Linear irregular wave generation in a numerical wave tank
In the design of any floating or fixed marine structure, it is vital to test models in order to understand the fluid/structure interaction involved. A relatively inexpensive method, compared to physical model testing, of ...
Environmental impacts of milk powder and butter manufactured in the Republic of Ireland
The abolition of the milk quota system that was in place in Europe was abolished in 2015, which instigated an immediate increase in milk production in many European countries. This increase "will aid in addressing the ...
Numerical modelling to aid in the structural health monitoring of wave energy converters
A vital aspect of ensuring the cost effectiveness of wave energy converters (WECs) is being able to monitor their performance remotely through structural health monitoring, as these devices are deployed in very harsh ...
Numerical simulation of linear water waves and wave-structure interaction
One of the main stages in the design of wave energy converters (WEC's) is the numerical modelling of a given converter. In this paper, the numerical simulation of both linear deep water waves and linear waves for the finite ...
Operational fatigue loading on tidal turbine blades using computational fluid dynamics
As the world moves to a greater reliance on renewable energy, a vital component will be the predictability and dependability of the energy source; tidal energy provides such a solution. Horizontal axis tidal turbines are ...
