This paper describes the experiment conducted by the author to verify predictions of the controversial theory by R. Shawyer where a frustum-shaped RF resonant cavity (“EmDrive”) is expected to produce an asymmetrical anomalous force. A resonant cavity has been designed, simulated, and constructed, followed by a dynamic test on a pendulum platform while being energized with approximately 30W of RF power at the TE012 resonance mode. No force resulting from the application of RF energy has been detected within the resolution of the experimental setup. Spurious forces of thermal origin have been observed.
