  • Optimising Structural Loading and Power Production for Floating Wave Energy Converters 

    Ewart, LB; Thies, PR; Stratford, T; Barltrop, N (EWTEC, 2017-08-27)
    This paper investigates the design trade-off between power production and structural loading for Wave Energy Converters (WECs), based on tank test results for the Albatern 12S floating wave energy array. This work feeds ...
  • Steel-concrete connections for floating wave energy converters 

    Ewart, LB; Barltrop, N; Findlay, D; Thies, PR; Stratford, T (ASRANet, 2016-09-12)
    In order to make wave power technologies competitive within the overall energy market, there needs to be significant reductions in the levelised cost of energy (LCoE). One area for potential cost reduction is the use of ...
