Project Description: 

To develop a SUNTANS model to simulate the flow on a sub-mesoscale at a typical tidal stream energy site, that can be adopted for use as an industry/research tool.

Funding Source: 

Energy Technology Partnership, Heriot-Watt University, Marine Scotland Science

Location of Research: 

UK

Project Aims: 

The work is part of a wider effort to develop a computational ocean modelling tool capable of assessing the performance and hydrodynamic effects of proposed MRE installations at local and regional scales.

Project Progress: 

The project is currently on hold pending a future funding application.

There are no publications specific to this research, however, the researcher undertook an internship in 2014, for which a subsequent report “Implementation of Tidal Energy Extraction in a Finite Volume Coastal Ocean Model” was produced. This work is closely related to the PhD research. http://www.nerc.ac.uk/innovation/activities/infrastructure/offshore/internship-report-rob-hiley/
