Project: Experimental and numerical study of the hydrodynamical behaviour and structural response of wave energy convertors base don wave overtopping

project duration
01-OCT-07 – 30-SEP-11
abstract
In the search for renewable energy the possibilities of wave energy are being optimized. Fundamental research - experimental and numerical - is carried out on the hydrodynamical behaviour and structural response of wave energy convertors based on wave overtopping to optimize the overtopping and energy conversion of this type. Several locations (on/offshore), fixed and floating devices will be considered.
