Project

Experimental and numerical study of the hydrodynamical behaviour and structural response of wave energy convertors base don wave overtopping (3F013707)

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.
