  • Electromagnetically activated hypersonic ducts. 

    Macleod, Christopher (British Interplanetary Society, 2009-03)
    MACLEOD, C., 2009. Electromagnetically activated hypersonic ducts. Journal of the British Interplanetary Society, 62(3), pp. 99-109.
    This paper explores the use of Electromagnetic Radiation as an alternative to combustion in Scramjet-like hypersonic engines. The radiation is absorbed by the flow, heating it and thereby providing an alternative to the ...
  • A reconsideration of electrostatically accelerated and confined nuclear fusion for space applications. 

    Macleod, Christopher; Gow, Kenneth S. (British Interplanetary Society, 2010)
    MACLEOD, C. and GOW, K. S., 2010. A reconsideration of electrostatically accelerated and confined nuclear fusion for space applications. Journal of the British Interplanetary Society (JBIS), Volume 63 Number 5/6, pp. 192 - 205
    Most present-day research into Nuclear Fusion concentrates on high-temperature plasmas combined with Inertial or Magnetic Confinement. However, there exists another body of less well-known work based on Electrostatic ...
  • Some practical aspects of electromagnetic activation. 

    Macleod, Christopher; Gow, Kenneth S.; Capanni, Niccolo Francesco (The British Interplanetary Society, 2010)
    MACLEOD, C., GOW, K. S. and CAPANNI, N. F., 2010. Some practical aspects of electromagnetic activation. The Journal of the British Interplanetary Society (JBIS), 62 (9), pp. 320-331.
    Electromagnetic Activation (EMA) is an alternative to combustion in Scramjet-like hypersonic engines. The basis of the system was outlined in previous publications. This paper builds on these results and explores some ...
