3 Oscillating Wave Surge Converter (OWSC)  Oyster Oyster wave surge energy converter, developed by Aquamarine Power. Bottom hinged large buoyant flap Wave motion back and forth oscillations of the flap High pressure water pumped to shore to drive a turbine Location in sea : distance from shoreline 500m water depth 10 15m prototype Oyster 800 (26 m wide, 15 m high)
4 Observations in real sea Prototype Oyster 800 in Oarkney Islands (significant wave height 5m) https :// 4
5 Motivations and objectives 5 Small scale experiments revealed high magnitude, short duration, "impulsive" load! slamming event Objectives Develop understanding of the slam loading process and its characteristics This knowledge feeds into the extreme load case for Oyster design, i.e. pressure scaling methodology
6 Previous work 6 Previous work is difficult to relate to wave energy converters Oyster is not a static structure as most in coastal engineering Strong coupling between Oyster and wave motion Wave impact on a fixed structure Water entry of a ship in water
7 2D tests in wave flume at Ecole Centrale Marseille 7 Experiments performed at Ecole Centrale Marseille (2013 & 2014) 40 th scale model of generic Oyster (scaled by Froude U/ gh) Flap height 31cm High speed camera visualisations Sensors Flap rotation Wave gauges Single pressure transducer

10 Slamming event 9 1 : Wave crest pushes flap landward
11 Slamming event 9 2 : Flap remerges due to its buoyancy after crest passes
12 Slamming event 9 3 : Flap accelerates seaward, water drops down the face
13 Slamming event 9 4 : Water rushing down the face creates dip in water level
14 Slamming event 9 5 : Start of slamming phase, as flap reenters the water
15 Slamming event 9 6 : Water jet travels up the flap face
16 Slamming event 9 7 : Jet continues to move up
17 Slamming event 9 8 : Water jet is ejected in front of the flap
18 Impact pressure 10 1 : Beginning of slam event
19 Impact pressure 10 2 : Pressure increase as jet builds
20 Impact pressure 10 3 : Peak pressure under jet root
