Inquiry on effects surface roughness on Tidal Turbines.

  1. May 28, 2013 #1
    Hi, I'm an intern in an energy research company and I'm asking if anyone has any links or channels to papers or studies conducted on the effects of barnacle growth or other causes of surface roughness on tidal turbines?

    I apologize in advance if I have posted under the wrong part of physics forums. Many thanks for any help provided :)

    If you google "effect of surface roughness on airfoils" you'll find some interesting papers ;)
