Tesla's entire adult life was dedicated to the task of designing and improving devices for, as he put it, "the service of mankind." During Dr.
The successes that he achieved in Colorado led to Tesla's absolute conviction that wireless communication to any point on the globe was possible by the help of devices he had perfected, and set the stage for Tesla's next grand feat—establishment of an international wireless telecommunications and broadcasting facility that was to become known as Wardenclyffe.
The building was abandoned and Tesla's tower was eventually demolished during the early years of World War I. One interesting feature of Tesla's world system for global communications, had it gone into full operation, would have been its capacity to demonstrate on a limited scale the wireless transmission of electrical power.

 Tesla bust
A bust of the protean American inventor Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) is presented to the Cornell physics department, May 19, by John Wagner, right, a third-grade teacher from Ann Arbor, Mich. Accepting the bust is Saul Teukolsky, the Hans A. Bethe Professor of Physics and Astrophysics, and department chair.

 Nikola Tesla: Turbine ~ Construction plans ( by R. Hedin), "Tesla Turbomachinery" (Warren Rice)
Tesla is most widely recognized for his outstanding achievements in the fields of generation, transmission and utilization of electrical power.
The Tesla turbomachinery is distinguished by the fact that the rotor is composed of flat parallel corotating disks spaced along a shaft.
The disks are carried on throughbolts extending from a thicker masterdisk fastened to the shaft; thus the rotor is overhung.

 Inventor of the Week: Archive
Tesla was convinced that DC ("direct current") motors could be modified to operate without commutators---external switches that reverse the direction of the current in the rotor every 180 degrees to keep it spinning in one direction.
This made unit drives for machines possible, and allowed the more efficient AC power ("alternating current," where the rotor swings back and forth) to become the standard for most office and household appliances.
Tesla was also a pioneer in the early days of radio (invented by Guglielmo Marconi at the turn of the century).

 Tesla (unit) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The tesla (symbol T) is the SI derived unit of magnetic flux density (or magnetic induction).
The tesla, equal to one weber per square metre, was defined in 1960.

 Tesla
When he had the unit connected to a metal pillar in his building and when he had it running some time, there was resonance build up enough in the surrounding buildings to cause them to shake and nearly be destroyed.
They would have happened to, if he had not stopped the unit by hitting it with a large hammer nearby to stop the resonance.
I would suggest that the Tesla unit be mounted on rubber backing to prevent vibration transfer to surrounding areas.
