This study has been performed to develop our knowledge about marine sources energy extraction. Water in the channel has been simulated in laboratory scale by means of FLUENT software. The turbine tidal flow is generated by a moving disk which applies a pressure decrement with energy dissipation. Free water surface is estimated by means of fluid volume in the model which changes freely. The numerical results illustrate that eddy sequence has been generated after the tidal flow of turbine and a flow acceleration is generated nearby, especially beneath the energy extraction devise. Free water surface drop due to energy extraction is considered in model results that seems a to improve the turbine eddy sequence.
Key words: Eddy sequence / porous media / VOF
