Project Details The design, manufacture and testing of a 1:10 scale model of the Manchester Bobber was completed at NaREC (Blyth, UK) during September 2005. Results and analysis from the tests included predictable scale up from 100th to 10th scale; development of a refined computational model; full scale platform design cost estimates and extrapolated modeling of the Bobber's electrical outputs using the refined computational model; and a predicted average output of a full scale Bobber.
