CFD Study of Wind Turbine Aerodynamics


   Department of Mechanical Engineering


About the Project

Wind turbine is the main technology that converts wind energy to electricity. The interaction between air flow and the turbine blade are critical to the structure integrity and noise generation of the turbine. The proposed research will focus on modeling and optimization of aerodynamic flow over a turbine blade in order to decrease the drag, and control noise generation and flow separation. Advanced computational fluid dynamics and structure analysis software will be employed with supplementary experimental investigations.
