Wind Turbine at CWRU
In November 2010, a 100kW wind turbine was erected on the Case Western Reserve University campus. Our CWRU student section (thanks K.J.!) provided this link to a time lapse movie showing the building of the wind turbine. You may have to cut and paste the link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tr169zvYOsM
Batteries at Painesville Power
Yesterday, Patrick Cleary and I visited the Painesville Municipal Power plant. This plant has been in operation since 1908 and looks every bit of that. However, there is also on the site a new building being erected which will contain a vanadium redox flow battery with a capacity of 1.08 MW.
We hope to sponsor a tour of the facility sometime this coming fall.
A change to the Cleveland ASME Web Site
The ASME is changing the way they interface with their members. They’re creating a more modern and social web presence.
This web site will no longer be supported. The new site will be accessible from inside
your ASME profile.
To get there go to this web site:
You’ll then need to key in your e-
Once you are inside the ASME web site you’ll need to go to the Cleveland Section Page. You’ll find that here: https://preview.community.asme.org/cleveland_section/default.aspx
You can also get there by going to the District B page and then navigating to the Cleveland Section.
Here’s the path from within the ASME Site:
Home>Knowledge & Community Operating Board>Global Committees Operating Board>District B>Cleveland
Once you’re on the page it has familiar social media tools for blogging and contacting others inside the ASME community. We’ll be posting messages about upcoming events and yes, even the newsletter will be posted as a PDF.
