Sandia Signs Memorandum of Understanding with H2USA

Sandia recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with H2USA, a new public-private partnership launched by DOE to focus on advancing hydrogen infrastructure to support more transportation energy options for U.S. consumers, including fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs). The partnership brings together automakers, government agencies, gas suppliers, and the hydrogen and fuel-cell industries to coordinate [...]

Todd Griffith (in Sandia’s Water Power Technologies Dept.) was recently elected in the class of American Institute of Aeronautics & Astronautics (AIAA) Associate Fellows. AIAA Associate Fellows are “individuals who have accomplished or been in charge of important engineering or scientific work, or have done original work of outstanding merit, or have otherwise made outstanding [...]

Joint Sandia-DOE-HMRC Testing of a Floating Oscillating Water Column Wave Energy Converter Device

From September 8th–20th, Diana Bull (in Sandia’s Water Power Technologies Dept.) worked with the team from Ireland’s Hydraulics and Maritime Research Centre (HMRC) to complete testing of Reference Model 6, a backward-­bent duct buoy (BBDB) oscillating water column wave energy converter design. The team from HMRC included Tom Walsh, Brian Holmes, Florent Thiebaut, Neil O’Sullivan, [...]

Post-Processing and Analysis of Wake Measurements Around a Scaled Turbine

Sandia and the Univ. of Washington recently (jointly) reprocessed data from a UW wake-measurement campaign to include power-performance (Cp-TSR) and thrust (Ct-TSR) data for comparable velocity conditions obtained in the September 2012 field campaign. Their reanalysis shows that normalized wake-recovery metrics (i.e., velocity deficit vs turbine diameters downstream) suggest that wake recovery is independent of [...]

Sandia Brings Home a Record Five Regional Tech-Transfer Awards

Sandia won five regional awards from the Federal Laboratory Consortium (FLC) for its work to develop and commercialize innovative technologies. It was the most FLC regional awards Sandia has won at one time. The FLC’s Far West/Mid-Continent regions recognized the Labs’ SpinDX, Sandia Cooler, and Self-Assembled Multifunctional Optical Coatings (SAMOC) with “Outstanding and Notable Technology [...]
