Wave Energy Project

Wave Energy Project

Wave Energy Project

RE: (Wave Energy Project) We’re currently trying to figure out the right approach for describing wave loads from the wave data so that we can give appropriate direction to one of our contractors in regards to structural analysis & design and I have a couple questions for the group.
-In regards to guidelines and standards which standards are applicable from the offshore oil & gas industry or other applicable industry?
-What software tools are usually used that input statistical wave data and output wave loads (e.g. WAMIT)?

RE: Wave Energy Project

Have a look at Aquastructures in Norway. They have software and analysis for many marine applications.

RE: Wave Energy Project

Your time zone says you should probably stick closer to home with the API series. Although most are targeted for fixed structures,
Table 1 might give you some ideas of the range of API possibilities.

RE: Wave Energy Project

Similar to offshore oil and gas, using 100-year wave, wind, and current conditions seem to be common. DNV gives nice guidelines on this.
