Geometric, structural, and control co-design for undersea kites
Focusing on a marine hydrokinetic energy application, this paper presents a combined geometric, structural, and control co-design framework for optimizing the performance of energy-harvesting kites subject to structural constraints. While energy-harvesting kites can offer more tha...

Electrically Engaged Undulation (EEL) System
The Electrically Engaged UnduLation (EEL) system is a buoyancy-driven submersible device for powering oceanographic instruments. Physically, EEL is a slender body whose flexible spine is made up of energy units interconnected by uniaxial hinges. Each unit consists of a pair of pie...

StingRAY Structural Optimization Final Technical Report
The overall project objective is to materially decrease the leveled cost of energy (LCOE) of the Columbia Power (CPower) StingRAY utility-scale wave energy converter (WEC). This will be achieved by reducing structural material and manufacturing costs and increasing energy output. ...
