The Forceanalysis of the Vertical Axis Wind Turbine Arms
The strain on the arms of the H-VAWT is complex. The article makes analysis on the moment of inertia and maximum stress of the H-VAWT arms, and calculation is made on an equilateral triangle and a rhombus which has the same perimeter with the former. The article provides a method for analyzing the designation of H-VAWT.
