... is gratefully acknowledged. If the mounting conditions are known, the finite element analysis is a powerful technique to determine mirror shape in different tracking angles and load cases. For evaluation of the impact of deformation on the optical performance, the results of the performed analyses...

... simulation that is presented in this paper. Replicating the experimental prototype, both 2D and 3D models of a three-bladed vertical axis wind turbine were generated. Full transient computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations using mesh deformation capability available in ansys-CFX were run from turbine...

... potential heat exchanger materials, polybutylene and nylon 6,6, is presented. Two failure mechanisms are considered: failure caused by material rupture (as indicated by the hydrostatic burst strength) and failure caused by excessive deformation (as indicated by the creep modulus). Hydrostatic burst strength...

... sections of the blade, and edgewise fatigue tests. Since some blades could be re-used after a first test, a total number of 42 blade tests has been carried out in three different testing laboratories. The blades showed large deformation, development of creep and stiffness reduction. After correction...
