Since my last blog post we have further separated our research portions into more specific details to appeal to Dr. Demuren's research paper and our research paper for this course. For Dr. Demuren he wants us to focus more on the offshore wind farms (More)

What are your technical strengths (e.g., skills, option courses taken, etc.) I have finished all my core engineering courses (thermo II, heat & mass transfer, etc.) so I think I have a lot of engineering knowledge to apply to this project. My (More)
What was your contribution to your project this semester?  To support this, provide and explanation AND links to 2-3 blog posts or provide up to three pieces of evidence (e.g., drawings, equations, etc.) that explain your contribution.  (More)

Since the last post, progress has continued as usual. We have come closer to finalizing the style of wave energy converter (WEC) we would like to move forward with. A proposed rotating mass WEC was looked into. Much of the week was spent researching (More)

We met with Dr. Demuren and talked about the research we have completed. Also I found several research documents on EngineeringVillage regarding the tower design of wind turbines. More documents were found on the feasibility of having wind turbines (More)

Summarize the work that you have completed this week, do not summarize the work of the entire group (a picture and hours worked since your last post are still required). I have done much research on wave energy converters on their working princip (More)
