Original HANNA Mono-Radial Turbine Post Access Report
Final report on a TEAMER study undertaken by Alden Research Laboratory for the Mono-radial turbine invented by John Clark Hanna DBA: Hanna Wave Energy Primary Drives. The study is a predictive numerical and CFD (computational fluid dynamics) report of the mentioned Hanna Mono-Radial Turbine. The device is an impulse-type mono-radial air turbine PTO for wave energy conversion. The turbine is self-rectified, meaning that it spins in one direction only while capturing the bi-directional air flows developed within an OWC (Oscillating Water Column) system.
