    • Assessing aerodynamic performance in cycling using computational fluid dynamics 

      Mannion, Paul; Clifford, Eoghan; Blocken, Bert; Hajdukiewicz, Magdalena (NUI Galway, 2016-08-29)
      Aerodynamic resistance is one of the leading challenges to overcome in elite cycling. To optimize cycling aerodynamics, estimates must first be made by means of wind tunnel testing, computational fluid dynamics or track ...
    • Linear irregular wave generation in a numerical wave tank 

      Finnegan, William; Goggins, Jamie (Elsevier, 2015-07-09)
      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 ...
    • Numerical simulation of linear water waves and wave-structure interaction 

      Finnegan, William; Goggins, Jamie (2012)
      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 ...
