This Draft about the Point Absorber research and perspective within the Canaries Ocean Wave Energy sector was peer-reviewed and funded, though neither the conference was attended, nor the work defended. Intention hereby is to provide further entries and additional information about its current status, as well as to share at a glance eventual R & D...

... damping. Finally, current tendency after [22] is to compute the so-called c w,r ratio as c w,r = c w,max /d ø ≥ 3, which is dependant on the max. absorption width c w,max [23], All of this has to be considered, when making usage of the next introduced software packages available for hydrodynamic modeling. As it can be checked on the following Fig. (2), the classical PA geometry (r)evolution is abstracted as front sectional sketch with a self-contained double entendre: Fig. (2) depicts a sectional view of a generic PA, which contains the floater geometry on the one hand, and numerical methodologies and hydrodynamic codes applied on the other. From top to bottom, for an axisymmetric ...

From top to bottom, for an axisymmetric float in heave mode, the reader is first addressed to Airy theory (also known as Linear Potential or Potential flow theory LPT). ...
