Carter, Richard G. and Hurdle, D. P. (1983) Wave power absorption by a small body moving in surge. Applied Ocean Research, 5 (1). pp. 24-29. ISSN 0141-1187Full text not available from this repository.
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.
