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 ...
A comparison of numerical approaches for the design of mooring systems for wave energy converters
This paper analyses the numerical outcome of applying three different well-known mooring design approaches to a floating wave energy converter, moored by means of four catenary lines. The approaches include: a linearized ...
Numerical investigation of the rheological behavior of a dense particle suspension in a biviscous matrix using a lubrication dynamics method
This paper presents a numerical approach to predict the rheology of dense non-colloidal suspensions with a biviscous matrix. A biviscous matrix is characterized as a fluid with two shear rate dependent viscosities i.e. one ...
Small scale experimental validation of a numerical model of the HarshLab2.0 floating platform coupled with a non-linear lumped mass catenary mooring system
When focusing on mooring system numerical modelling, the efforts are focused on validating models that increase the accuracy and maintain the computation time under reasonable limits. In this paper an approach for modelling ...
Molecular Dynamics Test of the Stress-Thermal Rule in Polyethylene and Polystyrene Entangled Melts
Anisotropic thermal transport induced by deformation and the linear relation between the thermal conductivity and stress tensors, also known as the stress-thermal rule (STR), are tested via molecular dynamics simulations ...
