Huang, Ming and Aggidis, George A. (2008) Developments, expectations of wave energy converters and mooring anchors in the UK. Journal of Ocean University of China, 7 (1). pp. 10-16.Full text not available from this repository.
The paper introduces the important developments of Wave Energy Converters (WECs) in the UK, and the generic anchor types for WECs and similar structures. Several WECs and their characteristics are introduced to explain the development direction. The anchors are discussed in relation to the behaviour and performance of WECs, and comparisons are made with similar aspects of the offshore industry. Typical and desirable features of anchors for WECs are summarized. Additionally, expectations and research suggestions for WECs and their anchor design are presented.
