project studies some of the fundamentals of interaction between air
current and solid objects (propeller in this case). Similar techniques
are being used to design cars, airplanes, buildings and bridges.
The only difference is that in such applications the purpose is
minimizing the forces caused by air current, but in propeller design we
intend to maximize such forces.
research on the propeller
design factors that affect the energy production of wind generators.
You will make models and calculate the amount of energy in Jules while
changing one variable at a time. Each design factor is one variable for
your research. You may focus on one design variable or expand your
research to multiple variables or factors. Some of the factors
that you may study are: Size, Diameter, Pitch, blade area, blade angle,
