Self Resonant Disk Stack

I consider this experiment a proof of concept for mass vibrational systems. Creating a motion, that is self powering, by using only geometry, is a major realization for mankind.
I sincerely hope mankind, will catch up, soon.

This experiment applies the same concepts we have used successfully on tube designs, to a set of stacked disks to show it is possible to get a 3D resonance on two random sized elements. Goal was to create a self powered mass vibration on the system similar to the Joe Cell tubes. For simplicity a HEX pattern is used similar to the center tube of a Joe Cell. The experiment works!

Locating the center of mass vibration on a disk.

The blue line above[104.82 mm] is the linear distance of the mass of the material on one side.
At its center is located the circle of vibration, or the vibrational circumference, the central or median Orange circle.

Vibrational Circumference Radius is the length of the HEX pattern Orange lines. [33.705 mm]
In the HEX form the polygon sides are equal to the radius of the circle.
This is now the HEX Fractal Segment Length for resonance calculation, for coupling other vibrational elements into the disk.
One can cut wires of this segment x system [multiples of this length], or other disks at this distance away.

Separation Distance


An Aluminum tube is now crafted to set the center of mass of the two discs at the same HEX fractal distance.
Tube height will be calculated
Vibrational Circumference Radius[FS] minus [-] Disk Thickness =  32.26 mm
The exact center of each discs thickness will now be spaced at the FS length [33.705 mm] and the two mass's will couple at a harmonic vibration rate across the air gap.

Stack Alignment


The top disk is now slowly rotated to align the nodes until the sharp peak of vibration manifests, or to tune any gentler effects desired.


1 - The field vibrates up stronger then expected. A very light touch to the outer edge gives strong sensations of vibration or heat.

2 - A finger down the center hole also give a strong coupling at the central node point.

3 - Scanning the air just over the Vibrational Circumference, with a self resonant wire, seen in the background, indicates more nodes then expected. The disk has broken up into 12 vibrational nodes over this circle while only 6 were expected. As well sliding the large wire down the center reveals strong nodes at top and bottom at center of both disks inside the hole.

4 - Passing a finger through the air gap between the discs is also a surprise.
The self resonant copper wire in the background is ground to 90 times its diameter [#8 bare copper] and can be used to increase sensing abilities for greater accuracy.


Considering the two discs are totally random sizes, we have not altered them in any way, I am most impressed with our results. Future applications can now be applied to increase the nodal counts using higher count polygons, as well custom disks can be fabricated to hit on other known fractals such as the sun warmth vibration of 2.11 mm.


Many thanks to Cameron of c_s_s_p group for originating this concept. His original experiment is using extracted Hard Disc platters stacked to 8 high. My experiment is a duplication effort, and intended to document "polygon formula" applications of this vibrational effect.


"The outstanding idea here is that only when the harmony of exchange is derived from within itself can oscillatory activity continue perpetually."
