This thesis presents Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations of renewable turbines akin to those used for wind, hydro, and tidal applications. The
models developed took the form of actuator discs with the solution of incompressible Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes equations with the k-ω SST turbulence models. Simulations were initially conducted of a single turbine in water and air and then two axially aligned turbines to study the flow field interactions. These models were compared with previous theoretical, experimental and numerical data evident in the literature.. The actuator disc method was underpinned
