Description

St. Anthony Falls Laboratory (SAFL) Tour

Presentation and Tour Synopsis (1.5 PDH):

NOTE: Please meet in the Auditorium

This month the MSP Post of SAME will get a chance to see the renovated St Anthony Falls Laboratory (SAFL). SAFL is an interdisciplinary fluid mechanics research and educational facility of the College of Science and Engineering at the University of Minnesota. Research at SAFL is focused at the intersection of fluid dynamics and effects in energy, environment and health. Experiments in the laboratory and field with advanced computational tools help researchers reach innovative, science-based solutions to real-world fluid-flow problems. SAFL partners with local, state and federal agencies; private consulting firms; businesses of many kinds; technical associations; and other educational institutions to expand knowledge and solve problems that reach across the country and all over the world.

Uniquely located in Minneapolis, on Hennepin Island in the Mississippi River, SAFL opened its doors in 1938. Over the years the lab has grown and evolved. The laboratory has been the headquarters and administrative home of the National Center for Earth-surface Dynamics (NCED), a National Science Foundation-sponsored research center. SAFL is also home to the Eolos Wind Energy Research Consortium, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. In 2010, a major renovation was funded by the National Science Foundation's American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Jeff Marr, Associate Director of Engineering and Facilities, will give a presentation featuring recent projects and activities at the lab. After the presentation, a tour through this historic facility will showcase the range of experimental facilities available for use by researchers and SAFL collaborators as well as current research projects. Reserve your spot now to see the renovated lab and witness research in action!
