A model study of the St. Cloud Hydropower dam

May 4, 2010
A model study of the St. Cloud Hydropower dam conducted at the University of Minnesota's St. Anthony Falls Laboratory (SAFL). Designing intake channels to hydropower plans requires careful investigation to avoid problematic intake vortices and guarantee efficiency of flow to the turbines.

Recently, the SAFL was awarded a National Science Foundation grant to establish a new Science and Technology Center, the National Center for Earth Surface Dynamics. The new center will seek to identify and quantify the major physical, biological and chemical processes that shape the Earth's surface.
