Student Exchange – Dalhousie and Strathclyde University

Principal Investigator:

Dr. Darrel Doman, Dalhousie University

Start Date: January 2013

End Date: October 2015

The specific purpose of the research is to investigate and inform novel and cost-effective engineering solutions to extract and deliver energy from tidal flows. A key objective of the project is to participate in a student exchange as part of an international collaboration between Dalhousie University and the University of Strathclyde.  Student research will focus on introducing new tidal turbine blade designs.  Specifically, a system engineering approach will be developed to optimize blade shape as well as mechanical components that will advance the science, methodologies and applications regarding the way power is captured, converted and delivered.
