Survivability design of composite wave-energy converters

from SPE Plastics Research Online

In the context of the European Commission's Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) project Sustainable Economically Efficient Wave Energy Converter, our Mechanics of Materials and Structures research group designed a wave-energy device made of composite materials. Such devices consist of a floating structure that is very similar to an oil platform, with a number of floating point absorbers ('buoys') below the platform's deck. When a wave passes, these absorbers move up and down, and this vertical motion (relative to the damped motion of the platform) is converted into electricity. more
