Application of URANS-VOF models in hydrodynamic study of oscillating water column

Dias, J.; Mendonça, A. C.; Didier, E.; Neves, M. G.; Conde, J. M.; Teixeira, P.

This paper presents a comparison of two URANS models based on the VoF approach, FLUENT (Fluent, 2006) and IH2VOF (Lara et al., 2011), to perform a detaiied analysis of the hydrodynamic phenomena outside and inside an open Oscillating Water Coiumn (OWC) device. This analysis is important to determine the ability of each solver in accurate modelling the complex non-linear phenomena which occur in the wave-fluid-s...

Lourenço, I.; Santos, J. A.; Fortes, C. J. E. M.; Reis, M. T. L. G. V.; Garcia, T.; Poseiro, P.; Craveiro, J.

This paper aims at presenting two diíferent methodologies to evaluale wave overtopping consequences: the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and the Analytic Network Process (ANP). The AHP is based on lhe comparison of successive and paired information that was selecled and quantified having in mind its hierarchic prioritization by taking into account lhe estimated relevance of each considered criterion or indicat...

Reis, M. T. L. G. V.; Mestre, R.; Neves, M. G.; Hu, K.; Dias, J.; Mendonça, A. C.; Didier, E.; Fortes, C. J. E. M.

This paper ilustrates lhe application of a non-linear shallow water numerical model, AMAZON, to study Oscillating Water Column Wave Energy Converters (OWC-WEC) inregrated in vertical breakwaters. This application has been performed within the scope of the research project DITOWEC - Development of an Integrated Tool for Numerical Modelling of Oscillating Water Cohumn Wave Energy Converters Integrated in Vertical...

Mendonça, A. C.; Jalon, M.L.; Correia, R.; Dias, J.; Neves, M. G.; Didier, E.

An analytical model is applied to a schematic case of an oscillating water column (OWC), without head loss, to obtain a first estimation of the chamber hydraulic efficiency. The IH2VOF numerical model of wave-structure interations is applied to perform an investigation, useful to complement and verify the analytical approach and analyses the flow characteristics on the OWC, including nonlinear effects. The nume...

Wave energy at Azores islands

Matos, A.; Madeira, F.; Fortes, C. J. E. M.; Didier, E.; Poseiro, P.; Jacob, J.

This paper focus on the sea wave characterization (significant wave height, peak wave period, mean wave period, mean wave direction) at the Azores archipelago and the evaluation of the wave energy source. For the sea wave characterization, the numerical mode! SWAN, is applied for a period of 10 years in several points around each of the nine islands of Azores, at the 100 m CD bathymetric. Based on those results...
