Richard Stevens studies turbulent flows in wind farms

Press/Media: Research


Richard Stevens is an assistant professor at the University of Twente and a member of the Physics of Fluids group led by professor Detlef Lohse. The group belongs to the Faculty of Science and Technology and is embedded in the Max Planck Center Twente and the MESA+ institute. “My research focuses on using state-of-the-art high-fidelity computer simulations to study turbulent flows such as Rayleigh-Bénard convection, i.e., the flow that is created in a layer of fluid that is heated from below and cooled from above. Another important research area is the study of the turbulent flows in extended wind farms.” Although his research mainly focuses on fundamental questions, Stevens is aware he and his colleagues can produce solutions that can be of vital importance to the future of our planet.
