For a wind application, the location of the maximum chord length in a double-tapered configurations may be in the vicinity of roughly 30% to 50% of the span (measured from the mount end). As well, in the vicinity of the mount end of the foil (i.e. The changes to the shape of the foil along its span strengthen the foil in the vicinity of the mount end and provide interior volume to accommodate bearings etc. In one aspect the present invention is a turbine, for rotating responsive to a fluid flowing relative to the turbine wherein in use the turbine is oriented with its axis of rotation transverse to the fluid flow, the turbine comprising at least two foils extending along the axis of rotation, wherein: each foil has a mount end at one end of its span and a non-mount end at the other end of its span; each foil has a twist about the axis of rotation of no less than about 180° along its span; one side of the foil section of each foil is generally concave and the other side of the foil section of the foil has an outer convex section, an intermediate concave section and an inner convex section; and the length of the chord of the foil in the vicinity of the mount end is greater than the length of the chord of the foil in the vicinity of the non-mount end, whereby the profile of the turbine is generally tapered.

Figure 40 is a foil-section view of a section at 30° of twist from the foil-section of figure 39 and in the vicinity of the non-mount end. Figure 40 is a foil-section view of an eighth section 1116 at 30° of twist from the seventh section 1114 and in the vicinity of the non- mount end. The flexible nature of the mount also means that, as compared to a rigidly mounted turbine, the water turbine 900 is less susceptible to damage from floating or partially submerged items (e.g.

Figure 28 shows a collapsible, helical, ram-air VAWT 1000. As shown in Figure 28, and with respect to some features in greater detail in Figures 29 and 30, the ram-air VAWT 1000 comprises a bottom plate 1002 mounted on a column 1004 and a top plate 1006. The ram-air foil 1008 comprises a plurality of battens 1010, with each batten 1010 slidably mounted to a shaft 1012 at a hole passing through the batten 1010. Relative rotational movement of the battens 1010 about the shaft 1012 is impeded; preferably, the shaft 1012 is splined and the holes in the battens 1010 are configured to mate with the splines.

Alternatively, a perpendicular-axis turbine mounted at the front of a vehicle will both divert air over the vehicle due to the Magnus effect and drive a rotation driven device (such as a generator or refrigeration compressor). This enhancement of laminar flow results in a broadening of the range of angles of attack for which laminar flow pertains over each section of a foil, thus producing greater lift.

Smith, discloses a two-level vertical-axis wind turbine, in which the top level has essentially Darrieus-type foils. Alternatively, if the installation location did not permit such self orientation of the barge, flow sensors, computer controllers and mechanical devices, likely powered by the turbine, could be used to alter the cant of the turbine relative to the barge. Figure 23 is a side elevation view showing an array of four solid-foil, helical, double-taper water turbines suspended in flowing water and connected to a tethered floating vessel via flexible drive cables.
Water turbines of the present invention may conveniently be made from polypropylene-fibre-reinforced concrete. Transverse-axis turbines of the present invention fall generally into the class of the so-called Savonius-type transverse-axis turbines. Vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs) generally comprise a central shaft arranged vertically with respect to the ground and rotatably supporting a plurality of blades or vanes arrayed around the shaft and roughly perpendicular to the wind flow. Figure 12 shows a two-foil single-curve, improved-Savonius-type foil-section 400 (and a portion of the foil section of the other foil) of an embodiment of the present invention. Figure 12 is a foil-section view of a two-foil VAWT embodiment of the present invention, having a single-curve, improved-Savonius-type, foil section, the drawing indicating offset dimensions for the foil section, the offsets taken from a chord/radius line.
Figure 11 is a foil-section view of a two-foil VAWT embodiment of the present invention, having a single-curve foil section, the drawing indicating offset dimensions for the foil section, the offsets taken from a chord/radius line. Dolor lumbar derecho y pierna . Unlike the double-curved foil sections, in the two-foil single-curve VAWT foil-section 300, the surface of the foil furthest from the chord/radius line does not have a concave section. In the case of wind turbines having their axis of rotation transverse to the flow of air, the axis of rotation is most conveniently (in terms of secure mounting and ability to accommodate different wind directions) oriented generally vertically, and such wind turbines are typically referred to as vertical axis wind turbines (or VAWTs) to differentiate them from horizontal axis wind turbines in which in use the axis of rotation is generally parallel to the wind direction.
The sections above the section at which the lift area is established have greater rotational motive force than they would have without the migration of the lift area, resulting in a reasonably constant torque throughout each full rotation of a thus tapered foil. 1102), the ratio of the chord length/radius of the foil section to the width of the foil section is less than this ratio in the other sections. Further, the maximum chord length may not be at the mount end but rather may be located at a position along the span between the mount end and non-mount end, wherein, moving along the span from the mount end towards the non-mount end, the chord length increases up to the location of maximum chord length and then decreases towards the non-mount end.
The helical form, the foil section configurations described herein; the tapered configuration and the quasi-conical base, are all understood to contribute to the formation and persistence of a low- pressure lift area that migrates from the mount end toward the non-mount end on the surface of the foil as the turbine rotates. It has been found that this adjustment is not measurably detrimental to the performance of the turbine and may contribute to the formation and persistence of the desirable low-pressure lift area on the surface of the foil. Although, general developments in wind turbine technology may have some application to water turbine technology, given the differences in fluid density and operational environments, there has not been significant overlap in recent wind and water turbine developments. For strength and some manufacturing convenience, fibreglass foils may have conventional foam cores.
