Our academic and research staff are undertaking experimental, analytical and theroetical research on wind energy infrastructure and technology. The work ranges from the loading effects of wind turbines on different soil classifications to the reduction of vibration effects on the life cycle of wind turbine blades. Our wind energy team is made up of researchers with expertise in energy, geotechnical and structural design.
