2008-09 Undergraduate Research: Wind-Turbine Design Project

Robert Erickson, under the supervision of Drs. Greg Mowry and John Abraham has carried out simulations which are being used to design small wind turbines that are able to be used in small, urban environments, such as on rooftops.  His work has been sponsored by Horizontal Winds.  The results are currently in press with the journal Open Mechanical Engineering and will also be presented at the Clean Technology Conference and Expo this May, in Houston Texas.
