Canyon Hydro Archimedes Screw Turbine FOA Project

Lead Lab

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) has partnered with Canyon Hydro to optimize costs, performance, and biological effects of a traditional Archimedes screw. PNNL will provide consultation on the use of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software for the design and evaluation of new Archimedes Screw Turbine Designs developed by Canyon Hydro as part of their FOA project. In addition, PNNL will consult with Canyon Hydro on methods and draft test plans to evaluate the fish passage performance of the new turbines.
