Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (both open and closed cycle)
Coleman, Technical Director Pump Applications
May, 1977 -
Developed Designs for Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (both open and closed cycle systems) based on optimization programs.whereby power system was designed to develop power from temperature difference of surface water and that at a depth of half a mile in tropical oceans.
Floating Nuclear Plant
Coleman as team leader
May, 1972 -
An analysis of rotor distortions resulting from seasonal temperature variations on a 400ft square barge acting as base for a 1200 MW nuclear power plant moored within a seawall off the coast of NJ for Public Service Gas & Electric Co. of NJ. Rotor of tandem coupled turbines and generator and exciter is approx. 200 ft long with 11 different bearings experiences a seasonal mid span deflection in excess of I inch. Rotor stresses and bearing load variations are evaluated.
