    Syracuse University Lava Project Interested? A free online course starts April 7th http://syracuseu.coursesites.com/ On January 22, 2011, the fifth lava pour took place using the #700 gas fired tilt furnace operated by the SU Sculpture Program. This 610lb pour was the most successful to date in terms of material consistency, volume, duration of pour, viscosity, duration of flow, structure of flow, etc. The lava was poured on to a 6” thick block of ice measuring 3.5’ by 10’. This pour was conducted for Prof. Ben Edwards, Dickinson College Earth Sciences Department. Prof. Edwards is a specialist in the area of lava and ice interaction. On February 12, 2011, Pour No. 6 will take place on a large block of ice and through a series of ice tunnels. The SU Lava Project is a joint research venture between SU Earth Sciences and SU Sculpture. For further information please contact Prof. Robert Wysocki, SU Sculpture at rjwysock@syr.edu or Dr. Jeffrey Karson, SU Earth Sciences at jakarson@syr.edu Syracuse University & Jenny Wysocki Copyright © 2014

        • Test No.3: Making a continuous lava flow with a coke-fired iron furnace. Its a Volcano.

          This short pour of 200lbs of lava was heated/fueled by coke, compressed air, and a little oxygen. This is a major development toward the goal of creating a geomorphologically accurate lava field. By switching from the gas-fired to coke-fired furnaces the cost of the project as a whole dropped 60%, now its feasible and I've solved the problem of the intermittent pours from the gas-fired furnace. By using the coke-fired furnace to produce lava, a continuous flow of lava is created; only ceasing if not recharged. It's a volcano or at least a volcanic vent. The coke-fired furnaces I've started to build will accommodate greater lava/basalt/coke loads, by a factor of 4. Stay tuned, I'll have a working model of a very large furnace (3 tons+ of lava an hour) up and running by November. As always thanks for taking time to look at the progress.

                      First test shot of a lava air cannon for a potential NASA grant proof-of-concept. The shot size is about 50 cubic inches/800 cubic centimeters of melted basalt; shot facilitated by roughly 100 psi compressed air. Very crude, yet effective. Stay tuned it'll get bigger and better.
