This paper presents the research currently being carried out on the potential contribution of hydrofoils to generate additional down-force on seabed fastenings in energetic tidal flows.

Firstly, the dynamic lift of a hydrofoil subjected to vertical velocity perturbations was analyzed numerically, showing the reduced response to the fluctuation when unsteady aerodynamic theories are introduced. Secondly, an experimental set-up was developed for the deterministic generation of two-dimension velocity perturbations in a recirculating water flume. This will allow the combined effect of vertical and longitudinal velocity fluctuations on the lift force to be measured.
