Frequency domain modelling of a coupled system of floating structure and mooring Lines: An application to a wave energy converter
Floating structures for single offshore renewable energy devices, i.e. wave energy converters, tend to be significantly smaller than those of the traditional offshore industry and the interaction between floater motions ...
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 ...
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 ...
