Featured article: Structural Analysis of Biologically Inspired Small Wind Turbine Blades

mapleWhile vertical axis wind turbines are not reaching the same level of efficiency of horizontal axis wind turbines, there are significant benefits to researching improvements. One of the main benefits is to make use of vertical axis wind turbines in urban settings. In order to improve the efficiency of the vertical axis wind turbine, this paper provides structural analysis details of the design of a vertical axis wind turbine blades that mimic the geometry of maple and triplaris samaras seeds.
