Scholarship Description: The goal of this project is to deploy and test the performance and sustainability of a pilot-scale vertical axis tidal turbine in the Severn Estuary near Sully Island. The hydrodynamic characteristics of the deployment site are to be investigated prior to deployment through a bathymetric survey and point velocity measurements at a few selected locations. The field measurements will be complemented by numerical simulations of the flow around the Island. The obtained field data will be used for the validation of the CFD simulations, and the simulation results will allow the determination of the ideal location for turbine deployment.

Number of award(s): One scholarship is offered.

Duration of award(s): Scholarship is offered for three years.

What does it cover? The award will cover tuition fees at the Home/EU fee rate and will provide a stipend at the UK Research Council rate (£13,726 in 2013/14) plus an enhancement of at least £1,000 per annum.
