads... I don't think it would achieve the efficiency and speed of 10000 rpm with a load of significant size like a power generator.

  • why would you need a turbine 3 meters in diameter. What about a turbine less than half a meter in diameter with the same torque. But I guess harnessing 50k to 100k rpms from turbine to generator would be difcult because turning a generator at such high rpms would be ????? I don't know but something small with a reduction of rpms could produce a hell of a lot torque. Power house in a small package.

  • I'm no engineer but the tesla turbine sounds extremely inefficient. I would know if it was if you bothered to say how much power it takes to get the thing running in the first place instead of focusing on what it can do during and after it has an unknown amount of power. Also if this thing is actually being used why not use a photo of a real one instead of a 3d model?

  • 🤣🤣🤣 Every piece of technology is thanks to Nicholas Tesla. But, school only teaches about Einstein and Thomas Edison who never invented anything

    red horsered horseپیش 12 روز
    • Edison did invent a few things, but his only deeply important one is the corporate laboratory, because it makes science & engineering more economically sustainable (he may have personally invented the record player and film projector, but both are antiquated, and would have been old versions anyways). As for Einstein, he was a scientist, while Tesla was more of an engineer- meaningfully different fields. Einstein earned his fame by devising formulas to predict observations (including quantum mechanics observations, though he was trying to _disprove it_ when he did so), while Tesla was _mostly_ focussed on applying existing knowledge in new ways. Hence Tesla invented the induction motor and an early version of the electric grid, while Einstein is distantly related to some particular aspects of modern electronics (the transistor is built off quantum mechanics). I think Einstein had something to do with improving the understanding of thermionic emissions (which were used in vacuum tubes) too, but I forget the details.

    Annabi MohammedAnnabi Mohammedپیش 15 روز
  • To add stupid but wonder in dwelling in question, what happens if you wield the disk, as in making small piller inside the tiny gap? I mean if you think about it, to stop the warping for there have to be a support beam to hold the disk in place and yes I am aware of the disk losing some power of rpm. If we can wield it and not lose rpms and able keep the flow right then it would be the best energy conducting for little tiny gizmo would power probably 2 or 3 houses.

    Michael PierceMichael Pierceپیش 16 روز
    • It can be a pump or compressor, yes It does not produce thrust it produces axial rotation, which, when combined with a generator produces continuous electricity. This video got alot of things wrong... if your really interested I'll post a link to a decent presentation of teslas work.

  • The efficiency argument is specious. Friction inherently causes dissipation. It probably depends a lot on the load, but the video does not address that. While the Tesla turbine is an interesting concept, traditional axial turbines work well enough, so the world will stick with them. The are millions of interesting engineering concepts, but the only ones that count are the ones that work in practice.

    theawesomonetheawesomoneپیش 18 روز
  • It's ingenious, but in spite all the Tesla-fanboism on display, the prizes in engineering should go to the solutions that can actually be built and work efficiently. The Tesla turbine is great in theory (with currently impossible material science), but in practice only of use in edge cases (like pumping viscous fluids, or fluids with large particulate matter). In a sense, the Tesla turbine is like the space elevator: the best solution to a problem, if it weren't for the fact that we have no idea how to come up with the materials required, or if that's even physically possible under conditions on Earth.

  • Hmmm. If the RPM is the problem of material fatigue, simply, you can't make it efficient by inventing new material. Yeah, generators can be adjusted. But also the turbine. Here's a theory: - add to the shafts flywheels which has some sort of magnets in it - the flow valve for the turbine is regulated through the flywheel electromagnetic induction that regulates the valve - valve is an electromechanical component, meaning, the more flywheel spins or vice versa, opening or closing of the flow valve is regulated - flywheels add rotational energy, so the generators internal resistance under load is being mitigated - it's a pain to optimise it but it's palusible. - power of generators is closely proportional to the size and weight of the flywheel - 3 phase motor with 36 poles is more than enough for 3000 RPM - you can always make a shutoff by making the generator as a break for the flywheels. Thoughts?
