  1. 1. Mooring dynamics for wave energy applications

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Johannes Palm; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; hp adaptivity; Wave energy; Coupled simulations; CFD; Discontinuous Galerkin methods; OpenFOAM; Mooring dynamics; Snap loads; RANS;

    Abstract : This work aims to increase the modelling accuracy of two important problems for the wave energy industry. One concerns the mooring dynamics in the presence of snap loads (shock waves in cable tension). The other is related to nonlinear effects in the resonance region of moored wave energy converters (WECs). READ MORE

  2. 2. POSITION MOORING OF WAVE ENERGY CONVERTERS - An engineering study into the mooring of structures in a highly exposed shallow ocean regime, within the context of the economics of renewable energy conversion

  5. 5. Developing Computational Methods for Moored Floating Wave Energy Devices

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Johannes Palm; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Wave Power; RANS simulations; Discontinuous Galerkin; Mooring Dynamics;

    Abstract : Floating point absorbers are a common class of wave-power devices typically designed to move with large amplitude in energetic waves. This stands in sharp contrast to traditional marine design, where the wave-excited motions of the structure are preferably kept to a minimum. READ MORE
