#### Wind Turbines

Wind turbine technology is now mature, and further interesting development are
expected in the future. The aerodynamic theory can be partially derived by Glauert,
but many improvements have been formulated to deal with the peculiar aspects of
these machines. As for the helicopter, wind turbine books usually contain chapters
on related technological problems.

**Wind Turbine Technology**, ASME Press, 1994.

**Review**: the book is multi-disciplinary item with several aspects
of wind energy systems. Among
other things, there are chapters on aerodynamics and acoustics.

**Review**: this is a book almost entirely devoted to aerodynamics
and structural interaction, with detailed description of loads and
moments. There are sections devoted to airfoil theory, rotational
effects, dynamic stall, rotor optimization, and computational
fluid dynamics.

#### Other Stuff

Other material somewhat related to rotary aerodynamics.

- Gostelow JP.
**Cascade Aerodynamics**, Pergamon Press, 1984.

**Review**: It is a fundamental book on cascades. The author discusses the
basic equations, the important 2D models, incompressible and compressible
flow characteristics, and special topics, such as cooling and tandem cascades.
Good bibliography.
