Cross Coupling between Device Level CFD and Oceanographic Models Applied to Multiple TISECs in Minas Passage

This project aimed to develop a link between oceanographic computer models and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) models in order to improve state-of-the-art modelling techniques used for resource assessments and tidal turbine siting for both single and multiple in-stream tidal energy devices.
