Abstract

Describes progress in the last 12 months which has established bag designs and fabrication techniques, giving greater confidence in the life and cost of these components. A quarter scale bag is under construction. Extensive tank testing has also established life time bending moment and mooring load envelopes, enabling hull and mooring design to proceed. A computer simulation programme has been used to check tank model results and to establish turbine and generator operating conditions. This has allowed generation and transmission component design to proceed, and suggests a high operating efficiency can be maintained with a simple control regime. Simple solutions in minor areas such as valve design and damage stability control add to the picture of steady progress in establishing the Lancaster Flexible Bag 's feasibility.
