Welcome to Wind Engineering Section
at Kyushu University research institute for
applied mechanics (RIAM). Our research interests include, problems of fluid dynamics
related to wind environments such as airflow over complex terrain and urban canopy,
effect of wind forces on buildings and structures, and wind energy as clean and renewable
energy. As a part of the research on renewable energy source, we have developed a new wind
turbine technology called "Wind Lens"
. Development of the wind-lens turbine has
recently entered new stage which consists of two main components. They are augmentation of
wind lens application to mid to large size wind turbine and utilization of the wind-lens
turbines as a core part of future off-shore energy farm.
