this Russian paper Art Wagner found is getting more interesting in terms of exotic jet propulsion, though in a cavity it might be a kind of saucer engine. Too soon to tell - I have not finished the paper but it smells good.

Yeah, it looks interesting. Remember the alleged “Bell” machine in Nick Cook’s “Hunt for the Zero Point”.

Gas Dynamic Theory of Local Quasigravity

Vyacheslav Volov
(Submitted on 11 May 2012)
In the present work there was found a class of noninertial frames of reference, which satisfy Einstein "equivalency" principle more than the known noninertial frames - these are strongly swirling gaseous flows. Field intensity and potential in the mentioned frames of reference are similar to the corresponding values of natural gravity fields, but have the opposite sign. Scalar curvature of this space is negative and proportional to absolute gas temperature. There was obtained a new solution of Einstein equation which refers to type I in Petrov's classification for cylindrical symmetrical swirling ideal gas with variable angular velocity and nonzero pressure. The equation of state has a more complicated form than the known equations of state in theory of the vacuum.
