How to use rotation in a sentence?

  1. Hiroshi Watanabe:

    Unless we have external shocks such as a resurgence of U.S.-China trade tensions or a war in the Middle East, it is hard to see the U.S. economy falling apart, there could be a great rotation to stocks from bonds. Emerging markets are likely to benefit from investors' bullish mood too.

  2. Guy Houlsby:

    The original Darrieus turbine has blades that are parallel to the axis of rotation, and that means that the loads in the blades are carried entirely by bending of the blades. That results in very high stresses, the re-design that we've done changes the blades so that they form this triangulated structure, and that's a very stiff and very strong structural form. And that means that the loads in the blades are principally carried by axial forces and that means that the stresses are much lower.

  3. Alexander Grushko:

  5. Craig Fehr:
