Earth’s Rotation Induces Vertical Ground Water
Maria Engström & Bo Nordell
It is well established that the Coriolis
deflects wind and water currents. However, its influence on groundwater
flow is neglected. Earth’s rotation causes inertia circles in
groundwater that create vortices ending up in different local pressure
zones, similar to the high and low pressures in air. High pressure
zones in groundwater induce, under certain conditions, a vertical flow
up to the surface. This could be the missing link where hydrostatic
pressure is not sufficient to explain springs in deserts, mountains and
on islands in the sea. Here, simulations on the Coriolis force acting
on groundwater flows are presented.
Groundwater Turnover in the North and South of Sweden
& Bo Nordell
Nutrient leakage from agricultural areas in Sweden
the autumn in the south and during the spring in the north. The
infiltration of nutrients also reaches greater depths in the south. An
occurring “seasonal groundwater turnover” similar to that in lakes is
the suggested mechanism. This thermal convection results from changing
temperatures (densities). The 10oC groundwater in southern Sweden
becomes denser as it is cooled from the surface in the autumn, while
the corresponding convection in the North occurs during the spring.
Performed simulations show how seasonal temperature variations, under
certain conditions, initiate and drive thermal convection.
The relation between fluid flow and
David Jonsson, Sweden
The author shows how a fluid stream around a vehicle
can be optimized with heating. Dissipative waves and
turbulence can be prevented. Several experiments have been made by
others showing reduced drag with heating in air although no definitive
explanation have been given to why the air drag is reduced.
The author shows a simple explanation based on
century old knowledge in the field of thermodynamics and fluid
mechanics within established laws of physics. The basic idea is to
alter the flow with volumetric forces caused by temperature gradients.
This perspective was originally applied to air, but
can have applications to all media with positive proportionality
between heating and volume expansion which means to water in some
temperature domains. Cavitation could be avoided with this technique.
Very strange effects would occur in water temperatures where the thermal
expansion coefficient is negative, between 0-4 degrees Celsius. In
those regions one would actually have to cool water in order to shape
Rethinking the ecology and conservation of a
riverine European priority
habitat in the light of Schauberger’s approach to
According to the EU Habitat Directive, the “water courses of plain to
montane levels with the Ranunculion fluitantis and Callitricho-Batrachion
vegetation” (3260) comprise the only riverine European priority habitat
containing permanent submerged vegetation communities. Additional
benefits arising from the presence of healthy water crowfoot
communities are e.g. increasing flow stability, reducing bed erosion
and maintaining abundant fish communities highly valued for anglers.
Their performance is strongly dependent on groundwater/surface water
interactions, flow diversity within a river channel and functions of
the whole catchment. Although this habitat is widely distributed
through Western and Central Europe, and despite numerous ongoing river
conservation and restoration projects and measures applied, its
conservation status is often considered as unsatisfactory. These
projects are mainly based on improving the water chemistry or bottom
substrate in river channels and do not consider the most important
issues of groundwater flow in forested and treeless catchments and
floodplains. Particularly actual climate changes affect this habitat
severely at its eastern distribution range. Starting from Schauberger’s
views on whole catchment hydrology and flow structure within channels,
it is possible to determine suitability of a particular river, to
forecast the plant species and whole community performance and improve
it with proper catchment and flow management. The Schauberger’s
approach explains also some previously published and disputed results
how management of alternating wooded and treeless zones within a
floodplain, influencing temperature gradients and ground/surface water
exchange, helps to improve stream biotic communities and reduce
detrimental effects of acid pulses in river channels.
Halve the need of energy
Experiments with planing boats at moderate speed shows that the power /
weight relation can be reduced to 1/10 from 1/3, the normal case today.
This can be achieved by cambering the planing area in front of a
transversal step or use a transversal hooked minitab to create high
lift and low drag.
The hooked minitabs technique can also be used in hydro- and aerofoils.
These foils can be designed with a wedge section and a minitab at the
trailing edge to create three interacting vortices. The positive
intention it is to use the vortices instead of avoiding them.

The Warmonderhof Flowform experiments
Hans van Sluis,
Around 1977, a research project was initiated to
test John Wilkes’ flowform method in a wastewater treatment setting. On
the premises of the Warmonderhof Agricultural College near Tiel
(Netherlands) a full scale pilot plant was built. A multi annual test
program was executed from 1980-1985, comparing in separated circuits
the influence of rhythmical flowform treatment with circulation over a
straight step cascade. Each circuit included a series of three ponds,
planted with submerged flora and macrophytes. Both chemical and
biological parameters were monitored. The results revealed a trend
towards generative plant development in the flowform circuit against
more vegetative growth in the step cascade. Also, macrofauna was more
motile and free swimming forms were predominant near the flowforms
against attached species in the step system. After 1985, the
installation has been augmented with a reed bed filter and it is
operated and kept in good condition until now.
Overview of Virbela Flow form research
Is rhythmical, vortical flow in Flowforms a way to regenerate and
enhance waters life supporting properties ? After all living organisms
show rhythmical processes or they are dead. A brief report on the
research by John Wilkes, ARCA and others of the Flow Design Research
Group International based at Emerson College in the UK.
Flowing water tends towards rhythmical flow patterns
especially at harmonic flow speeds. Karman vortex streets are a
beautiful expression of this. Flowform designers make use of this
quality to create an oscillation in water flowing through vessels.
John has recently been experimenting with surrounding the Flowform
cascade with geometrical forms. Other research and development projects
are being carried out in many countries. Flowforms are used positivly
in many connections eg with food preparation, farming,
horticulture, after treatment of turbine water etc.
Generalization of Methods for Alternative
Water Treatment Developed in Russian Speaking Countries
Due to appearance of commercially available means for alternative water
treatment, it looks reasonable to consider background concepts for
ones. In general, they are closely linked with experimental and
conceptual heritage of Austrian naturalist Viktor Schauberger. However,
recent experimental and theoretical achievements open new theoretical
views and prospective application areas able to explain and develope
his experience and concepts on the base of current knowledge. One of
such theoretical views supported by experimental achievements for water
treatment developed in Russian speaking countries is presented in this

I am a civiling. former Patent Agent and later Steiner School teacher.
Nowadays retired and Swedish Representative for Grande Technology. I
would like to talk about "The Memory of Water" and the researches made
by Masaru Emoto and how that can apply to the Grander inventions. In
connection therewith I would like to show a DVD of the Emoto
investigations. If so I could extend my talk to the applications of
Grander Technology in Industry.
Experiences with water vortex treatment
WatreCo (Water Treatment Corporation) have developed
water treaters based on Viktor Schaubergers work since 2003. In this
technology we utilize the effects of the vortex for various purposes.
By treating the water with a vortex, ice for ice skating can be
improved. Energy can also be saved as the ice laying process demands
lesser energy if vortex treated water is used.
Algae problems in ponds can be reduced or solved as
the vortex process imitates the natural cleaning process found in
rivers. As a side effect an economical aeration of the water is
In the speech some applications will be presented
together with the technical effects.
Synchronized water - Inducible natural qualities in water with profound
effects on biology and environment
Synchronized water is built on a cluster
model, where extended self-similar water clusters grow and aggregate
into an auto-stabilizing network that expands to macroscopic
proportions and affect the condition of any external water in a liquid
or gaseous state. Several examples will be presented how synchronized
water changes the outcome of ordinary physical and chemical parameters,
e.g. temperature-structure properties, pH, conductivity, redox
potential, surface tension, enzyme activity, stability of milk,
protection against ionising and non-ionising electromagnetic radiation
etc. Since water is the basic element of biological life, “sync”
conditioning promotes water as a candidate of redistribution of
emergent energy between biochemical solutes, thus reassembling
functional activity of biological systems.
Alternative Water Treatment - Effects,
Mechanisms and Perspectives on
This presentation gives a wide survey on
what alternative water treatment is, and gives examples of different
kinds of alternative water treatment devices, e.g. vortexers, indirect
water treatment and magnetic water treatment. Reported physical,
chemical, biological and general ecological effects on water are
In the same way an overview of alternative measurement
methods, such as Kirlian photography of water and different kinds of
crystallisation images, and their potential as quality indicators is
given. The natural variation and covariation of these properties is
Some experiments with effects on these properties in water
treated with alternative water treatment devices are presented. The
results indicate an effect on the oxygen uptake kinetics of water.
The relation to research on memory effects in water is
covered - including magnetic treatment of hard water, effects of
electromagnetic water treatment, the question of the existence of
nanobubbles in water and the relation to hydrophobic interactions,
together with research on homeopathic dilution and healer treated water.
This leads to somewhat new views on water and water
treatment, and the consequences for what we mean with water quality are
Research on non-conventional
Over the past decades, the market for new water treatment methods has
grown considerable. These new methods often use principles that cannot
(yet) be explained by traditional science. This contradiction i.e. a
growing market vs. unexplained phenomena forms the basis for a PhD
research project titled non-conventional water treatment.
Clinical experience of Markov's Fito-Cocktails
Application of different kinds of Bio-Information Modulation on water
macro-molecules becomes common practice now in area of alternative
medicine. Results of clinical application for Bio-Information
Modulators and processed by them Fito-Cocktails developed by Professor
G.A. Markov are presented in this paper.

Monitoring the effects of Agnihotra and modern alternative water
treatment devices on growth, structure and ecological performance of
Addition of Agnihotra ash, obtained according to a strictly performed
Vedic ritual, greatly improve the structure and diversity of algal
communities in microcosms, in relation to untreated microcosms and
these with added ash from the same material burnt in a non-ritual
manner. In the last case even typical features of hypertrophy were
observed. The improvement by Agnihotra ash was evident as increasing
share of edible algae and thus development of abundant and diverse
zooplankton and meiofauna, and growth of bottom nitrogen-fixers,
reducing initial nutrient imbalance. Elevated rates of nitrate and
phosphate consumption by sediments were characteristic for systems
treated with Agnihotra ash, as well as for treatments with modern
devices - the Austrian AQUA VITA life, and two designed by the company
Hotra (Warsaw): Quantum Exchanger and Zero-point Energy Stabilizer. A
simple routine method for rapid estimation of relative nutrient
consumption rates was designed and its suitability was tested for the
assessment of effects made by various treatments. Also, increase of
growth of Salvinia natans
- a rare and protected aquatic fern species, and improvement of frog
tadpole performance, which were observed as a result of some
alternative treatments, prove their suitability for nature conservation
programmes and for local counteraction of amphibian decline.
Chloride removal with vortex treatment
Vortex Design & Consulting Services has developed a vortex-based
water treatment system. The system is intended to be used for
reducing chlorides in waste water produced in the oil production
It can reduce the chlorides on-site - the cleaned water could be
recycled for livestock and agriculture.
By spinning the water in a cylinder, and using the atomic weight of the
minerals and by finding the frequency of the vortex we can match them
and remove the targeted contaminants without the use of filters or
chemicals. When the molecules are broken apart, contaminants are
released for easy removal in our patented design. The spinning action
causes the water molecules to break apart, thereby “structuring” the
Water Memory Induced by Electromagnetism
Pratap Singh (with Amitabh Singh and Mandavi Singh)
The effect of electromagnetism on
responses of some fungal spores created by 50-Hz-powerline-treated
water was seen. Water samples were exposed to 24.8 (RMS) and 35.0
(Peak) uT and 36.2 (RMS) and 51.2 (peak) uT power line magnetic fields
for 32 h and sampled at regular intervals of 4 h. Five hours after
exposure, germination responses of different fungal spores were
observed in treated water. The study revealed that exposure time- and
magnetic field strength-dependent different water differentially
inhibited the spore germinations of various fungi. The study further
presents the evidence for stable changes produced in water structures
by power line exposure.
Similar experiments were conducted with extra low
microwave-treated water on fungal spore germination. Water samples were
exposed to 2.71 GHz microwave at varying incident power density.
Incident and absorbed power by water were determined using power sensor
and meter. Germination responses of different fungal spores taken
from fresh cultures were studied in the microwave power-absorbed water
samples. The study revealed differential germination responses with
variation of the absorbed microwave power in water on different fungi.
Results indicated that water has the capability to store microwave
power alterations. Similar experiments were conducted with permanent
magnet-induced water on fungal spore germination with similar results.
Magnetically restructured water induces changes in rat brain also.
Fifty-hertz power line-treated magnetically restructured water induced
changes in rat brain. Triple distilled water samples were exposed to
36.2 RMS and (51.2 peak) uT power line magnetic fields for 48 h. This
magnetized water sample was given to adult male rats of Charles-Foster
strain for drinking ad libitum for a period of 30 days, at the end of
which the rats were anaesthetized with ether and then fixed by
perfusion with 10% neutral formalin. The brains were dissected out and
further fixed in the same fixative. The corresponding control rats
provided with unmagnetized triple-distilled water were similarly
treated. On gross examination, no anomaly was observed in the treated
group. On histological examination, marked spongiform changes leading
to neuronal degeneration were observed in cerebral and hippocampal
cortices. The study adds a further link in demonstrating that power
line exposure induced stable changes in water structures and affect
biomechanisms of tissue fluids.
Similar experiment was conducted with triple distilled water exposed to
50 Hz-power line electromagnetic field strength of 51.2 uT on rat
kidney. Histological examination of treated kidney revealed marked
spongiform changes leading to degeneration and compensatory
proliferation of the glomerular tufts and degeneration of the living
epithelia of the tubules. The so magnetized water also affects the
hematological parameters in rats. All the above studies demonstrate
that power line, extra low frequency microwaves and permanent magnet
induce stable changes in water structure that affect5 differently in
different biological systems.
Physical effects of potentiation of water

Thermodynamic and electrical effects in vortexes
It is possible to produce kinetic energy –
hence electricity - from ambient heat and pressure. In 1841, J
Espy showed that cyclones must be latent heat driven. This is released
when moisture condenses inside them.
A single large cyclone releases many times more kinetic
energy than is
converted into electric power in all the power stations on the planet.
Vortex thermodynamics is explained in terms of "toothpaste
working fluid parcels.
Once this process has been understood, it becomes possible to produce
kinetic energy and distilled water from ambient air – as Torricelli
knew in the early 1600s. Similar considerations apply to the flow of
electrons (Fermi-Dirac temperature) through suitably shaped conductors
and Schauberger's whorl pipes.
A Mathematical model of turbulent physics
Moldovan and Ukrainian scientists fave and soon
Potapovs (J.S.Potapov, S.J.Potapov) and L.P.Fominsky published a book
“The Energy of Rotation” . In the chapter
4 of this book we can find a conclusion that “the body will emit two
joules of energy for every joule of energy used to rotate the body.” It
is an experimental result of the work carried out
by these scientists. The result was obtained after the thermal
generator had been created,
where the torsional movement was given to the water stream flowing
through the tube.
This was confirmed by the new spatial mathematics,
where 1 =(3) 1 + 1
or 1 =(3) 2. The common planar mathematics fails to explain such
energetic misbalance. This proves that the excess of energy can
be obtained using clear torsional technologies.
In 2005 we performed experiments using
Crook‘s radiometer. The most interesting thing is that the mill turns
not only after the beams of light are directed perpendicularly to the
wings, but also from below or from above, for example, when the light
of the sun is directed from above or when the graph projector is used
with the flow of light coming upwards from below.
An experiment: when the wings are lighted by the
polarized light from
above, they fail to spin. Thus we can assume that light has not
only an undulatory and corpuscular, but also a torsional nature,
or only a torsion nature.

Reconstruction of Repulsine models
German association of Implosion Research, Germany
In 1995 the German association of implosion research
was founded in Offenburg with the target to publish unknown originals
of Viktor Schauberger in the Implosion magazine. In parallel we
installed a working group in Zell a.H. which tried to reconstruct
different types of the repulsine. By use of copper membranes
manufactured in Austria based on the original press matrix we had been
able to build models close to the original of 1945.
First tests referred to the question if it would be
possible to run those discs with such high speed as mentioned in the
literature. We got stability problems beyond 7000 rpm and the discs had
been deformed. Application of quartz and other ingredients listed in a
few Schauberger letters brought new experiences in relation to
speed-torque-characteristics but no appreciable breakthrough.
The reconstruction of an older model based on a plan
from 1942 showed some interesting temperature behaviour. During
application of water dust we could measure a drop of temperature up to
Future research will deal with application of
catalysts like quartz and silica gel based on historical tradition of
engineer Halik, a narrow assistant of Viktor Schauberger.
Vortex interpreted at the light of Chaos and
The present study is, in some way, the continuation
of my work presented in IWONE 2 four year ago. Here the main points are
the Irreversibility of
dynamical systems that causes the Chaotic
behaviour in very known cases. The vortex activity in general, but
mainly in fluids, like water and gases, is a paradigmatic example.
Classical Dynamics (CD) cannot cope with those problems
because of its inherent reversibility.
For instance the “Navier-Stokes” equations, based on
Newtonian dynamics, are reversible and should be of little aid in the
vortex research. The New Dynamics (ND) is
irreversible when the particle mass m is not a
constant: m = m(t) ; but is reversible if
mo = constant. Nevertheless, in both cases, the particle
trajectory is different of the classical one. This fact is analyzed in
Also, very simple mechanical systems
that show an irreversible and chaotic behaviour,
creating and destroying angular momentum, are presented here. The
spherical pendulum is a very well known mechanism, and is an
example of chaotic attractor. The bullet traversing a
crystal plate without crashing it, and the great efficacy of a hammer,
are examples of no constant mass in the ND frame.
The galaxies form and classification may be an
heuristic model of irreversibility, vortex, chaos and
bifurcation. The atmospheric dynamics follows also an
irreversible and chaotic path. Also it is well known the
impossibility of weather prediction for more than one or two
weeks. It is impossible to repeat a single day, month, year,
millenium, …; unexpected climatic changes can take place in
a short time interval; "climatic change" may be due to this
fact, apart of carbon dioxide.
The double screw flow shape. Patents, scientific investigations and an
assessment of it’s contribution to cause the human chest cavity
This lecture suggests a specific flow shape in the
blood circulation causing the human chest cavity vacuum due to it’s suction
Although the chest cavity vacuum was already utilized
in 1904 by the surgeon Ferdinand Sauerbruch, it’s cause is unsettled till
Firstly the presentation explains the function of the chest cavity
vacuum to enable the respiration process. Furthermore, a particular flow
shape evoking suction effects in moved media on specific conditions will
be presented. This flow shape was described by Viktor Schauberger. It can
be designated as double screw flow shape. It is evoked within liquids flowing
in particular shaped pipes, vessels and vascular. Several respective patents
will be shown. These patents aim at generating this particular flow shape
in moved media (water, air) and use the evoked suction effects for technical
purposes. Already available scientific measurements of the flow behavior
of respective pipes and follow-up investigations will be summarized and
assessed. Finally it will be reported about a “water oscillator” - a device
using vortex effects to cause a pulsing of a jet of water. This device
can be considered as a basic model of the effects in the Schauberger Kudu
The presentation outlines the fundamental principle
of the double screw flow shape and it’s possible contribution in causing
the human chest cavity vacuum.
