Cross-flow turbines: integrated physical and numerical model studies towards improved array simulations


Martin Wosnik is an Associate Professor in Mechanical and Ocean Engineering and Associate Director of the Center for Ocean Renewable Energy at the University of New Hampshire. His research is in the area of fluid and thermal sciences with an emphasis on the fluid dynamics of renewable energy applications, including marine renewable energy conversion (tidal, wave, offshore wind), turbulent flows, high-speed hydrodynamics and cavitation. Dr. Wosnik has led several research deployments of tidal energy conversion devices and received a National Science Foundation CAREER award to study turbulent inflow and wakes relevant to marine hydrokinetic energy conversion.

Dr. Wosnik received a B.S. equivalent in Mechanical Engineering from the Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany, and a M.S. in Aerospace Engineering and a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, both from the University at Buffalo, The State University of New York.
