Abstract

The project will study nonlinear wave-structure interaction for wave energy converters, mainly using the CFD software OpenFOAM. Dynamics and forces will be studied in different extreme waves such as tsunami. We ask for a medium project so that Linnea Sjökvist has the possibility to run enough simulations required for her PhD thesis.
