  1. 1. Numerical Modelling and Statistical Analysis of Ocean Wave Energy Converters and Wave Climates

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Wei Li; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Wave power; Wave energy converter; Gravity-based foundation; Power absorption; Wave spectrum; Linear generator; Frequency domain; Wave climate; Ocean wave modelling; Mixed-distribution model; Bivariate distribution; Archimedean copula;

    Abstract : Ocean wave energy is considered to be one of the important potential renewable energy resources for sustainable development. Various wave energy converter technologies have been proposed to harvest the energy from ocean waves. This thesis is based on the linear generator wave energy converter developed at Uppsala University. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Baltic Sea Wave Field Impacts on the Sediment and Biogeochemistry

    University dissertation from Tema vatten i natur och samhälle

    Author : Anette Jönsson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hydraulic engineering; HYPAS; Wave modelling; Significant wave height; Wave energy; Vattenteknik; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture Water engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur Vattenteknik;

    Abstract : The wave field in the Baltic Sea has been modelled for a two-year period with the spectral wave model HYPAS. There is a large seasonal variation in the field and a minor annual one, both reflect the wind variation in the area. Since the Baltic Sea is fetch limited, the dominant wind direction is important for the maximum wave heights. READ MORE

  3. 3. Wind-wave interaction effects on offshore wind energy

    University dissertation from Department of Energy Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Ali Al Sam; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2016-11]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wind-wave; swell; atmospheric boundary layer; marine atmospheric boundary layer; atmospheric turbulence; Large-eddy simulation; actuator line; wind sea; offshore technology; wind energy; wind turbine; aerodynamic;

    Abstract : This thesis is devoted to the investigation of the impacts of fast moving ocean surface waves on the aerodynamics of offshore wind turbines. The impacts of non-locally generated waves (swell) on the Marine Atmospheric BoundaryLayer (MABL) and thereby on offshore wind turbine aerodynamics are studied numerically by using Large Eddy Simulations and the Actuator Line Method.

  4. 4. Fatigue Assessment and Extreme Response Prediction of Ship Structures

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Wengang Mao; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Fatigue assessment; extreme response; rainflow; narrow-band approximation; Laplace Moving Average model; transformed Gaussian; zero up-crossing response frequency; significant wave height; safety index; upcrossing spectrum; long term cumulative distribution function; ship routing.;

    Abstract : In this thesis, a simplified narrow-band approximation model is proposed to estimate fatigue damage of ship structures, and an efficient method for extreme response predictions is also developed using upcrossing spectrums of ship responses.The proposed fatigue model includes two main parameters, significant stress range hs and zero upcrossing frequency fz.

  5. 5. On flexible random field models for spatial statistics: Spatial mixture models and deformed SPDE models

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Anders Hildeman; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Spatial statistics; Significant wave height; Spatial mixture model; Stochastic partial differential equation; Log-Gaussian Cox process; Point process; Gaussian random field; Substitute-CT;

    Abstract : Spatial random fields are one of the key concepts in statistical analysis of spatial data. The random field explains the spatial dependency and serves the purpose of regularizing interpolation of measured values or to act as an explanatory model. READ MORE
