Unravelling the unsteady fluid dynamics in wind and hydrokinetic energy systems

3:30pm | 1115 Wisconsin Energy Institute

In this Sustainable Energy Seminar, Jennifer Franck, Assistant Professor of Engineering Physics, will discuss research into unsteady fluid flows using computational tools. By gaining a better understanding of the flow physics, the goal is to harness these fundamental principles to help improve the performance of renewable energy systems such as wind or wave turbines.
