In this article, I have tried to give you a possible explanation about the working principle of "the Repulsin" flying saucer from Viktor Schauberger (1938-1957). This document is the synthesis of a fine analysis on pictures of real working devices, on Schauberger's researches in vortexes (implosion principle) and on some technical papers from Henri Coanda (1886-1972) and Bernouilli's principle.

An original picture of the "Repulsin" ( Above) : A flying model of a Schauberger in January 1940
This device has been built with copper and uses a very high speed motor for the main vortex turbine.

The Repulsin device is an Electro-Aero-Dynamic device (E.A.D.) and uses two effects :

These two effects combined create the so-called "implosion effect".

When the main electric engine is started, the Coanda effect begins to create a differential aerodynamic pressure between the outer and the inner surface of the primary hull. At a higher speed, the vortex chamber becomes a kind of high electrostatic generator due to the air particles in high speed motion acting as an electrical charges transporter. The "Repulsin" will begin to glow due to the strong ionization effect of the air. Now, we have all the ingredients for a continuous and strong Aether Flow along the main axis from the top to the bottom of the craft.....

The radial air pressure required for lifting 1kg with the Coanda Effect is about 1,4 kg/cm2
