Vertical Axis Wind Turbines (VAWTs) are becoming increasingly popular for wind power extraction due to their simpler design, lower manufacturing and maintenance costs. The omni-directionality of these power generating machines make them more suitable... Read More about Start-up dynamics of vertical axis wind turbines: a review..

Natural convection induced by the absorption of solar radiation: a review. (2017)
Journal Article
AMBER, I. and O'DONOVAN, T.S. 2018. Natural convection induced by the absorption of solar radiation: a review. Renewable and sustainable energy reviews [online], 82(Part 3), pages 3526-3545. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.rser.2017.10.106

Natural convection primarily driven by the absorption of thermal energy known as penetrative or thermo-convection is a topic that generates attention due to its importance in various physical systems. A very common example of where this process can b... Read More about Natural convection induced by the absorption of solar radiation: a review..
