##### Squeezing Twisted Savonius Wind Turbine Model

This model demonstrates that the surface of the Twisted Savonius wind turbine's blades are geometrically squeezed as the twist angle is increased and the parametric position is moved up and down the turbine. Learn more about the squeeze. Learn more about the Geometry of the Twisted Savonius Wind Turbine project.*Note: the calculated radius in this particular example cannot be accurate because the model is a 2d geometric approximation of the real 3d shape. Accurate calculations are made from the top view model, which is visually more difficult to comprehend. The calculation here still varies accurately as the twist angle is changed and the position is moved up and down the turbine, but it also varies as the rotation is changed (which shouldn't happen).*

##### Epic Circle Trace

A line passes intersects a circle at two points. Each point is located proportionally around the circle in terms of a given function of**t**. The path of the line’s movement is traced as

**t**varies. Try changing/animating

**t**. Can you figure out how each point is constrained, in terms of

**t**? Look at the gx source file for the answer.

*Hint: look at the period of the movement, and how it changes as*

**t**changes.
