Wind Turbine Simulators – Wind Turbine Design

Study of twist angle along the length of the blade and velocity contours at different angles of attack.

A wind turbine is a device that converts kinetic energy from the wind into mechanical energy. Understanding the wind turbine organization and the energy transformation has long been challenging for many engineering students. As a new approach in teaching wind energy, an interactive computer program was developed to provide students with hands-on experience in visualizing and manipulating wind turbine.

Sinter Cooler

Sinter Cooler Geometry

The sinter cooler is used to reduce the hot sinter produced. The cooling efficiency of the sinter cooler is significant to the sinter quality. In addition, reducing cooling time by optimizing the operation condition can save energy. Advanced in-house simulation code has been previously developed to investigate the cooling processor of the sinter cooler. However, there is no user-friendly interface existed for researchers to specify the input condition, geometry, and monitor the simulation process. Therefore, current effort has been focused on the development of the preprocessor for simulation code.

Reality University Simulation

Screen capture of the High School level

Using the interactive art form of the videogame as an educational tool and a vessel for training has become an integral part of society today. Utilizing the Unity engine, our team was tasked with creating an educational game that would be entertaining for students that had attended previous conferences as well as informative in regards to the process of attending college and the corresponding journey into the workforce.

Project Lead the Way

HAST students work on designing models for a virtual representation of Hammond

Project Lead the Way (PLTW) is a national program which provides rigorous and innovative Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education programs used in middle and high schools across the U.S. The Hammond Academy of Science and Technology (HAST) is collaborating with CIVS to teach students advanced simulation and visualization tools to help solve real world as part of the PLTW program.
