Abstract

This paper describes recent numerical modelling of a new wave energy converter WRASPA (wave-driven, resonant, arcuate action, surging power-absorber). The presented results are based on a range of . Also the experimental setup is outlined to illustrate the brief design principles of the device. A comparison of experimental and numerical results is performed as part of the validation process. The interaction of waves with WRASPA device has been simulated using a commercial code flow-3D as one of the primary objectives of this project. The ability of the method to compute a range of linear waves and coupled motion of the device is discussed. The code's ability to deal with wave propagation and interaction with rigid moving structures is evaluated.
