Popular Science Website Features UMaine Wind Research

PopSci, the website of Popular Science magazine, has published a feature article about University of Maine wind-power propellers being designed, built and tested at the Advanced Structures and Composites Center. The article notes that UMaine’s 37,000-square foot Offshore Wind Laboratory is one of two facilities in the U.S. that stress-test full-size blades, and the only lab where wind turbines blades are built and broken under the same roof. UMaine engineer Larry Parent, senior research and development program manager, and Habib Dagher, composites center director, were quoted for the story.
