Researchers from the department of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering Researchers have secured funding to use ARCHER, the national HPC facility. The project, led by Dr Qing Xaio is entitled “A Study of Bio-inspired Three-dimensional Passively Deformed Flexible Blade for Wind/Tidal Turbines”. It is an extension of an existing EPSRC project focusing on marine renewable energy device performance enhancement using bio-inspired concepts.
