The representation of tidal-stream energy devices in computational ocean models requires careful consideration of local flow processes at sub-grid scales. A modular software system is developed, based on a physically-consistent pure-mathematical framework, in which additional resolution is obtained using splines. The methods are applicable to ocean modelling systems in general.
