• About us (11/26/2020) -
  • Internship at COER (11/26/2020) - COER are currently involved in an EU Horizon 2020 project (LiftWEC), which involves the development of a novel wave energy converter whose primary coupling with the waves is through the generation of hydrodynamic lift on a rotating hydrofoil. COER’s work package deals specifically with control strategy development. The internship on offer would explore some interesting […]
  • Promoting Engineering (11/5/2020) - COER are committed to encouraging young people to consider engineering and other STEM subjects for further study. Have a look at our video to find out more about where a career in engineering can lead….
  • COER Seminar Series 2020 (10/22/2020) - Please join us next Thursday from 11am to 12pm for an MS Teams seminar presented by Hugh Murphy and Jack Hyland entitled: Open access publisher agreements in Maynooth University.  Where we are and where we’re going. We are looking forward to a very interesting and timely presentation, especially given increasing emphasis on open access, the […]
  • LiftWEC, an EU Horizon 2020 Programme. (9/1/2020) - COER are one of the consortium members of LiftWEC,  a European research project funded by the Horizon 2020 Programme. The project will develop a novel type of Wave Energy Converter, called the LiftWEC, which uses hydrodynamic lift forces to extract wave energy using a rotating hydrofoil. The first LiftWEC newsletter is out.  To find out […]
  • New Paper! (7/14/2020) - New paper - Non-linear modelling of a Vibro-impact Wave Energy Converter Our new paper proposes a non-linear vibro-impact mechanism, integrated inside a semi-submerged cylindrical buoy to form a self-contained and self-referenced vibro-impact wave energy converter (VIWEC), for performance enhancement. by Bingyong Guo and John Ringwood. You can find it here
