Welcome to WindFluX

Cover of the Wind Energy journal Volume 20, Issue 11, November 2017 (link)

The main goal of the research in the Wind, Fluids, and eXperiments (WindFLuX) Lab is to improve our understanding and ability to predict the interaction between turbulent flows and the environment, with emphasis on power harvesting through optimal devices, and wind energy. Our investigations are typically performed through a synergistic interaction between field experiments with our mobile wind LiDAR station, wind tunnel experiments, numerical and theoretical modeling.
