In this energy studies/aerodynamics/aerospace blog post, we discuss vertical-axis wind turbines (VAWTs), an underrated renewable energy solution that has recently drawn the interest of the research community.
In this fluid mechanics/transport phenomena/surface chemistry blog post, we discuss basic aspects of electroosmotic flow. Topics covered include electric double layer, Poisson-Boltzmann equation, and non-Newtonian EO flow.
In this aerodynamics/gas dynamics blog post, we discuss Prandtl-Meyer expansion waves. Three example problems are included to demonstrate how expansion fan and oblique shock calculations can be combined in the same situation.
