'Green Energy' Wind Turbines
As energy prices rise and concerns about the environment increase, more people are turning to alternative "green" power sources such as wind turbines. Supported by a National Science Foundation grant, a team led by Johns Hopkins researchers is using smoke, laser light, model airplane propellers and a campus wind tunnel to unravel the airflow mysteries surrounding these mammoth machines.
In this short video, shot and edited by Ruthie Aslan '03, you can see full-size and model wind turbines in operation and hear Johns Hopkins researchers describe their experiments.
