WIRL: Wind Research - Dr. Eric Matlis' Laboratory

Hessert Wind Tunnel

What’s It Really Like (WIRL)? is a series of small discussion groups of undergraduate students and people working in the field of energy and sustainability. The following opportunity is available during Energy Week. Space is limited, so register early.

This summer, a group of undergraduates and Prof. Eric Matlis used a wind tunnel to see if the wind from trucks on the interstate would generate enough energy to activate vertical wind turbines on the side of the road. Meet with undergraduate researcher Breanna Belz, graduate researcher Alexander Arndt, and Prof. Matlis and ask questions about how you can get involved in wind energy research at Notre Dame.
