Engineering Team Uses Armstrong Fund for Science to Develop New Multi-rotor Offshore Wind Turbine

In May of 2012, a team of wind-power specialists from the College of Engineering was awarded a $30,000 grant from the Armstrong Fund for Science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, which the engineers are now using to help design, analyze, and optimize a new, multi-rotor, offshore wind turbine. For six years now, the Armstrong Fund has annually issued grants of $30,000 apiece over two years to a pair of teams to encourage transformative research that introduces new ways of thinking about pressing scientific or technical challenges.
