Abstract

In this paper, we investigate the mutual hydrodynamic interactions between two different kinds of devices, namely the OscillatingWave Surge Converter and the heaving point absorber. A three-dimensional mathematical model is developed based on linear potential flow theory where it is assumed that the effect of the evanescent modes of the disturbed potential due to one of the converters is negligible in the vicinity of the other, considering a reasonable distance of separation between the two devices. We then investigate the influence of location, oblique wave incidence and other parameters on the power absorption characteristics of the two bodies.
