  1. 1. Wave Energy Converters : An experimental approach to onshore testing, deployments and offshore monitoring

    Author : Liselotte Ulvgård; Mats Leijon; Jonny Hylander; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wave power; ocean energy; linear generator; measurements; sensors; point absorber; offshore; PTO; force; Engineering Science with specialization in Science of Electricity; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektricitetslära;

    Abstract : The wave energy converter (WEC) concept developed at Uppsala University consists of a point absorbing buoy, directly connected to a permanent magnet linear generator. Since 2006, over a dozen full scale WECs have been deployed at the Lysekil Research Site, on the west coast of Sweden. READ MORE

  3. 3. Application of the SASW-technique in geotechnical in-situ testing

    Author : Mats Svensson; Institutioner vid LTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; teknisk geologi; Hydrogeologi; Spectral Analysis of Surface Waves; shear modulus; SASW; multichannel; inversion; Gmax; teknisk geografi; Environmental technology; pollution control; Miljöteknik; kontroll av utsläpp; geographical and geological engineering; Hydrogeology; Civil engineering; hydraulic engineering; offshore technology; soil mechanics; Väg- och vattenbyggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : With the main aim to test the applicability of the surface wave seismic technique Spectral Analysis of Surface Waves (SASW), used for determination of the shear stiffness (shear modulus - Gmax), four areas of applications have been studied. The four areas have been sites with natural geological conditions, sites where non destructive testing is necessary, pavement testing and multichannel testing. READ MORE

  4. 4. Wave Energy Conversion : Linear Synchronous Permanent Magnet Generator

    Author : Oskar Danielsson; Mats Leijon; Göran Engdahl; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Engineering physics; Finite element method; linear synchronous generator; longitudinal end effect; permanent magnet; point absorber; offshore testing; wave power; Teknisk fysik;

    Abstract : This thesis studies the electric aspects of a linear synchronous permanent magnet generator. The generator is designed for use in a wave energy converter, which determines the fundamental requirements of the generator. The electromagnetic properties of the generator are investigated with a finite element based simulation tool. READ MORE

  5. 5. A numerical model to simulate short-term beach and dune evolution

    Author : Jie Zhang; Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Numerical model; cross-shore transport; beach profile change; dune erosion; offshore mound; storms;

    Abstract : Sediment transport in the cross-shore (CS) and associated changes in the beach profile, especially during storms, have been topics of widespread concern. Since storms are often accompanied by high water levels and large waves, large quantities of sand from the beach and the dune are typically transported offshore, leading to severe beach and dune erosion, which threatens the integrity of buildings and infrastructure near the coast.
