4th Oxford Tidal Energy Workshop (OTE2015)

Dates: 23rd and 24th March, 2015

Venue: Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford

We are pleased to announce that the 4th Oxford Tidal Energy Workshop, OTE2015, will be held in Oxford on the 23rd and 24th of March, 2015. OTE2015 builds on three successful workshops to provide opportunities of scientists, engineers, and researchers to discuss technical issues in tidal stream power generation. Topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Device-scale problems (hydrodynamics, design, fluid-structure interactions, etc)
  • Array-scale problems (wake interaction, array optimisation, etc)
  • Basin-scale problems (resource assessment, environmental impact, etc)
  • Novel experimental, computational, and theoretical approaches for tidal energy research
