The application of low aspect ratio hydrofoils to the secure positioning of static equipment in tidal streams. (2007)
Thesis
OWEN, A. 2007. The application of low aspect ratio hydrofoils to the secure positioning of static equipment in tidal streams. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

The costs of installing tidal energy technology are high, requiring expensive vessels to drill sockets in the sea bed or to handle gravity based structures of substantial mass, and this impacts on the commercial viability of any proposed marine renew...

Evaluation and testing of a novel photocatalytic reactor with model water pollutants. (2007)
Thesis
MOHAMMED, A.O. 2007. Evaluation and testing of a novel photocatalytic reactor with model water pollutants. Robert Gordon University, MRes thesis.

Semiconductor photocatalysis is a newly emerging technology for the elimination of harmful chemical compounds from air and water. It couples low-energy ultraviolet light with semiconductors acting as photocatalyst and thereby overcoming many of the d...
