Cook Inlet Modeling Working Group: Hydrokinetic energy generation effects on sedimentation

Date: Wed. Sept 21st from 10-11am.
Topic: Preliminary results of UAA’s modeling efforts to estimate the impact of hydrokinetic devices on velocity, flow, and sediment transport.
Presenter: Prof. Tom Ravens of the UAA School of Engineering
Call-in number:             1-866-779-5968       PIN 1694

Dr. Ravens’ team has developed a methodology for representing hydrokinetic devices using an bottom roughness, and have tested it on rivers.  Now they’re working to apply the technique in Cook Inlet — simulating deployments of hydrokinetic devices by Fire Island where the Ocean Renewable Power Company is working.  Join the webinar to learn more.
