Wind turbine project ideas?
I have to make a wind turbine for an engineering project. It has to lift stacks of coins in 50 coin intervals. 50 coins the first time, 100 the second time, 150 the third time, and so on. It Has to lift the load .5 meters above the ground or platform that it is on. The wind for the power will be generated by two Industrial fans.
There is a catch to this though. The entire project must be made from things that are found around the house. We can not use materials that have been purchased.
I have a few ideas but i just wanted to see if anyone else had any.
Thanks for all the help so far. But im looking for some more ideas on how to use this to actually lift the coins. Any ideas with that?
Answer by Drewfuss
the simplest wind turbine to make from junk is the savonius rotor. it's basically made from barrels cut in half lengthwise for the cups.
