Linear and Angular Measurements

A technique of combined experimental and theoretical determination of the functional dependence of the steady-state angular spin rate of a windwheel on the pitch angle of the blades is proposed. The technique is studied with the use of a mock-up of a vertical-axis windwheel.

Keywords
