STUDIES OF BIOFOULING IN OTEC PLANTS

An experiment program leading to an understanding of the effects of biofouling on the heat transfer characteristics of tubes in an ocean environment is presented in detail. The test apparatus is described, thermodynamic equations are given, initial laboratory tests and preliminary data from in-situ operational testing are discussed.
