Technology-Agnostic Assessment of Wave Energy System Capabilities
Developing new wave energy technologies is risky, costly and time-consuming. The large diversity of concepts, components and evaluation criteria creates a vast design space of potentially feasible solutions. This paper ...
Review of systems engineering (Se) methods and their application to wave energy technology development
The design of effective and economically viable wave energy devices involves complex decision‐making about the product based on conceptual design information, including stakeholder requirements, functions, components and ...
New Simplified Algorithm for the Multiple Rotating Frame Approach in Computational Fluid Dynamics
This paper deals with rotating effects simulation of steady flows in turbomachinery. To take into account the rotating nature of the flow, the frozen rotor approach is one of the widely used approaches. This technique, ...
Identification of defects originated during the filling of cast pieces through particles modelling
In casting processes, strong recirculation zones may trap air, gases and strip particles of sand off the mold affecting seriously the quality of the cast pieces. Especially during the filling of molten pieces with large ...
Efficient Rotating Frame Simulation in Turbomachinery
This paper deals with the simulation of steady flows in tur- bomachinery. Two approaches are proposed, the first one is the classical multiple-rotating frame method (MRF) by multi- zone approach where the different zones ...
