The following provides a brief summary of the contents of this website.
The Overview section provides an to this Project, as well as a brief review of the current state of the art of , including the CoRMaT device that this Project is particularly concerned with. The Overview section also explores the nature of and provides a to this Project.
The Buoy section provides an to the Buoy option that was investigated as part of this Project. The relationship between buoyancy size and (between the seabed and the mooring line) is explored, as well as the static and dynamic . The various that were considered are explained and evaluated. The impact of the vertical on the Buoy mooring system design is also explained. Finally, the derivation of the coefficient, which was used in design calculations, is described.
The Hydrofoil section provides an to the Hydrofoil option that was investigated as part of this Project. The Analysis that was used to calculate lift and drag forces for various angles of attack is presented, as well as the Analysis, which was used to assist with structural design of the Hydrofoil.
The Mooring section provides an to the main considerations and challenges of mooring system design. The differences between the main of mooring system are discussed, as well as the various mooring and anchors (including and ) that are available. The impact of the various mooring design options on and packing densities is considered. A concept design for an device is also proposed, in order to avoid mooring lines and electrical cables becoming tangled.
The Environmental section examines the type and extent of that may be expected, and the effect of this on the Hydrofoil in particular. The potential effects of on marine life are also explored.
The Economic section explains how the annual from the turbine was calculated, and therefore how the resulting was calculated, for various mooring options. This section is concluded with a comparison of the , focusing on the financial implications of these two options.
The More Info section introduces the members of MORE, and summarises the used in this website.
