Studies into the technical feasibility of the Transverse Horizontal Axis Water Turbine

Abstract:

The Transverse Horizontal Axis Water Turbine (THAWT) has been proposed as a tidal device which can be easily scaled and requires fewer foundations, bearings seals and generators than a more conventional axial-flow device. The THAWT device is a horizontally deployed variant of the Darrieus cross-flow turbine, in which the blades can be oriented into a truss configuration to produce long, stiff multi-bay rotors.

This thesis establishes and combines a set of numerical models, which pre...
