    This paper presents the "WaterMet2" model for long-term assessment of urban water system (UWS) performance which will be used for strategic planning of the integrated UWS. WaterMet2 quantifies the principal water-related ...
  • Wave conditions inducing extreme mooring loads on a dynamically responding moored structure 

    Harnois, Violette; Johanning, Lars; Thies, Philipp R. (EWTEC, 2013-09-02)
    The aim of this paper is to determine which wave conditions are inducing extreme mooring loads on a highly dynamically responding moored structure. Currently, the design of a mooring system for a typical oil and gas offshore ...
  • Wave diffraction from a truncated cylinder with an upper porous sidewall and an inner column 

    Ning, D-Z; Zhao, X-L; Teng, B; Johanning, L (Elsevier, 2016-12-21)
    An analytical model based on linear potential theory is proposed to predict the three-dimensional wave diffraction from a truncated cylinder with an upper porous sidewall and an inner column in the finite water depth. The ...
  • Wave resource variability: Impacts on wave power supply over regional to international scales 

    Smith, HCM; Fairley, I; Robertson, B; Abusara, M; Masters, I (Elsevier, 2017-09-14)
    The intermittent, irregular and variable nature of the wave energy resource has implications for the supply of wave-generated electricity into the grid; intermittency of renewable power may lead to frequency and voltage ...
