Abstract

George W. Damm suggests that Nikola Tesla incorporated acoustic resonant criteria in the design and modulation of his tower at Shoreham, Long Island. At first, this seems a bit farfetched, but a pause to check the dimensions of the tower?s components and their acoustic resonant frequencies reveals that they are well-matched to the earth?s electrical resonant frequencies. Tesla?s sensitivity to sound, vibration and light, and his early work with compressed air oscillator frequency control, may have been combined in his last major project.
