A Gurney flap is an engineered flow control accessory. Combining engineered flaps with the other structures inspired by seagull wings improves lift and reduces stalling in wind energy […]

Sandia National Laboratories are showing new design for 650 foot wind turbine blades in an effort to bring offshore 50-MW wind turbines to the United States and the world. Sandia National Laboratories’ research on the extreme-scale Segmented Ultralight Morphing Rotor (SUMR) is funded by the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy program. The […]
