  • Re-creation of site-specific multi-directional waves with non-collinear current

    This paper was published in the Ocean Engineering journal in October 2017. It¬†was a joint piece of work with fellow IDCORE researcher at FloWave, Sam Draycott, building on our separate areas of research. In it, we demonstrate the capability of the FloWave facility to generate complex wave-current conditions, and also highlight the importance of considering […]

  • Overdue update on research progress

    I realise that I’m very much overdue an update on my research progress, having posted very little so far and nothing in the last year. Things are generally going well, although I still feel there is a lot to do and only a limited amount of time to do it in. This feeling of pressure […]

  • Taught component over, now onto the research

    Nearly six months ago, I finished the taught component of my EngD, and moved on to the research phase. My project is looking at physical scale modelling of offshore renewable energy devices in the new FloWave facility at the University of Edinburgh. This is claimed to be the world’s most advanced ocean simulator, a 25m […]
