Personal profile

Research Statement

Dr Carwyn Frost (HI 7) is an ECR recently appointed to the post of lecturer in Civil Engineering at QUB. He has led feasibility studies for near-shore marine renewables in Northern Ireland, and supports the Strangford Lough tidal test site. He is experienced in CFD modelling of tidal turbines and experimental validation at both laboratory and field scale. He led the industrially focused InvestNI funded TTT3 (£500,000) and TTT3.5 (£150,000) projects. He is a member of the committee of the IEC, developing the Technical Specification for Marine Energy (TC114, 62600-202).
