Vortex Bladeless: A New Way to Collect Energy from Wind

Presentation by Jose Viyeira, R&D Project Engineer at Vortex Bladeless.

Vortex Bladeless is developing a technology that extracts energy from the wind thank to Vortex Shedding and Vortex Induced Vibrations (VIV). Among others, the main fields of investigation we are working on are CFD, FEA and Electromagnetic Interactions. Within our technology, these fields are all connected, so one affects the others. For that, Altair’s suite software is helping us not only to understand the phenomena. It is so important that we consider Altair as a part of the process of maturation of the technology.
