Big Mass Battery: Engineering Challenges
and Feasibility. Harvey Mudd College Engineering Clinic, 2015-2016,
Sponsored by BiMBy Power Company, LLC, Ray Donelick and Greg Arehart,
Proof-of-Concept BiMBy Device. On-going effort to build a
Proof-of-Concept BiMBy device to test, refine, and prove the mathematical
model of the BiMBy device that BPC has developed. That mathematical model
indicates that materials needed to build safe, effective, and
long-lasting (50-100+ years?) BiMBy devices may be had at most mine
sites. Success with this project will be a working Proof-of-Concept BiMBy
device and experimental data collected from operating the device.
