It is shown that the chemical composition data published by Carpinteri et al. in the article "Compositional and Microchemical Evidence of Piezonuclear Fission Reactions in Rock Specimens Subjected to Compression Tests" [Strain 47 (Suppl. 2), 282 (2011)] cannot be the result of independent measurements as claimed by the authors. Therefore, no conclusion can be drawn from them about compositional modifications induced in the stone by hypothetical piezonuclear reactions taking place during…

Comments on ‘Geomechanical and Geochemical Evidence of Piezonuclear Fission Reactions in the Earth's Crust’ by A. Carpinteri and A. Manuello
In ‘Geomechanical and Geochemical Evidence of Piezonuclear Fission Reactions in the Earth's Crust' [Carpinteri and Manuello, Strain (2011) 47(2), 267], the authors claim that the composition of the
Energy emissions from brittle fracture: Neutron measurements and geological evidences of piezonuclear reactions
Neutron emission measurements, by means of 3 He devices and neutron bubble detectors, were performed during three different kinds of compression tests on brittle rocks: (i) under displacement
Anomalies in fracture experiments, and energy exchange between vibrations and nuclei
A variety of anomalies have been reported in recent years in fracture experiments, including neutron emission, elemental anomalies, and alpha emission. Such anomalies are similar to those studied in
