! The Study of Water (Hydrology)

““Understand Nature, then copy Nature,” was [Viktor] Schauberger's motto.”

–“The Burial of Living Technology” by Jeane Manning from Jonathan Eisen. Suppressed Inventions & Other Discoveries: Revealing the World's Greatest Secrets of Science and Medicine. Garden City Park, New York: Avery Publishing Group, 1999, page 196. ISBN # 0–89529–809–0

“Incidents such as this taught Schauberger that water needs to be cool––about 4C [celsius]––even as it bubbles out of the ground. Without a shaded exit, he found, water will not “grow” to a great height underground and emerge as the mountaintop spring. As well as temperature, time spent maturing in underground rocks provides minerals which help make water spark with energy.

Schauberger noticed beautiful vegetation growing around natural springs––an indication of “mature” mineralized energetically–charged water. These concepts, of water having qualities such as strength and maturity, were not found in any textbooks or lecture notes. The brash forester later told hydrologists to abandon their microscopes and testing laboratories, and instead study water holistically in its environment. He found natural watercourses to be alive with inherent intelligence, and not to be mere movements of a chemical substance.”

“Regardless of his bitter battles with the scientific community, Schauberger believed in the scientific method. He experimented on liquids and gases in a small laboratory he set up. His aim however, was to develop a science which actually worked [on principles opposite to the orthodox viewpoint]. “Humanity has committed a great crime by ignoring the use of cycloidal motion of water,” he said. For example, the current water–pumping devices were not only uneconomical, he said, “they cause water to degenerate by depriving it of its biological values.”

Attempts to explain connections between cycloidal motion and levitation to a scientist are useless, Schauberger said bitterly. Nor are world leaders any help “because they lean on the ignorance of the masses, including the scientists, as well as … current physical laws, to safeguard their vested interestes and positions.”

Conventional energy conversion––burning of fossil fuels or atom–splitting––turns order into chaos. Schauberger proposed processes which would add order and energy to substances such as water, instead of destroying it, while generating useful electric power.”

“Neither water treatment nor waste treatment can be a satisfactory remedy for pollution of our watercourses by pesticide sprays or by salt used for melting snow and ice on our highways. These materials must be controlled at their point of use, because they are damaging to land, plants and animals, as well as to water. Similarly, excess soil erosion cannot be abated by water or waste water treatment. Better land use is needed. In water quality problems, the whole environment must be examined.”

–Tom Camp in Water and its Impurities

“The water under the ground acts like a magnet attracting rain from the clouds, and the rain in the clouds acts as a magnet raising the water table under the ground to the roots of our crops and plants.”

–The Hopi, 1968

“There must be new a contact between men and the earth; the earth must be newly seen and heard and felt and smelled and tasted; there must be a renewal of the wisdom that comes with knowing clearly the pain and the pleasure and the risk and the responsibility of being alive in this world.”

–Wendell Berry

“A change in consciousness must occur in order for us to share water and use it wisely.”

–Barbara Helen Harmony

“I love you Water. I love Water as I love myself. We are All ONE.”

–Irucka Embry

“… I love you water and thank you water”

–Irucka Embry in “Water for Life” (20 April 2012) from Balancing the Rift: ReCONNECTualizing the Pasenture

    • pfcalc stands for pipe friction calculator and is a CLI program that computes pressure drop in piping systems using the Darcy–Weisbach equation. The program is capable of computing minor and major pressure losses (pipe friction losses) for flow in pipes and ducts. The aim is to provide an open source alternative to similar proprietary software. The intended user base is made of those people working in the fields of mechanical and civil engineering, who need to estimate pressure drop in new or existing piping systems. Since the program and it's GUI front–ends are open source software, the users can study the inner workings and decide for themselves if the calculations made with pfcalc are accurate. Also, the software is free, as in beer and as in speech, and can be used, modified and distributed according to the GNU General Public License... The program is written in the C programing language and can be compiled on all POSIX operating systems (Linux/BSD/Unix–like OSes) and also on 32–bit / 64 bit MS Windows (NT/2000/XP/Vista/7). Also it has been reported to compile and run on OS/2. Data can be fed through command line arguments or can be read from a comma separated values file (csv). This is a text file that contains values separated by commas and can be exported from various spreadsheet programs. Every line is a data set that contains the following values, in this order: diameter, length, roughness, elevation, flow–rate, minor loss coefficient (K–factor), temperature. The program will read the file, make a calculation for every data set and print the result. Calculation results can be exported to a csv file that will contain a result per line, with values in this order: diameter, length, roughness, flow, temperature, velocity, Reynolds number, Darcy factor, hydrostatic pressure loss, minor pressure loss, major pressure loss. The formulae used by pfcalc can be downloaded in pdf and odf formats.

    • The Penn State Integrated Hydrologic Model (PIHM) is a multiprocess, multi–scale hydrologic model where the major hydrological processes are fully coupled using the semi–discrete finite volume method. The model itself is “tightly–coupled” with PIHMgis, an open–source Geographical Information System designed for PIHM. The PIHMgis provides the interface to PIHM, access to the digital data sets (terrain, forcing and parameters) and tools necessary to drive the model, as well as a collection of GIS–based pre– and post–processing tools. Collectively the system is referred to as the Penn State Integrated Hydrologic Modeling System. The modeling system has been written in C/C++, while the GIS interface is supported by Qt. The Penn State Hydrologic Modeling System is open source software, freely available for download at this site along with installation and user guides.

The MWD software also provides a tool to summarize several physical and environmental characteristics of the delineated watersheds. The MWD tool is designed to create a shapefile containing watershed boundaries for multiple stream sites within a large region and provide data characterizing those watersheds. If the user only needs to delineate and calculate stream watershed attributes for small numbers of watersheds, it may be easier to use other software such as the interactive TauDEM software (http://hydrology.usu.edu/taudem/taudem5.0/index.html).

    • ANUGA [Australian National University (ANU) and Geoscience Australia (GA)] is a Free & Open Source Software (FOSS) package capable of modelling the impact of hydrological disasters such as dam breaks, riverine flooding, storm–surge or tsunamis. ANUGA is based on the Shallow Water Wave Equation discretised to unstructured triangular meshes using a finite–volumes numerical scheme. A major capability of ANUGA is that it can model the process of wetting and drying as water enters and leaves an area. This means that it is suitable for simulating water flow onto a beach or dry land and around structures such as buildings. ANUGA is also capable of modelling difficult flows involving shock waves and rapidly changing flow speed regimes (transitions from sub critical to super critical flows).
