In the Repulsin "type B" the vortex turbine has been improved for increasing the "Implosion Effect" and thus the lifting force, so you will find below a possible explanation about the working principle of "the Repulsin" type B flying saucer from Viktor Schauberger.

The enhanced vortex turbine increases significantly the "implosion" effect in the vortex chamber. This contributes to generate a stronger thrust than the centrifugal turbine used in the Repulsin type A. By means of a suction screw-impeller, which revolved from the outside towards the inside along a cycloid spiral space-curve, the same force is generated which creates twisters, cyclones, typhoons through the effect of suction.
In 1941 some models had been built, one of them had a diameter of 2.4 meters with a small and very fast electric motor. It climbed straight up into the air so suddenly that unfortunately it hit the workshop ceiling and crashed to the ground in pieces...

The implosion motor uses the suction forces of implosion, there is no heat barrier and no sound barrier, because with friction almost entirely lacking, no heat is generated. The air flows through the rotating air inlets placed in the middle and follows the gap between the double membranes (with the wave pattern), this creates a spiral contraction of the flowing medium and creates a vacuum which increases the suction pull.

The enhanced vortex turbine uses two flat membranes with concentric rills on it. A wave pattern has been set on the upper and on the lower membrane. The upper wave is slightly out of phase with the lower wave. The air flow passes through small cavities where the volume sometimes is bigger and sometimes smaller due to the difference in phase between the upper and the lower membrane. When the air passes differents cavities it starts to pulsate. The pulsations are directly depending of the angular speed of the disc, this push-pull action creates an harmonic pulsation of energy...

The upper membrane is fixed and the lower rotates at high speed. On the edge rim there are special shaped blades ( boomerang shaped blades ). There are 120 blades ( 3 degrees spaced ).

When the air exits from the turbine at high speed, it follows the curved shape of the hull and increases also its speed while the gap decreases along its path.
