2010 Student Research Conference:
23rd Annual Student Research Conference

Turbine Design Relating to Function and Efficiency
Kevin Barber
Dr. Matthew M. Beaky, Faculty Mentor

The search for clean and renewable energy is of growing interest in the world today. One form for creating alternative energy is the use of wind turbines. To produce energy the most effectively, it is necessary for these machines to be efficient. The efficiency of these turbines is dependent upon design and materials used. I will discuss wind turbines as well as other commonly known turbines by comparing their efficiencies and designs as well as limitations of both. These analyses will be relative to the turbines specific applications in industry, methods and effects of motion, and fluids used for motion such as air, steam and water.
