Dr. Lance Manuel earned his Ph.D. in structural engineering from Stanford University in 1993. He joined the College of Engineering in 1999. In support of his research related to the modeling of inflow turbulence and response of electricity-producing wind turbines, Manuel won a National Science Foundation CAREER award. Manuel and his research team study how random wind fluctuations, or turbulence, can influence loads on wind turbines. Manuel studies onshore and offshore turbine sites and uses computer simulations to determine how spatial patterns of turbulence in different regions and elevations affect turbine loads. The overall goal of his research is to establish design standards that will allow turbines to efficiently and economically produce electricity over their planned service lives.
