Students Develop a Way to Put Out Fire with Sound Waves

  1. Probably to your disliking, but that was filmed on the campus of George Mason in Fairfax at their main campus (Mercatus is located in Arlington). FWIW, Mason, exclusive of Mercatus, has a pretty decent economics department teaching undergrad.

  2. I wonder how scalable this is? There is a big difference in a small pan fire and a forest fire. Would the sound volume needed to put out a forest fire deafen everyone hearing creature in the vicinity? I don't know. I can't even speculate since I do not know the mathematics or physics of the principal.

  3. Scalable, you ask? You may want to look into HAARP ( High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program), and particularly HAARP RF.
