A preventative maintenance process to enhance the operation and longevity of machinery.
Wind turbine design is the process of defining the form and specifications of a wind turbine to extract energy from the wind.
Adjusting the weight and weight distribution through 2 axes so that all blades are the same.
The aerodynamic surface that catches the wind.
The shape and dimensions of the blades of the wind turbine are determined by the aerodynamic performance required to efficiently extract energy from the wind, and by the strength required to resist the forces on the blade.
A wind tree contains "leaves" that act as mini wind-turbines to generate electricity.
In meteorology, wind speed, or wind flow speed, is a fundamental atmospheric quantity caused by air moving from high to low pressure, usually due to changes in temperature.
Wind shear (or windshear), sometimes referred to as wind gradient, is a difference in wind speed or direction over a relatively short distance in the atmosphere.
A turbulent and/or low-wind-speed region downwind of an object such as a buildings or trees.
A wind rose is a graphic tool used by meteorologists to give a succinct view of how wind speed and direction are typically distributed at a particular location.
A process to estimate the future energy production of a wind farm.
A wind profiler is a type of weather observing equipment that uses radar or sound waves (SODAR) to detect the wind speed and direction at various elevations above the ground.
The wind profile power law is a relationship between the wind speeds at one height, and those at another.
The wind power industry is involved with the design, manufacture, construction, and maintenance of wind turbines.
A wind power forecast corresponds to an estimate of the expected production of one or more wind turbines (referred to as a wind farm) in the near future.
A quantitative measure of wind energy available at any location.
Wind power or wind energy is the use of wind to provide mechanical power through wind turbines to turn electric generators for electrical power.
A structural trap is a type of geological trap that forms as a result of changes in the structure of the subsurface, due to tectonic, diapiric, gravitational and compactional processes.
Structural engineering is a sub-discipline of civil engineering in which structural engineers are trained to design the 'bones and muscles' that create the form and shape of man-made structures.
A stress–strain curve for a material gives the relationship between stress and strain.
