Background and activities

My PhD consists of investigating the dynamic loads on the blades of an horizontal axis tidal turbine. The varying loads are mainly due to wave-current interaction. The case of runaway is also an important point of my research work.Three methods are compared and evaluated: CFD, analytical tool written with MATLAB, and experiments.
