Heartland Community College
The Wind Powering America success story, "DOE Wind Program Funds University of Wisconsin-Madison Wind Workforce Development Efforts," on September 25, 2012 discusses Heartland Community College's collaboration with the University of Wisconsin-Madison on instrumenting a wind turbine foundation and evaluating the dynamic forces and the foundation soil response to in-service wind action. The project will collect data to support design of more cost-effective foundations based on geotechnical and engineering analysis as well as provide an opportunity to engage undergraduate and graduate students with the construction, analysis, and operation of a renewable energy system. Experimental results and analyses will be incorporated into the continuing education short courses.
