Physical model testing for offshore renewables
General details of the subject
- Face-to-face degree course
Description and contextualization of the subject
This course addresses laboratory-based testing and field trials for assessment of performance and survivability, instrumentation technologies, data acquisition and analysis of Uncertainty and experiment design, in the context of a highly time- and cost-limited campaigns. The course will include lectures, hands-on demonstrations and mini-projects, taking full advantage of the range of internationally leading facilities available within the consortium.
The objectives are to provide students with:
1. knowledge and understanding of the different types of laboratories which may be used for offshore renewables testing.
2. understanding on the different scaling laws which may apply from lab-scale or intermediate-scale field-trials to full scale
3 knowledge on the basic approaches to data analysis and be able to estimate the levels of uncertainty of their measurements.

Lesson 1 Lab testing: device testing in wave tanks, towing tanks, flumes, and wind tunnels; similarity, extrapolation to full scale, and particular scaling challenges for lab testing of marine renewable devices; material and structural testing of components; experiment design. Guidelines and standards.
Lesson 2 Field Trials: environmental monitoring, instrumentation and data transfer challenges, site selection and choice of scale.
Lesson 3 Instrumentation: measurement of fluid velocity, water surface elevation, pressure, force, displacement, velocity and acceleration, non-intrusive measurement techniques including PIV, LDA, and motion capture, and ultrasonics; measures of performance linearity and repeatability, calibration.
Lesson 4 Data acquisition and analysis: data sampling, filtering, processing, statistical analysis; sources of uncertainty, bias and precision, accumulation of uncertainty.
Literature and guidelines will be provided to register students on Myplace.
