Biography

Peter Graneau was born March 21, 1921 in Lissau, Poland (in the German region) and earned both his BS (1955) and PhD (1962) from the University of Nottingham, England, where he still maintains his citizenship. Emigrating to the US in 1967, Dr. Graneau worked at Simplex Wire & Cable Co until F 1971, when he became a research scientist at M.I.T. In the early 1980s, Graneau's experiments with railguns led him to seek solutions based on Ampere's original force law as an alternative to the unsatisfactory solutions of conventional electrodynamics. In 1985 he moved to Northeastern University, where he conducted some of his most significant experiments before retiring in 1990. He proposed Amperian electrodynamics to explain longitudinal forces along the direction of current flow, and devised experiments to produce longitudinal explosions or arcs in water from these forces. Joined by his colleague and son Neal, Dr. Graneau has published dozens of articles and books demonstrating that Amperian action-at-a-distance mechanics explain many phenomena regarded as anomalies in mainstream science. Among the most interesting and incisive writers about the problems of contemporary physics today, their books include Newton versus Einstein (1993), Newtonian Electrodynamics (1996), and In the Grip of a Distant Universe (2006). The Graneau team numbers among the several dissidents who have produced convincing experimental evidence contradictory to the predictions of Maxwell-Lorentz-Einstein electrodynamic theory. The series of experiments on water arcing, detailed in Unlimited Renewable Solar Energy from Water (2006), has profound implications in the field of New Energy. In his retirement, he continues to co-edit Infinite Energy magazine.

Obituary

Dr. Peter Graneau of Concord, MA died Tuesday Feb. 25, 2014 at Rivercrest Nursing Home in Concord. He was born on March 13th 1921 in Silesia where his father was a landowner and business man. After the war, that part of Germany was annexed by Poland and his parents were able to move to a property they owned further west. Since his studies at the University of Berlin had been interrupted by the war, he was able to move to England, become a British subject and attend the University of Nottingham, where he was awarded the B.Sc. (First Class Honours) and PhD. Degrees. He was later appointed a Fellow of the British Institute of Physics.

After university, he joined a large industrial laboratory (British Insulated Callender's Cables) as assistant research manager and his aim was to bring about collaboration between industry and academia, at that time not a common practice. He was very successful in initiating many joined projects especially in the advancement of standard electrical cables, developing novel forms of electrical energy transmission and even contributing to the electrification of Britain's railway network.

In the early 1960's, he was asked to serve on a US committee under the auspices of the ?Highway Beautification Act?, championed by Lady Bird Johnson. His part in the grand scheme to improve the urban and rural US landscape was to underground the unsightly electrical overhead power corridors that blight the environment. He eventually forged a conglomerate of Simplex Wire & Cable, Arthur D. Little and MIT and in 1967, together with his wife and son, moved to Concord, Massachusetts to lead this project.

As a consequence of the Vietnam war, the funding for this enormous enterprise was withdrawn and he formed a consulting company called Underground Power Corporation and at the same time established an electrodynamics and power transmission laboratory at MIT with funding from the US National Science Foundation and Department of Energy. There he developed promising novel power transmission prototypes such as cryogenically cooled and sodium power cables and high voltage switchgear and filed many patents in the field. This work culminated in his first book, Underground Power Transmission (Wiley, 1979).

In his MIT laboratory in the late 1970's, he was also able to follow up lines of thought that had originally arisen in his PhD work. Research into the history, derivation and his recent experimental confirmations of the original law of electrodynamics proposed by Andre Marie Amp?re, provided a revolutionary insight into the inconsistencies within currently taught physics. It also shone a beacon into how modern physics could be simplified and rationalised by a return to the Newtonian concept of ?Instantaneous Action At A Distance?. This work would remain the basis and motivation for his research throughout the remainder of his career. He was able to take advantage of the ?in house? computer skills of his teen-age son to perform all of the calculations required to model the early electrodynamics experiments. This close scientific collaboration has continued until today and was a great pleasure for both men. His first book on the subject was entitled Ampere-Neumann Electrodynamics of Metals (Hadronic Press, 1984). While his son, Dr. Neal Graneau, was at Oxford University, UK, they co-authored two further books in this area, Newton vs. Einstein: How Matter Interacts with Matter (Carlton Press, 1993) and Newtonian Electrodynamics (World Scientific, 1996).

During the 1980's ? 90's, he was also a visiting professor at Northeastern University, Boston MA. During this time, he formed an international research team engaged in the high current pulsed arc liberation of stored hydrogen bond energy from water. He published more than a dozen papers in this area which has opened the door to a vast new source of clean and renewable energy. It is still an active area of research in the UK and The Netherlands.

His last book, also co-authored with his son, In the Grip of the Distant Universe: The Science of Inertia (World Scientific, 2006), explored the philosophical ramifications of his earlier electromagnetism work and applied it to understanding the fundamental force of inertia. The primary implication is that the inertia that we feel on earth and which makes all objects resist acceleration in proportion to their mass, is due to instantaneous force interactions between every atom and every other atom in the universe. This highly thought provoking ?preconventional? concept contradicts much of the philosophy of modern physics, but agrees with all known experiments and provides a vastly simpler framework with which to understand the laws of nature.

In 2006, he became an editor of the US journal ?Infinite Energy? and was able to contribute more broadly to unconventional energy research as well as furthering his renewable energy interests by promoting the science of liquid bond energy liberation for the benefit of mankind. In 2009, he received the Sagnac award from the Natural Philosophy Alliance ?in recognition of a lifetime commitment to excellence in scientific pursuit, for experiments in water plasma explosions and railgun recoils, and for theoretical presentations of Amperian longitudinal forces, instantaneous Machian interactions, and the unique role of water in renewable energy.? His publication list of 5 books and around 150 refereed publications leaves a lasting legacy in the fields of physics and engineering.

He is survived by his wife, Brigitte, an advisor in Fine Art. They were married in Buckfast Abbey, England in 1955 and their son Neal was born in London in 1963. After their move to the US in 1967, they made their home in Concord, where he loved to write, play tennis, sail and he thoroughly enjoyed life in the woods. Throughout his career, he nevertheless performed experiments in many laboratories throughout North America and Europe and especially enjoyed his professional visits to his son's pulsed power laboratory at the University of Oxford, UK. He was proud to have become one of Concord's authors, and will be laid to rest there in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery.

A Memorial service will be held on Tuesday, March 4th at 3:00 PM in the Duvall Chapel, Deaconess Rd, Newbury Court, Concord MA. A private family burial will be held in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. Funeral arrangements are under the care of Susan M. Dee and Charles W. Dee, Jr., Dee Funeral Home of Concord. To Share a remembrance in Dr. Peter Graneau's guest book visit www.deefuneralhome.com.

Description

The book deals with the resurgence of nineteenth century electromagnetism in physics and electrical engineering. It describes a series of important experiments, and new technologies based on these experiments, which cannot be explained by and analyzed with the modern relativistic electrodynamics of the twentieth century. The Newtonian electrodynamics of Coulomb, Ampere, Neumann, and Kirchhoff, which was current from 1750 to 1900, is fully reviewed and greatly extended to deal with contemporary research on exploding wires, railguns and other electromagnetic accelerators, jet propulsion in liquid metals, arc plasma explosions, capillary fusion, and lightning phenomena. Much of the book is based on the atomic definition of the Amperian current element. Finite element techniques for solving many electrodynamic problems are described. 

Fusion Facts, 1996

Many important and new observations that should be of equal interest to both the professional and the intelligent lay reader ... excellent book ... The application of some of these concepts developed by the authors can save many millions of dollars a year in electrical power costs in just the aluminum industry. There are and will be many other valuable commercial applications of the study of Newtonian Electrodynamics ... If you are seriously interested in cold fusion and new energy developments, or if you are an electrical engineer, a scientist, or a teacher of science, this book is a must-read for you. If you are an intelligent lay person or professional, you will find this book full of interesting insights into the history and practice of electrodynamics.

Thomas E Phipps, Jr., Galilean Electrodynamics, 1997

"This book represents a remarkably dispassionate presentation of the case for the application of neo-Newtonian methods in the analysis of electrodynamic phenomena ... Highly recommended to the open-minded, and to any who agree with Maxwell about the "prudential" role of pluralism in ensuring the health of science and, indeed, in ensuring its life."

Description

This book presents the history of the science of inertia. Nobody denies the existence of the forces of inertia, but they are branded as "fictitious" because they do not fit smoothly into modern physics. Named by Kepler and given mathematical form by Newton, the force of inertia remains aloof because it has no obvious local cause.  Table of contents: http://www.worldscibooks.com/phy_etextbook/6087/6087_toc.pdf.

Description

Newton Versus Einstein is not merely a critique of contemporary physics, nor just an outline of the debate between followers of the scientific philosophies of Newton and Einstein. It points the way to new technologies, from space accelerators to high-current switches and improved metal refining.

Newton Versus Einstein examines the history of ideas surrounding the debate between followers of Newton and Einstein regarding their scientific philosophies. This thought-provoking volume proves that physics today is the same in its vulnerability to change via experimentation as it was when Galileo fought the dogmatic resistance to his ideas and discoveries. Civilization owes much of its existence to technology, which has its roots in the scientific revolution of the 17th century.

Description

Before Maxwell there was Ampere, and Ampere's equation for forces between charges is still the most accurate way of calculating those forces. As Peter Graneau shows in this groundbreaking book, the Lorentz formulation of electrodynamic laws is simply inadequate. Experiments by Graneau and others show that the century-long attempt to seat electromagnetic reaction forces in space itself must be in error: the reaction forces are always on the sources of action, contrary to the viewpoint of quantum electrodynamics. Read this book if you are willing to have your scientific preconceptions challenged!

Keywords: Special Relativity

Lookup: special relativity (125), relativity (390), special (175)

Abstract:

The 2005 John Edgar Chappell Memorial Lecture of the Natural Philosophy Alliance. Over the course of some years I had many long and intense telephone conversations with John Chappell. We were in full agreement with regard to the unsatisfactory status of the teaching of physics. Our arguments concerned what the Natural Philosophy Alliance should do to try and remedy the situation. John felt our primary purpose was to reveal to the profession and the general public what is wrong with Einstein?s relativity theories. My view has been - and still is - that science would be better served if we proposed and discussed alternative physics paradigms. To honor Chappell?s wish in this lecture I will comply with it and criticize relativity theory.

Lookup: special relativity (125), relativity (390), special (175), electrodynamics (68), newtonian (13), laws (13), maxwell (22)

Abstract:

We comment on and translate Gustav Kirchhoff?s important paper of 1857 entitled ?On the motion of electricity in conductors.? The significance of this paper is that Kirchhoff proved with action at a distance that electric disturbances travel along wires of negligible resistance with the velocity of light. He accomplished this with the laws of Newtonian electrodynamics (Coulomb, Ampere, F. Neumann and Weber) before Maxwell had formulated his equations.

Abstract:

Peter and Neal Graneau present some strong experimental and theoretical arguments for the validity of Ampere?s electrodynamics and Newton?s action-at-a-distance, in place of the current-day ?field? concepts. They are certainly eminently qualified to question such issues. Peter Graneau has given ESJ permission to extract portions from Newton versus Einstein. This article presents excerpts from the chapter, ?Fact and Fiction in Electrodynamics.?

The Pivoted Current Element and Diamagnetism

(1987)

Dr. Peter Graneau
205 Holden Wood Road, Concord, MA 01742, United States; petergraneau@aol.com, (978) 369-7936

Progress in Space-Time Physics , pp. 252-268


Abstract:

Experimentally demonstrated Ampere tension cannot be the result of forces acting only on conduction electrons. Therefore a new model of the metallic current-element has been developed. It comprises the conduction electron and the lattice ion which jointly form an electric dipole pivoted at the lattice site. This dipole is capable of transferring mechanical forces of electromagnetic origin directly to the body of the metal, as required by Ampere's force law. With the aid of Neumann's electrodynamic potential and the principle of virtual work it is shown that pivoted current-elements should exert mutual torques on each other which give rise to the induction of electromotive forces. Furthermore, the elemental mutual torques set up diamagnetic currents which have the magnetic appearance of ordinary conduction currents but do not involve charge transport. The induction of diamagnetic currents leads directly to the Meissner effect in superconductors. These currents assume the role of persistent screening currents and are accompanied by the expulsion of the magnetic vector potential and Neuman's electromagnetic potential (magnetic energy) from the interior of the superconductor. In this model the quenching of superconductivity by a magnetic field is replaced by diamagnetic saturation. The theory predicts the Meissner effect should occur in a superconducting ring surrounding a very long solenoid, that is in a region where the magnetic field is effectively zero. Hence the validity of the pivoted current-element model may be tested by experiment.

Abstract:

The concept of potential energy and the principle of energy conservation arose first in the middle of the nineteenth century when Newton's 'Principia' was already 170 years old. Quite remarkably, physics had progressed without much thought being given to energy. All this changed with Helmholtz 1847 epoch-making lecture on the conservation of energy, a principle which crossed the borders between all branches of science.

The first important papers dealing with potential energy were published by F.E. Neumann in 1845 and 1847. A potential energy paradox is pointed out. Positive and negative potential energy do not add algebraically! We have to conclude that positive and negative potential energy are two different kinds of energy which might as well have been named "red" and "green" energy.

Abstract:

In the 'Dialogues concerning two new sciences' [1] Galileo (1564-1642) wrote: "I, Simplicio, who have made the test, can assure you that a cannon ball weighing one or two hundred pounds, or even more, will not reach the ground by as much as a span ahead of a musket ball weighing only a half a pound." Whether or not this experiment was performed before the doubting professors of the University of Pisa by dropping weights from the Leaning Tower is still being discussed by historians. The debate takes away nothing from the stunning discovery by Galileo which will forever remain a landmark of science. What kind of force counteracted the force of gravitational attraction to the center of the earth by just the right amount to make the heavy object fall no faster than the light object?

Estimating the Strength of Water-Arc Explosions

Abstract:

The paper mentions the essential experimental and theoretical facts which rule out heat as being the driving force of water-arc explosions. The only reasonable explanation of these powerful explosions is the presence in the water of electrodynamic forces. The pinch forces are shown to make a negligible contribution to the arc expansion forces. The analysis had, therefore, to be directed toward longitudinal Ampere forces and their hydrostatic translation to lateral outward pressure. Only order of magnitude estimates have so far been made of Ampere-pressure generation in liquid conductors. It is hoped the paper will be the beginning of the development of an Ampere magneto-hydrostatic theory.

(Physics World is the membership journal of the British Institute of Physics.) The first paragraph of Yang's article reads:

In advance of the G8 summit held in Germany last month, U.S. President George Bush reiterated his view that to tackle global climate change is through technology, rather than by regulating emissions of green house gases. . . He is not alone in this view. Indeed political leaders of all persuasions, including U.S. Senators Hillary Clinton and Charles Schumer, as well as many scientists, are arguing that global warming can only be solved through a crash research and development programme similar to the Manhattan or Apollo projects.

Abstract:

The most significant new energy development of the past hundred years has been electricity generation with nuclear reactors. This complex technology was stamped out of the ground in a couple of decades because of a guilty conscience of scientists and the U.S. government for having created nuclear weapons. Under the banner of ?atoms for peace? Eisenhower promised that the nuclear sword would be beaten into a nuclear plowshare.

The ?atoms for peace? campaign soon ran into trouble. A chief concern became the proliferation of nuclear arms. Where there are nuclear power plants, there exists the possibility of producing plutonium for weapons of mass destruction. This alone is sufficient reason to halt the construction of further nuclear power plants. But it was for additional problems of the nuclear industry that new plant construction in the United States virtually ceased in the late 1970s...

Abstract:

If Mach's Principle is not valid, how does the universe negate the effects of its mass to accomodate more far-out theories like warped space and the Big Bang? The following is a slightly opinionated condensed version of Chapter 7 from Peter and Neal Graneau's book, In the Grip of the Distant Universe: The Science of Inertia (River Edge, NJ: World Scientific, 2006). The net (Gm1m2/r2) force from all bodies in a Newtonian universe, acting on an object, should be measurable. Mach and others were certain this force was what other scientists referred to as the mysterious inertial force. Misperceptions about the cosmos have allowed detracting theories to gain traction, but more recent scienctific discoveries are corraborating Mach's claims.



Oersted's Task Remains Incomplete

Abstract:

The 1998 call for a missing magnetic force law [1] has not produced an answer giving the mutual force and torque between two magnetic dipoles, one being an Amperian current element and the other a paramagnetic (or ferromagnetic) atom. That such interactions exists was the essence of Oersted's 1820 discovery of electromagnetism. Three responses [2, 3, 4] were published which discuss the subject. A number of scientists have confirmed the experiment of retrograde railgun motion with a steel armature. They submitted their findings in private communications. Of particular interest are two new experimental facts provided by Ligon [5] and Mueller [6].

Ligon found that if the armature is a metallic permanent magnet rod, this rod will roll either in the forward or the retrograde direction, depending on the magnetic rod polarity in relation to the direction of current flow through the rod. This seems to prove that the magnetic interaction between rails and armature is superimposed on the electrodynamic Ampere interactions. The missing force law must agree with this finding.

Mueller suspended the whole railgun circuit on strings to form, what we have called, an impulse pendulum [7]. He then found that when the steel rod rolled in the retrograde direction. the rail "recoil" was also reversed and became a forward motion. This proves that the magnetic interaction forces between the rails and the unmagnetized steel armature are definitely mutual attractions overpowering the Ampere electrodynamic repulsions.

Some investigators have argued that the retrograde armature motion may be a result of the mechanics of rolling. When the center of the horizontal armature acceleration force lies below the rod axis, they suspect, the rod may roll in the opposite direction to the force. Textbooks on the Newtonian mechanics [8] show this to be incorrect. In slip-free rolling, the instantaneous center of rotation is not the rod axis. but a line through the points of contact between rod and rails. Any horizontal force perpendicular to the rod axis will therefore transport the armature in the same direction as the applied force. regardless of whether this force is applied above or below the rod axis.

Nasilowski [2] points out that our understanding of magnetism advanced by three giant leaps during the second millennium. The last of the great discoveries was made by Oersted when he revealed the interaction of a compass needle with an electric current. The microscopic mechanism underlying this discovery has remained concealed in spite of the introduction of field theory, atomism, the electron theory, and quantum mechanics. We're dealing with a very hard problem.

Dring [3] is undoubtedly correct in stressing that more attention should be paid to spins and magnetic moments of fundamental particles. It is interesting that he thinks of spins as consisting of magnetic dipoles. The Ampere current element is such a dipole. Magnetic flux density and Maxwell's equations are unlikely to be of any help. Retrograde railgun motion is an instance in which B is not equal to (mu)H. Magnetic and electric dipoles not only produce mutual attractions and repulsions; they also give rise to mutual torques.

Hughes [4] appears to believe that metallic current-carrying circuits always tend to deform themselves so that the stored magnetic (potential) energy is minimized. This applies to retrograde rail gun motion but not to the forward motion of a non-magnetic armature. In the latter case the forward force and motion increases the loop self-inductance and with it the stored energy 1/2LF, where i is the instantaneous current.

Worst of all, retrograde rail gun motion literally flies in the face of quantum electrodynamics (QED). In our book [7] we devote a whole chapter to "The railgun: Testbed of the Newtonian electrodynamics". Field theory and QED require energy to fly from the battery, between the rails, to the armature and give up its momentum on impact with the armature. We have shown that if momentum is conserved. E=mc2 is violated by a huge factor. In QED this traveling energy consists of photons which collide with the electrons of the armature and thereby produce the Lorentz force. Since QED is supposed to account for everything except gravitation and nuclear physics, it should apply to retrograde rail gun motion. The photons must then, somehow, navigate around the armature and strike it in the back. How can intelligent physicists, engineers, and mathematicians be so misled by their teachers?

The full paper will outline how retrograde railgun motion contradicts the theories of Faraday, Maxwell, Poynting, Lorentz, Einstein, and Feynman.

Abstract:

Electrodynamic pendulum experiments have shown there is insufficient magnetic energy in the field to balance the Lorentz force on metallic conductors by field-energy momentum destruction. Local action (magnetic pressure) on metal conductors is therefore an illusion that should be replaced by simultaneous far-action between current elements. This means the forces across air gaps of electric motors and generators are the action-at-a-distance forces of Amp?re-Neumann electrodynamics. Neumann's electrodynamic potential which in modern terminology is called magnetic energy, is potential energy bound to the atoms of the conductor metal The Amp?rian current element turns out to be a diamagnetic conductor atom. The diamagnetism has to arise from the electronic structure of the atom and could be an ?electron hole? left by the absent conduction electron. A finite amount of magnetic energy has been assigned to every pair of Amp?rian current elements. As a result of this, every pair of conductor elements is associated with a finite amount of mutual inductance. The mutual magnetic energy of the current element pair led to the theoretical discovery of a new ponderomotive torque and a new electromotive torque acting between the members of the current element pair. The torques involve the two angular degrees of freedom of the current elements and, therefore, have been termed the alpha-torque and the epsilon-torque.
