Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

Abstract

This article presents an introduction and overview of a modelling project “TeraWatt: Large scale interactive coupled 3D modelling for wave and tidal energy resource and environmental impact”. The project was funded by the SUstainable PowER GENeration (SUPERGEN) “Marine Hub”. SUPERGEN (http://www.rcuk.ac.uk/research/xrcprogrammes/energy/energyresearch/supergen) is an initiative of the Research Councils UK (RCUK) Energy Programme, led by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). It is focused on supporting resilient and sustainable generation, supply, transmission and storage of the UK's energy. The Marine Challenge addresses the UK Centre for Marine Energy Research's (UKCMER) mission to support the wave and tidal energy sector beyond their current state of development.
