I am going to cautiously disagree with what you are saying. I have
looked over the websites you pointed me to, and I see a couple of issues.
1 -- The tssp website says that it is trying to model real life coils
in software, and trying to predict them as close as possible.
Somewhere in there it says the inductance of a resonant coil cannot
be predicted by lumped element formulas, as the current is not
uniform along the coil
2 -- The GeoTC library clearly states that it calculates the
inductance from Grover's tables. I have looked at the actual source
code, and this is indeed the case. Inductance calculations are done
by sepparating a coil into individual turns, and then looking up the
inductance in grover's tables for that turn. As stated elsewhere,
inductance of a resonant coil cannot be predicted on the basis of tables.
3 -- GeoTC does not seem to be a full implementation of tssp, rather
a library built on some of the concepts of tssp (their words, not
mine); therefore, just because tssp may be accurate, does not mean
GeoTC is accurate. As a matter of fact, since GeoTC calculates top
load capacitance, and coil inductance, and derives resonant frequency
from that, it seems it is indeed considering the TC as a lumped
element circuit, which was disproven by J. & K. Corum.
4 -- one final note: without any sparks comming out the top load, how
can the current be uniform? for a current to exist, there has to be,
excuse me for repeating myself, an actual CURRENT! since the top load
only sees a voltage potential, there can be no current at the top. If
your software is telling you that the current is evenly distributed,
there is something wrong with the software...

has i ever said that my values are for the case with a streamers
present? not at all.

impossible. read this first:
"Examples of voltage and current distribution profiles for Tesla
Example 8: Typical coil with toroid
The transimpedance is 43K ohms, much higher than the 29K predicted by
a cosine current profile, and almost equal to the _uniform current_
value of 45K ohms."
you may read this if you would be interested in future:
btw - here are charts for my coil:
i think that "peaks" are present only at inefficient coil, with a
funny small toroid, or even without one :-)))
