    • Design of composite tidal turbine blades 

      Grogan, David M.; Leen, Sean B.; Kennedy, Ciaran; Ó Brádaigh, Conchúr M. (2013-02-24)
      Tidal turbine blades are subjected to significant thrust and torsional loadings due to the high density ofthe seawater in which they operate. These thrust loadings lead to high bending moments at the bladeroot, which can ...
    • An experimental study of a flow-accelerating hydrokinetic device 

      Mannion, Brian; McCormack, Vincent; Kennedy, Ciaran; Leen, Sean B.; Nash, Stephen (SAGE Publications, 2018-05-01)
      Tidal energy researchers and developers use experimental testing of scaled devices as a method of evaluating device performance. Much of the focus to date has been on horizontal axis turbines. This study is focused on a ...
