Re: Questions for the simulators.


How about a graph of aspect ratios and turns.

You can look at other graphs at the site to determine performance against this
data. The graph will show most geometric ratio's are between 2.5 and 5. The
graph also shows coilers keep their coils between 700 and 1,300 turns.
other graphs at the site will show arc lengths (if this is what you mean by
performance) is achieved by increasing the energy per break and with large top
loads which are accompanied by secondary wire size and heights to handle
the arc

BTW, this graph should load 70% faster than graphs I've put up the last couple
of weeks. Today I will replace the previous "slow loading" graphs with faster
loading graphs.

Eddie, why do you think an hour glass shape might have better characteristics?
