Line 3: Line 3:
     * magnets fields to enhance rotation speeds     * magnets fields to enhance rotation speeds
     * employed the Coriolis force effect     * employed the Coriolis force effect
 +    * to increase the drag force on the disks, roughen the surface, that is increase the coeffient of friction
 +    * the friction on the disk should vary, rougher at larger radius, then gradually smoother towards the center
 +    * Just use water/​steam,​ adding a different liquid wouldn'​t increase the efficiency
   * "​...deriving energy from a fluid, such as pistons, paddles, vanes and blades, necessarily introduces numerous defects and limitations and adds to the complication,​ cost of production and maintenance of the machines."​ (Nikola Tesla, Turbine, US Patent Office 1,061,206, p. 1)   * "​...deriving energy from a fluid, such as pistons, paddles, vanes and blades, necessarily introduces numerous defects and limitations and adds to the complication,​ cost of production and maintenance of the machines."​ (Nikola Tesla, Turbine, US Patent Office 1,061,206, p. 1)
