Journal Article
Hardisty, J., & Jennings, R. (2017). The parameterisation of turbulence in the marine environment. Journal of Marine Engineering and Technology, 16(3), 114-120. https://doi.org/10.1080/20464177.2016.1260892

There are many problems in the fields of flow modelling around structures and tidal stream energy yield analysis which require a thorough understanding of the turbulent and time-averaged flow speeds in marine environments. In this paper we examine th... Read More

Experiments with point absorbers for wave energy conversion (2012)
Journal Article
Hardisty, J. (2012). Experiments with point absorbers for wave energy conversion. Journal of Marine Engineering and Technology, 11(1), (51 - 62). ISSN 2046-4177

Although many existing and proposed wave energy devices operate as point absorbers, for which the overall efficiency depends upon the frequency and magnitude of the buoy's displacement, there is little experimental data presently available with which... Read More

Modelling and testing the vertical axis, impulse rotor tidal power pontoon (2008)
Journal Article
Hardisty, J. (2008). Modelling and testing the vertical axis, impulse rotor tidal power pontoon. Proceedings of the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science, and Technology. Part A, Journal of marine engineering and technology, (15 - 23). ISSN 1476-1548

The specification of a new tidal power pontoon is described. The device consists of a 500kW asynchronous generator connected through gearbox and drive shaft to a twelve bladed, vertical axis rotor 4.00m x 4.00m mounted at the impact point of a jet in... Read More
