  • The applicability of aerodynamic models to tidal turbines. 

    Turner, Naomi (Robert Gordon University School of Engineering, 2012-04)
    For the tidal current power industry to progress, simple models for predicting the performance of tidal current turbines are needed. Currently the aerodynamic models developed for wind turbines are typically used to predict ...
  • The application of low aspect ratio hydrofoils to the secure positioning of static equipment in tidal streams. 

    Owen, Alan (The Robert Gordon University School of Engineering, 2007-05)
    The costs of installing tidal energy technology are high, requiring expensive vessels to drill sockets in the sea bed or to handle gravity based structures of substantial mass, and this impacts on the commercial viability ...
  • The contribution of small-scale wind and photovoltaic renewable energy sources to the Scottish energy mix. 

    Fowler, Ailsa Mhairi (Robert Gordon University School of Engineering, 2011-04)
    Energy needs in the UK are currently met primarily through the use of finite resources, such as oil, coal and gas. The use of these fuels has led to an increase in greenhouse gas emissions. There is a need for a more ...
  • Indigenous capability building as an intervention strategy for sustainable enerby implementation in vulnerable societies. 

    Garniati, Leuserina (Robert Gordon University School of Engineering, 2014-10)
    Geospatial regions have different requirements for energy development due to variations in environmental, economic, social, and political constraints which influence their energy demand profiles and generation capacities. ...
  • Regenerating Aberdeen: a vision for a thriving and vibrant city centre. 

    Cockburn, Duncan; Deveci, Gokay; Donaldson, Bill; Gray, David; Harris, Paul; Laing, Richard Alexander; McClean, David; Martin, Andrew; Owen, Alan; Prondzynski, Ferdinand von (Robert Gordon University, 2013-03)
    COCKBURN, D., DEVECI, G., DONALDSON, B., GRAY, D., HARRIS, P., LAING, R., MCCLEAN, D., MARTIN, A., OWEN, A. and PRONDZYNSKI, F. V., 2013. Regenerating Aberdeen: a vision for a thriving and vibrant city centre. Aberdeen: Robert Gordon University.
    The aim of this discussion paper is to stimulate debate and prompt action regarding the future shape and purpose of Aberdeen’s city centre. This paper argues that investment in a thriving and dynamic city centre requires ...
  • Scale effects in testing of a monopile support structure submerged in tidal currents. 

    Okorie, Oghenevwori Patricia (Robert Gordon University School of Engineering, 2011-11)
    Climate change and energy security are key issues motivating the development of Tidal Current Energy (TCE) technology. Small scale model testing of TCE devices is a major challenge facing the technology due to turbulent ...
