Abstract

A proposed wave energy converter consists of an array of small floating bodies moving in surge and restrained by dampers. The hydrodynamic behaviour of one such body is studied theoretically and experimentally. Approximate agreement between theory and experiment is reported. The absorption length of individual bodies is small but it is suggested that their relatively low cost may make an array of these devices competitive with other types of wave energy converter.
