      Alvarado Carbajo, Dídac Adrià (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2012)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Restricted access - author's decision
      Tidal power is a growing industry in the world but particularly in the United Kingdom. Many companies have started the race to achieve a cheap and efficient tidal turbine design. For instance, Tidal Energy Limited has opted ...
    • Numerical Analysis of a Supersonic Turbine for Novel Propulsion Systems 

      Martínez Moralo, Oscar (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2012)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Restricted access - author's decision
      Current state-of-the-art supersonic turbines have been conceived to work under supersonic ow conditions where the inlet axial velocity is subsonic. For the present case, an extreme ow situation has been studied, where ...
    • Study of a Tesla turbine efficiency and performance 

      Fontarnau Lynd, Anna (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya / Universität Stuttgart, 2011)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Restricted access - author's decision
      Since its invention, the Tesla turbine has had little industrial application and relatively few investigations have been carried out in order to achieve a machine which can be very useful in some fields where other ...
