Predictions of the hydrodynamic performance of the wave rotor wave energy device

Chaplin, J.R. and Retzler, C.H. (1995) Predictions of the hydrodynamic performance of the wave rotor wave energy device Applied Ocean Research, 17, (6), pp. 343-347.

Record type: Article


This paper provides a linear solution for the Wave Rotor, a wave energy device that comprises two parallel counter rotating cylinders in orbital motion. Theoretical results are obtained for the radiated waves generated by the device, and for its efficiency. Comparisons with earlier measurements of radiated waves show very promising agreement.
