The main objectives of the module concerns firstly the understanding and calculation of wind and tidal turbines (aero-hydrodynamic design, performance and control of the rotor) and secondly the static and dynamic analysis of structures subjected to aero or hydrodynamics efforts (wind turbine blades or turbines, fairings, masts, anchors, barges floating wind etc ...).
A read thread, implemented over the life of the module allows aims at giving a general knowledge on new sources of energy that can be harnessed from the sea (offshore wind, tidal power, wave power, thermal, osmotic).
Course-TD in 3 parts that can be handled in parallel.
I. lecture / discussion "red thread" on marine renewable energy: 2H
II. Design and control of a wind or marine turbine: 16H
II.1 Betz Theory
II.2 Aerodynamics of airfoils
II.3 Rotor Design
II.4 aerodynamics and electrical control of the turbine
II.5 Careening device design
III. Hydro-aeroelasticity 18H
III.1 Flightaerodynamics and material resistance
III.2 Static aeroelasticity: profile divergence
III.3 dynamic aeroelasticity: floating of a standard profile
III.4 Unsteady aerodynamics of a cylinder wake
2 practical works (4H each planned)
4 (NP) numerical project are planned (4H each)
These projects highlight the need to take into account the aerodynamic constraints and static and dynamic resistance of structures to achieve a realistic design of rotor. They therefore allow to aware students that a strong link exists between two "objects" addressed by the module: the fluid and structure.
This module will be better understood by attending the two modules : "Advanced Modeling & durability of structures" and "Structure & materials" (not compulsory)
2 practical works, 4 numerical projects, examination (3h)
Practical works will begin in 2016
CC 50% + CT 50%
The exam is given in english only
The course exists in the following branches:
