Animation of the computed flow field around two oscillating airfoils. Velocity vectors and vortex structures are shown. A simulation like this one takes about 3 days to complete on a modern dual-core computer.


Here is an overview of our experimental setup in operation during a test in Summer 2009.

The following video (in French) summarizes the effort related to the ongoing development of the oscillating-foils hydrokinetic turbine. It has been created for a promotional screen located at the Mechanical Engineering Department of Laval University. 

The following video shows an artist view of a hydrokinetic turbine farm. Credits: Dominic Gagné, Frédérick Neegan Trudel.

The following video presents the advantages of the HAO technology. Credits: Simon Leclair, Francis Beauregard, Karl Harrisson, Julie Ledoux.
