G2.5. The Magnocraft's compartments

In introductory part of subsection G2 is explained, that in this monograph a name “compartmentis assigned to a part of the Magnocraft’s interior, which is separated from the remaining parts of the Magnocraft by hermetic walls. This hermetic wall must be capable to secure air in a given compartment, even if the remaining part of the vehicle becomes decompressed. Magnocraft’s “compartments” must be clearly distinguished from Magnocraft’s “spaces”. After all, a “spaceis such a volume of the Magnocraft, in which a given environmental conditions are prevailing, which are different from conditions prevailing in other spaces. Examples of spaces include “propulsion spaces” and “living space”, described in subsection G2.4. In a single “living space” many “compartments” may be distinguished. Compartments must also be clearly distinguished from “cabins”. A “cabinis a small part of a given compartment, which is separated from it and from other cabins by thin partition walls. This subsection explains several principles connected with the subdivision of the Magnocraft’s interior into subsequent “compartments”.
As this stems from my design analysis to-date, in Magnocraft of each type the interior must be utilised in a different manner. This utilisation is going to be so characteristic, that by its attributes and appearance in future people will be even able to determine exactly in which type of the Magnocraft a given person is present. For examples of such determination of a type of Magnocraft by its compartments, see item #8 in subsection G4.8, and also descriptions from subsection P6.1. Here is the basic information that so-far I managed to deduce about the compartments and utilisation of space in the Magnocraft’s interior.
#1. The number of compartments. Each type of the Magnocraft is subdivided with hermetic walls into a number of separate compartments that is characteristic for this type of vehicle. The number "p" of these compartments is equal to the type coefficient "K" of a given vehcile, i.e. p = K. For example, a Magnocraft type K3, i.e. the one for which K=3, has p = 3 compartments distinguished in the interior. Each one of these p=3 compartments is separated from others by hermetic walls. These compartments include: (1) the "pilots deck " also called "captain bridge" which occupies the entire living space, (2) the "central propulsion space " which occupies the entire propulsion space from the centre of the vehicle and contains the main propulsor, and also a rubbish dump space, air converter, etc., and (3) storage area which occupies the "side propulsion space" and which hosts side propulsors. In turn a Magnocraft type K7 contains p = 7 such compartments. For explanations of their purpose see Figure P30.
In turn a Magnocraft type K10 has p = 10 compartments. Hermetic separation of these compartments mutually from each other causes, that if for some reasons one of them ceases to be suitable for living, still crew may shift to another compartment and survive in there. Thus e.g. the escape of air from one compartment in the result of hitting it by meteorite, still allows the crew to escape into another compartment.
#2. Gates. Subsequent compartments of Magnocraft are mutually separated from each other with hermetic walls. Through these hermetic walls equally hermetic gates must lead that shut automatically. In case of troubles, these gates are capable to cut automatically a given compartment from the remaining spaces of the vehicle thus maintaining in it air necessary for breathing. A number "b" of gates in each Magnocraft is equal to the type coefficient "K" for this vehicle, i.e. b = K. In each Magnocraft there is the same number of gates between subsequent compartments, as the number of these compartments and as the type of a given vehicle, i.e. b = p = K (for details see Figures G39 and P30). To facilitate possible evacuation and to decrease a chance of getting lost, all gates in a given Magnocraft are positioning in a line towards each other – means each gate faces other gates. Furthermore, these gates must be distinguished from hatches “w”, which there is also w = K, through which in the Magnocraft of the first generation are used to enter the decks of these vehicles. Notice however, that the Magnocraft of the second and third generations do not have hatches, as entering their decks is carried out through telekinetic tractor beams that shift loads directly through the shell of the vehicles’ hulk.
#3. Levels and stories. Magnocraft of larger types are subdivided with the use of horizontal hermetic walls into a number of separate levels and decks. By a separate "level" we understand a situation when a ceiling of one compartment is simultaneously a floor of another compartment that lies directly above it, and vice versa. In turn a separate "stories" appears if floors of two compartments that are adjusted to each other are not positioned at exactly the same horizontal level. In the result Magnocraft types K3, K4, and K5 have only one level for all compartments of their living space. But in Magnocraft of type K5 two decks with vertically shifted floors are distinguished in this single level. In Magnocraft types K6 and K7 two levels are distinguished – see Figure P30. In Magnocraft type K8 there are three levels. In turn Magnocraft types K9 and K10 have four levels. It is also worth to remember that above the ceiling of the highest level of the living space there is still one more level that is not occupied for living. It is taken by the main propulsion space and by the main propulsor. Because this level is unsuitable for occupation by crew members because of it is constantly swept by magnetic field from the main propulsor, it is utilised as a technical area (e.g. for a rubbish dump, for the air recalculation space, for compressors room, etc.) – see compartment number "7" in Figure P30 and also compartment "C" in Figure G39.
#4. Bridges between levels (elevator ramps). These belong to the category of cabins, not to the category of compartments or spaces. Elevator ramps are used for communication between subsequent levels of the vehicle – see "W" in Figure G39 and "E" in Figure P30. These ramps in their design are slightly similar to a spiral staircase with a square cross section, or more strictly to a spiral ramp for wheelchairs, because they are deprived of stairs. Stairs are replaced in them by a slanted floor which for the increase of friction is covered by a kind of mesh. An example of just such a spiral ramp that replaces stairs can be seen in the oldest church of the world, namely in Aya Sophia from Istanbul, Turkey. It should be noticed here, that because of the frequent flights of the Magnocraft in both a standing and a hanging position, floor of these elevator ramps in some cases is used as a ceiling, while the ceiling is used as a floor.
#5. Designation of subsequent compartments. Each compartment of a discoidal Magnocraft has a shape of a ring that encircles around the entire spaceship and that is symmetrical to the central axis "Z" of the vehicle. It always has the strictly defined designation. With this designation are tightly connected functions performed by subsequent compartments and cabins – if any cabins are distinguished in a given compartment.
Here is the list of compartments of the Magnocraft, that are distinguished in subsequent types of this space vehicle. This list should be red starting from the symbol "" and finishing on the symbol of the type of a given Magnocraft, e.g. on the symbol "K7". Note that each type of the Magnocraft contains the number of compartments that is equal to "K" factor of a given type of vehicle. Thus K3 vehicles have 3 compartments, K4 vehicles - 4 compartments, etc. All compartments and chambers listed between these two symbols are present on a considered type of Magnocraft, e.g. for the Magnocraft type K7 these are going to be compartments: C, B, P, H, F, E, A, and the ramp W (for a better understanding of this subdivision of vehicles into compartments see also Figures G39 and P30):

     (1) = Central propulsion space "C". It contains the main propulsor, and also a rubbish dump space, etc.
     (2) = Side propulsion space "B". In larger vehicles it hosts gallery of side propulsors, corridor, & storage space.
     (3) = Pilots deck "P" (or "captain bridge"). It may include the navigators' room, communication room, etc.
     (4) = Specialisation hall "H". It contains laboratory of the spaceship 's specialisation,

research equipment, etc.

     (5') = The storage area "F". It contains fridges, food supply and drinks, bottles with compressed air, etc.
     (5") = Main elevator ramp "W". It does not constitute a separate compartment, but it links two levels,
     (6) = Machine room "E". This is a cylindrical space surrounding the central cylinder with
the main propulsor.

     (7) = Living quarters "A". They contain cabins of crew members, kitchen, dining room, gymnastic hall, etc.
     (8) = Recreation centre "R". It contains a garden, a demonstration chamber with TRI

2nd generation, etc.

     (9') = Hangar deck "L" that stores Magnocraft of smaller types.
     (9") = Side elevator ramp "T". It links two levels of the vehicle.

     (10) = Workshops "D". They include repairing workshops, production facility, tool storage, etc.
     All the above spaces are linked together via several hermetic gates "G", located one

opposite to others, and able to automatically self-close in case of a rapid decompression in cosmic space.
Notice that for subsequent types of the Magnocraft, their suites of compartments are so designed that each larger type of these vehicles are to contain all kinds of compartments that are also present in all smaller types of Magnocraft. In addition to this, such a larger type is also going to have one additional compartment, which was introduced to it. Of course, in Magnocraft smaller from it, into which this compartment is not introduced yet, the function of it is also fulfilled. Only that it is done in a temporary manner – as it is performed by some special equipment contained in one of compartments that already exist in such a smaller vehicle. For example, as this appears from the above list, the Magnocraft type K6 includes “living quarters” which are included only from this type upwards. Thus Magnocraft of all types larger than K6 are to also have these “living quarters”. But Magnocraft type K5 and smaller have the ”pilot deck” and “specialization hall”, the special equipment of which also allows to fulfill the function of such “living quarters”. After all, this special equipment of these vehicles must also include comfortable pilot sits, and tables for operations.
