The e-Drive project team launched the Edinburgh Wave Systems Simulation Toolbox during a workshop led by Dr Richard Crozier at the International Conference on Ocean Energy in Cherbourg, France on June 14th.
As part of its wide-ranging and multi-disciplinary research portfolio in renewable energy, IES operates the FloWave Ocean Energy Research Facility, a £12M, state-of-the-art, circular wave and current basin. FloWave is a globally unique test-bed for marine energy devices and for fundamental studies of multi-directional wave and wave current interactions. The successful candidate will have a track record of excellent research in one or more of the following topics: non-linear wave hydrodynamics, wave-current interaction, ocean wave/current statistics, marine energy devices, ship manoeuvrability, floating platforms, offshore fluid-structure interaction, and mooring dynamics. In due course, the successful candidate will undertake teaching duties in Mechanical Engineering.
The annual IMEchE Renewable Strategy Engineering Competition for 2016 is now open for submissions. This competition is open to students and graduate engineers of all ages - Undergraduate students (BEng, BSc, MEng), Postgraduates (MSc, MRes, PhD) and industry-based engineers.
