Title:
Kireev's conception of the new high-speed movement
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
Kireev's conception of the high speed movement includes method and apparatus, which comprises the hull or platform (1) with the multiple supporting pylons located at the bottom of hull (1) with the Kireev's Rolling Floating Propellers (KRFP)(3) on axles (2).

KRFP (3) is a cylinder with non-correct geometric shape, which is a closed or open Archimed's spiral in cross-cut section, the one end of the KRFP (3) is turned 360° degrees angle against another end.

The uniqueness of the invention is that at its cruise speed, the vessel uses the water, repelled backward by KRFP (3) to create forward motion and lift.

In the idle state the vessel floats on the water surface because of conventional KRFP (3) displacement.

When the KRFP (3) rotates on its axles, because of continuously increasing radius, the contacting water is constantly repels from the KRFP (3) surface. Because the water does not cover KRFP (3) completely KRFP (3) repels more water down and backward, than up and forward, this creates lift, which is reduces waterplane area of the vessel and creates the forward motion.

At the very high waves, bow of the vessel with KRFP (3) can be positioned in parallel with the surface of the raising waves.

Claims:
1. Concept, method and apparatus of new way of traveling on the water surface, where rotating of the Kireev's Rolling Floating Propellers (KRFP) (3) creates the propulsion. The KRFP (3) apprises a closed “Archimed's” or other spiral with ever-increasing radius in cross section and the one end is twisted for 360° degrees to the other end. The vessel's hull or platform (1) can be mounted on the pylons or any other structure. Pylons are connected to the KRFP (3) with the shafts or axles that allow KRFP (3) freely rotate or transmit the rotation from engine. In idle state KRFP (3) is freely floating on the surface, because of displacement. When KRFP (3) start rotating, at the beginning stage the ever-increasing radius of KRFP (3) surface repels the water at the contact, creating the water flow in the down and backward direction, to the vessel's front. When KRFP (3) is rotating with the cruise speed, the amount of water, repelled backward increases, and the amount of water, repelled down decreases, to match the vessel's total weight.

2. Concept, method and apparatus of new way of traveling on the water surface as described in claim 1, in which, to increase the amount of the repelled water, the KRFP (3) has additional solid or Faltering crest (8).

3. Concept, method and apparatus of new way of travelling on the water surface as described in claim 1, in which, to increase the amount of the repelled water, the KRFP (3) has notches or bumps on the surface (4).

4. Concept, method and apparatus of new way of traveling on the water surface as described in claim 1, in which the KRFP (3) can have different radius.

5. Concept, method and apparatus of new way of traveling on the water surface as described in claim 1, in which the KRFP (3) can be replaceable, to match the different weather/sea roughness conditions.

6. Concept, method and apparatus of new way of traveling on the water surface as described in claim 1, in which the spiral in KRFP (3) is not closed and the vessel floats on the surface only because of water displacement of the vessel's hull (1).

7. Concept, method and apparatus of new way of traveling on the water surface as described in claim 1, in which the vessel can have conventional propeller water or air, to allow the vessel not rely solely on KRFP (3).

Description:

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0001] Water covers over 70% of the earth's surface and the human civilization had to learn to travel over the water surface mostly for the transportation. Until the twentieth century these methods of transportation were boats, powered by the wind and the human force.

[0002] Since inventing the steam powered and other types of engines there were many modernizations of the water travel. However the one main detail of the traveling on the water surface hasn't changed much. Vessel's hull is still sliding, floating on the water surface causing drag, which does not allow vessel to reach high speeds and forces the use of more and more powerful engines to be able to move more cargo.

[0003] Today's engineers are trying to reduce the drag by modifying the shape of the hull and using hydrofoil and hybrid vessels that use ground effect. However the height of the waves in the rough oceans and the remaining drag, greatly limits the use of such ways of traveling on the water surface.

BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0004] Kireev's conception of the high speed movement includes method and apparatus, which comprises the hull or platform (1) with the multiple supporting pylons located at the bottom of hull (1) with the Kireev's Rolling Floating Propellers (KRFP)(3) on axles (2).

[0005] KRFP (3) is a cylinder with non-correct geometric shape, which is a closed or open Archimed's spiral (4) in crosscut section and throughout its length twisted for the full 360°-degree angle.

[0006] The uniqueness of the invention is that at its cruise speed, vessel literally “rolls” KRFP (3) on the still water surface or on the tips of the waves in rough seas, allowing the vessel to reach exceptionally high speeds.

[0007] In the idle state the vessel floats on the water surface because of conventional KRFP (3) water displacement.

[0008] When the KRFP (3) rotates on its axles, because of continuously increasing radius, the contacting water is constantly repels from the KRFP (3) surface. Because the water does not cover KRFP (3) completely KRFP (3) repels more water down and backward, than up and forward, this creates lift (6), which is reduces waterplane area of the vessel and creates the forward motion (7).

[0009] At the very high waves, bow of the vessel with KRFP (3) can be positioned in parallel with the surface of the raising wave (5).

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE SEVERAL VIEWS OF THE DRAWING

[0011] FIG. 2. Shows the lifting KRFP (3) at the bow to match the KRFP (3) be almost parallel to the uphill of the wave surface.

[0012] FIG. 3. Shows the vectors (6)(7) of the forces on the surface of KRFP (3) as its repels water as it rotates.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

[0013] Kireev's conception of the high speed movement includes method and apparatus, which comprises the hull or platform (1) with the multiple supporting pylons located at the bottom of hull (1) with the Kireev's Rolling Floating Propellers (KRFP)(3) on axles (2).

[0014] KRFP (3) is a cylinder with non-correct geometric shape, which is a closed or open Archimed's spiral in crosscut section and throughout its length twisted for the full 360° degrees angle.

[0015] The uniqueness of the invention is that at its cruise speed, vessel literally “rolls” KRFP (3) on the still water or on the tips of the waves in rough seas, allowing the vessel to reach exceptionally high speeds.

[0016] In the idle state the vessel floats on the water surface because of conventional KRFP (3) displacement.

[0017] When the KRFP (3) rotates on its axles, because of continuously increasing radius, the contacting water is constantly repels from the KRFP (3) surface. Because the water does not cover KRFP (3) completely KRFP (3) repels more water down and backward, than up and forward, this creates lift, which is reduces waterplane area of the vessel and creates the forward motion (7).

[0018] At the very high waves, bow of the vessel with KRFP (3) can be positioned in parallel with the surface of the raising waves (5) by lifting the front KRFPs (3) with the devices (9) and (10).
