The Atomic Show #129 – Atomic Gas Turbines
On March 30, 2009, I had the privilege of presenting a talk at my alma mater on the topic of nuclear heated Brayton cycle machines – also known as atomic gas turbines or Adams EnginesTM.
This episode of The Atomic Show is my first attempt at an enhanced podcast using chapter markers and trying to add a slide presentation. The constraints of the file format truncates the edges of the slides, but I think you will get the gist of what they are trying to show. Here is a link to the presentation in PDF format (warning – it is a 12.4 MB file), just in case you are interested in seeing the full size slides.
As always, feedback and constructive criticism is welcome. Of course, if you have something nasty to say, feel free to add that as well – I can always used the delete button if necessary.

Very good explaination of AAE. Dialog from the class really helps someone understand how AAE works. It should be add to the AAE website.
While I enjoyed this podcast for what I had learned. I find the most entertaining podcasts have a lot of dialog between you and your guests. People would rather hear smart people joke around and interact with each other than with techology. Mix the human interaction with with education, and people will learn. People are also more likely believe a group of people who agree on a theme than one person giving a well thoughtout arguement.

The comments are interesting too…
This podcast was arguably one of your best. Because it explained your reactor. The use of nitrogen to be able to use an off the shelf turbine is wise. Simple is better. K.I.S.S. Nice job.
And the slides were good too — although I could only look at them a red traffic lights.
