12-A. Vacuum Chamber Wall Construction
For Housing and Buildings
In 1977, I was involved in the design of the largest cement plant built to that date. I made high quality general arrangement drawings that helped to obtain a $100 million cement plant contract for Ecuador. At that time I did initial research on vacuum chambers of wall construction for housing and buildings. I made various drawings of concrete vacuum chamber exterior wall panels, the vacuum chamber floor panels, and roof panels, and interior vacuum chamber wall panels, including various house plan layouts, for interlocking these panels with each other, and steel support columns. These vacuum chamber wall panels would be built in an automated cement plant, and transported to the home site by truck. The panels interlock and are installed by a crane, and are securely anchored. All joints are completely sealed. Steel columns are located for additional structural support.
The exterior wall surfaces would have a multitude of appealing textures and come in various color combinations, including wood, fractured stone textures, sculptures, and appealing Tudor architectural designs. The concrete roof panels have wood shingle textures, red clay tile, and an assortment of other textures and colors. The interior ceiling surfaces can feature wooden beams with real wood grain textures and colors. The interior walls may have a multitude of permanent textures, patterns, sculptures and colors. All exterior wall panel surfaces will be sealed with an acrylic coating or glass coating to seal porous surfaces in order to stop the penetration of moisture, and do not require painting every 10 or 20 years. The vacuum chamber wall panels are cured and dried in large drying ovens. These homes can be offered in over 150 models, sizes, and in multitudes of exterior accents, and colors. A typical house can be installed in 2-3 days. These homes and buildings are designed to be appealing and to last more than 2 times than presently constructed houses, while being very affordable. A small concrete vacuum chamber was tested for over 3 years, and it maintained a satisfactory vacuum pressure.
These vacuum chamber wall panels can be produced for residential homes, schools, hospitals, shopping centers, stores, restaurants, office buildings, apartment buildings, motels, hotels, shops, factories, manufacturing plants, warehouses, etc. Architects can design all commercial buildings for maximum energy efficiency.
The manufacturing cost savings are approximately 40% to 50%, compared to present construction practices. The vacuum chamber design would reduce energy consumption by approx. 50% in heating and air conditioning costs. The manufacturing costs and energy savings for homes, apartments and other build-ings vary, depending upon the size, design, and geological temperatures. Any homes and buildings in hurricane and tornado prone areas are designed with additional structural supports and coatings to eliminate mildew and mold. The abundance and low cost of energy would generate large energy savings and provide very affordable housing, large international economic benefits, and employment for all services and infrastructure. All houses and apartments have to be built to provide adequate and comfortable living space in the range of 800 s.f. to 1,800 s.f. Windows are double pane and feature a low-pressure vacuum chamber. The use of wood and 2x4 & 2x6 wooden stud construction, including plywood and woodchip panel construction can be completely eliminated.
This will save our precious forests and our ecology. Trees and forests will reduce droughts, and produce more rain in agricultural regions. Trees and forests should be conserved, and reforestation is urgently needed in many countries. Local and state governments have to pass legislation to stop the unreasonable real estate prices on land and property, in order to make life bearable, and to make housing affordable to many more people. This is good for the overall economy and this country, regardless what any opposition may claim. An abundance of inexpensive energy, housing, food, jobs, medical care, and daily necessities, is not an unreasonable expectation for every citizen. Our government opposes prosperity, and plans permanent war in order to establish world economic domination, and keeps me under continuous electronic surveillance regardless of my contributions for a better future. This shows that our government is indeed against a prosperous country, and cares more for collecting taxes for more corrupt wars. Everyone will be a witness to what our government does in the near future.
In 1984, buildings constructed with vacuum chambers could have been built to duplicate deep space environments. Such buildings would have saved large sums of money in unnecessary space shuttle missions. These buildings would have been very important for conducting research and to produce a variety of new products by modifying the temperature and various gaseous environments beyond space environments. A very important research project is Ozone Depletion. Several buildings could simulate a stratospheric environment and duplicate our ozone conditions. Worldwide stratospheric ozone has decreased systematically, year round, by 2 to 4% per decade (implying UV will reach dangerous levels by the time your grandchildren are born.) Chlorofluorocarbons (CFC) produce chlorine compounds that destroy ozone in the stratosphere. This can be researched with simulated tests in a stratospheric environment, and important results can be obtained that may eventually close the ozone holes. Not only are the polar ozone holes increasing in size, but the world ozone layer is becoming thinner, and becomes more dangerous to all living species and vegetation, as well as our food supply.
The president of a large US/Canadian construction and material supply corporation appeared very interested in my vacuum chamber concept, but after reviewing my cost estimates and technical data, this company president was extremely devastating, abusive and critical in his comments in order to inflict the maximum amount of discouragement.
This is important research, but our government not only denies me research and development funds, and keeps me under constant electronic surveillance so that it is difficult for me to conduct continued research and development, and to establish a business.
