Technology Development

Sandia's Water Power Technologies program develops innovative technological solutions for  marine hydrokinetic (MHK) devices. Before MHK technologies can successfully compete in the energy market, developers must increase device power performance and reliability, thereby reducing the levelized cost of energy.  Through applied research and modeling efforts, we provide industry with tools to create better devices.  [...]

Hydrogen Behavior

The Turbulent Combustion Laboratory (TCL) provides a well-controlled, lab-scale environment for testing hydrogen release characteristics. Outfitted with several lasers, the TCL is uniquely suited to make high-fidelity, non-intrusive measurements of hydrogen release and combustion phenomena. The optical diagnostics employed in this laboratory include line-imaged Raman scattering, Raleigh Scattering, laser-induced fluorescence, particle imaging velocimetry, and Schlieren [...]
