UCL - 0.5m Laboratory Tests

September 2012

A comparative study of curved and flat paddle concepts, each 0.5m wide, at UCL

Tests undertaken earlier in the year have been repeated to investigate a range of alternative design concepts with paddles that are now 0.5m wide (1/5th the width of the tank).

The step-change in performance observed previously was repeated and enhanced by extending the depth (front to back) of the curved paddles.

"Curved CCell paddle delivers 2-3x more power than an equivalent flat paddle of the same size."
