Water May Be Scarce for New Power Plants in Asia

Ohio State University

Climate change and over-tapped waterways could leave developing parts of Asia without enough water to cool power plants in the near future, new research indicates. The study found that existing and planned power plants that burn coal for energy could be vulnerable. The work was published today in the journal Energy and Environment Science.

Supercomputer Simulations Help Optimize Floating Wind Farms

University of California San Diego

The Comet supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) and the Stampede2 supercomputer at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) were used to perform simulations that showed how floating turbine wakes are very similar those of fixed-bottom turbines, except that floating turbine wakes are deflected upward and have slightly stronger turbulence at the edge of their wakes.

Numerical Simulations Probe Mechanisms Behind Sand Dune Formation

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

After noticing how the construction of dams significantly alter the hydrodynamics of natural rivers and the resulting downstream riverbed evolution, researchers decided to apply numerical simulations to help determine what’s at play in the relationship of sediment motion and flow conditions.
