Computer models show clear advantages in new types of wind turbines

Researchers have modelled the fluid dynamics of multi-rotor wind turbines, and how they interact in wind farms. The research demonstrates a clear advantage for a turbine model with four rotors.

"If we want a truly sustainable built environment, we need to look at the bigger picture. We cannot focus on energy renovation alone," says Aliakbar Kamari, who is researching in tectonic building design at the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University. Photo: Aliakbar Kamari.

New knowledge about old plastics

There is a huge number of different plastic types. This means it is no easy matter to get the rate of plastics recycling to rise. At the Department of Engineering, daily tests on plastics will make it easier for industry to identify the specific type of plastic and produce recycled plastic products in the right quality.
