Abstract:

THE PURPOSE OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH EFFORT IS TO INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITY OF SUPPLYING APPROXIMATELY 1 WATT OF ELECTRICAL POWER FOR ONE YEAR ON THE SEA BED WITH A NOVEL BATTERY, THE ROPE BATTERY. THE PROPOSED BATTERY WOULD LOOK VERY MUCH LIKE SMALL DIAMETER WIRE ROPE, POSSIBLYHUNDREDS OF FEET LONG. THIS UNUSUAL SHAPE PERMITS THE ROPE BATTERY TO TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF THE VASTNESS OF THE OCEAN FLOOR AND PERMITS AT GREAT RESSURE THE STEADY DIFFUSION OF REACTION PRODUCTS AWAY FROM THE BATTERY ITSELF. THE RESEARCH FOCUSES ON DEVELOPING A SEA WATER BATTERY CONSISTING OF AN INNER BUNDLE OF COATED WIRES WHICH SLOWLY CORRODE AND AN OUTER LAYER OF WIRES WHICH SIMULTANEOUSLY PROVIDE STRENGTH, ARMOR AND SURFACE ARE FOR SLOW HYDROGEN EVOLUTION.
