Expanded methods paper details procedures of research for replicability.

Our research on the steady wind performance of a modified vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) has panned out conference and journal papers the past year. The opportunity to expand on the conference paper gave us an avenue to further detail the methods of the research. A book chapter 15 pages long will be published before the end of the year in the book series compilation Transactions on Engineering Technologies.

This methods paper chapter allows for the replicability of our research. In-depth, step-by-step procedures enable other researchers in the field to validate the research results and even take it a notch further by advancing the scope of the study to other VAWT designs and/or wind turbine systems. As we have noted in this paper, our use of baseline models benchmarked on reference data to validate and optimize the 3D models in the study permitted us to abandon experimentation altogether. Thus, while we do not propose foregoing actual experiments, the option to do so is espoused for researchers without the necessary equipment to conduct experiments, which is oftentimes a fund-related matter.

The International Association of Engineers (IAENG), in partnership with international publisher Springer, has been regularly compiling the expanded articles of selected researches presented in the former's annual conferences, namely the International Multiconference of Engineers and Computer Scientists, World Congress on Engineering and World Congress on Engineering and Computer Sciece, held annually in separate locations at different times of the year. This compilation has Dr. Sio-Iong Ao, and Professors Len Gelman and Haeng-Kon Kim as editors.

Details of the book are available at the Springer website here. Purchase options are also available on the page, with Google Books and Amazon most likely following suit.
