Anyone here knows about HELIX WIND TURBINES?
I'm currently studying as a Mechanical Engineer (B.Sc) student and am in my final year. Now, as my project of the final year I decided to look into the HELIX WIND TURBINES. I am hoping to build a working prototype of it and test it's performance. But I couldn't figure out how to calculate it's swept area. I've attached a picture of the basic design of the turbine. I'm hoping to build a small replica and measure it's various performance criteria. Can anyone help me please?
