  • Finite Element Simulations of Two-phase Flow and Floating Bodies Using FEniCS-HPC 

    Moragues, M.Autoridad BCAM; Castanon, D.; Degirmenci, N.C.; Jansson, J.; Nava, V.Autoridad BCAM; Krishnasamy, E.; Hoffman, J.Autoridad BCAM (2018-07)
    We present a variational multiscale stabilized finite element method to solve the variable density incompressible Navier-Stokes equations for the simulation of two-phase flow. We introduce a level-set method based on the ...
  • Hydrodynamic identification of NAUTILUS FOWT platform from small scale tests 

    Galván, J.; Sánchez-Lara, M.; Garrido-Mendoza, C.; Pérez-Morán, G.; Boulluec, M.L.; Augier, B.; Rodriguez-Arias, R.; Nava, V.Autoridad BCAM (2019)
    A small-scale tank test campaign of the NAUTILUS offshore wind floating semisub-mersible platform was held at the Ifremer Deep Water Basin within the framework of the MaRINET 2 project. The support structure consists in ...
  • Layout Optimisation of Wave Energy Converter Arrays 

    Mercadé Ruiz, P.; Nava, V.Autoridad BCAM; Topper, M.B.R.; Ruiz Minguela, P.; Ferri, F.; Kofoed, J.P. (2017-08-24)
    This paper proposes an optimisation strategy for the layout design of wave energy converter (WEC) arrays. Optimal layouts are sought so as to maximise the absorbed power given a minimum q-factor, the minimum distance between ...
  • Mooring system monitoring of offshore renewable energy floating platforms 

    Touzon, I.; Garcia-Corcuera, A.; Nava, V.Autoridad BCAM; Rodriguez-Arias, R.; de Miguel, B. (2019)
    An appropriate schedule of the operations for the maintenance (both long and short term) of offshore renewable energy devices can be a crucial key factor for assessing the economic viability of marine energy projects. ...
  • Reducing variability in the cost of energy of ocean energy arrays 

    Topper, M.B.R.; Nava, V.Autoridad BCAM; Collin, A.J.; Bould, D.; Ferri, F.; Olson, S.S.; Dallmann, A.R.; Roberts, J.D.; Ruiz Minguela, P.; Jeffrey, H.F. (2019-09)
    Variability in the predicted cost of energy of an ocean energy converter array is more substantial than for other forms of energy generation, due to the combined stochastic action of weather conditions and failures. If the ...
  • Technology-Agnostic Assessment of Wave Energy System Capabilities 

    Ruiz‐minguela, P.; Blanco, J.M.; Nava, V.Autoridad BCAM; Jeffrey, H.F. (2022-04-01)
    Developing new wave energy technologies is risky, costly and time-consuming. The large diversity of concepts, components and evaluation criteria creates a vast design space of potentially feasible solutions. This paper ...
