The US Energy Department has renewed its efforts to investigate the prospects for cold fusion, the supposed generation of thermonuclear energy using tabletop apparatus. While critics say that the extravagant claims behind cold fusion need to be backed with exceptionally strong evidence, there has been a small group of dedicated researches who have continued to conduct investigations. Over the years, a number of groups around the world have reproduced the original Pons-Fleischmann excess heat… 
Revisiting the cold case of cold fusion
Three years of investigation by a multi-disciplinary team into claims of ‘cold fusion’ found no evidence that the phenomenon exists, but identified a parameter space potentially worthy of further exploration.
LENR: An Off-Grid Stand-alone Energy Source
Energy crisis is slowly building up due to the increase in the amount of energy requirement in every field of human existence. Pollution free energy is in great demand due to the government norms
Thermonuclear Fusion, as a Source of Seismic Phenomena?
The theory of Mr. Reid The elastic recoil, which interprets the origin of earthquakes as the emission of elastic deformation by the earth’s crust, does not allow us to describe in detail the
From cold fusion to cold storage: A comparative case study of how organizational champions caused two scientific megaprojects to fail
The study shows that “champions” indeed enable research but simultaneously also risk becoming the downfall of the collaborative endeavors that have been set up, and uncover and analyze some of the most common types of organizational failure found in the two failed scientific megaprojects investigated.
Is a Shock Wave a Source of Seismic Events? Physics, Mechanics, and Kinematics of Mega-Earthquakes
The theory of Mr. Reid’s Elastic recoil, which interprets the origin of earthquakes as the emission of elastic deformation of rocks of the earth's crust, is a sketchy description and is not able to
Constant speed control of four-stroke micro internal combustion swing engine
The increasing demands on safety, emission and fuel consumption require more accurate control models of micro internal combustion swing engine (MICSE). The objective of this paper is to investigate
Competing for Reality
In this article, we will apply aspects of Rychlak's philosophy of science to some of the most important issues in psychology today (issues of brain versus behavior, genetic destiny, the nature of
Evolution in software systems: foundations of the SPE classification scheme
This paper re-examines the SPE taxonomy of evolving software systems and proposes a refinement of SPE that has provided a more productive basis for developing testable hypotheses and models about possible differences in the evolution of software systems.
