Abstract

In an attempt to accurately predict the von Kármán vortex shedding and associated forces of a cylindrical structure subject to tidal flow, a numerical environment is proposed and tested using two prominent Finite Volume Navier-Stokes (FVNS) solvers. The methodology has been developed through extensive literary exploration and iterative testing with the aim of generating an accessible means of analysis and to compare the solvers by closely matching the setup environments. A second study on cross-flow tidal turbine performance is also ongoing; although this is not discussed here, presentation of preliminary results at the workshop is intended.
