  • Why UHMWPE is so AWEsome

    The carbon backbone of the UHMWPE molcule is a zig-zag line of carbon atoms just like a path on a graphene lattice, so its the closest thing to carbon

    How can the ladder possibly "widen" as its spars are compressed? Its only ever as wide as its spars. Yes, the overall twisted ladder will constantly shorten

    Lets also recall DaveL's white-paper to crack hydrogen on a global scale by towing water-turbine ships with kites, which is a more advanced platform than

Group Description

International rapid AWES development (RAD) of airborne wind energy conversion systems (AWES).

Kite energy systems work to fulfill tasks or provide energy for others to use.

Advance the science and art
of tethered craft (anchors may be fixed, mobile, moving, or even flying)
for capturing and utilizing
fluid stream kinetic energy.

Analogues in air and water form one art party. Domina Jalbert made it clear to the world that any sky-kite system has its obvious analogue in water, and thus obvious to those skilled in the arts.

Top-level AWES aspects: Designing, Validating, Inspecting, Assuring Safety, Assuring Quality, Siting, Communicating, Insuring, Certifying, Operating & Maintaining, Piloting, Observing, Controlling, Advertising, Selling, Adjusting, Decommissioning.

We have many leaders discussing and sharing technology.
"a leading company in airborne wind energy" will be applied to those sharing in this forum.

Un-tethered airborne wind power plants are included. RATs on powered aircraft and unpowered aircraft are embraced in this forum. IFOs are welcome.

A simple kite is already a wind turbine performing works. But this forum aims to advance kite systems for accomplishing small and humble tasks and huge global heavy industrial tasks. The tasks may include such as lifting, pulling, radiating light, radiating electricity, transporting goods and people. Thousands of tasks await solutions by kite systems (AWES).

AWES Forum Policy:
Unfriendly, profane, harassing, or abusive manners are not allowed on the AWES forum; but sincere technical disagreements, with supporting evidence, and posed in mild language, are welcome.
