Virtual fish help turbine design

Voith Hydro is using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis and visualizations to design turbines that are friendlier to fish. In conjunction with the Georgia Institute of Technology, Voith has developed virtual fish that swim in a computer-generated animated environment. CEI`s EnSight visualization software allows researchers to watch virtual fish pass through a hydraulic turbine and pinpoint what forces could harm fish.
