题目:Oscillating Wave Surge Converters

时间:2016319号上午9:00-10:00

地点:浙江大学玉泉校区5   – 333

报告人:Prof. Frédéric Dias

 

内容摘要:

New mathematical models have been developed to study the behaviour of wave energy converters and in particular of oscillating wave surge converters (OWSCs). The models can be used to investigate the behaviour of various types of arrays of OWSCs in random seas. The mathematical models are based on linear theory and therefore are not valid when the waves become nonlinear. Computational models have also been developed to be able to deal with nonlinear waves. These tools are well suited to study the slamming of OWSCs. Comparisons between numerical results and experimental results will be presented.

 

报告人简介

Frederic Dias graduated from Ecole Centrale de Paris, a French engineering school, in 1984. He received a PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, USA, in 1986. He started his career in the US before coming back to France to join CNRS in 1990. In 2000, he moved to EcoleNormaleSuperieure de Cachan and has been a Professor of Applied Mathematics since. In 2009, he went to University College Dublin (UCD) onleave to work on wave energy converters in close collaboration with industry. He is now leading a team of 15 people at UCD. In 2012, he received an advanced grant from the European Research Council (ERC) to work on extreme wave events. In 2014, he received a proof of concept grant from the ERC to work on wave measurement. His stay at UCD has been extended until 2019. In 2014, Prof.Frédéric Dias has been awarded the Emilia Valori prize for applications of science by the French Academy of Sciences. Prof.Frédéric Dias is co-chief editor of the European Journal of Mechanics B/Fluids and Secretary General of the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (IUTAM). Board appointments include: Scientific Council of the Fondation des Treilles, Technical Committee of Eurogia+, the EUREKA Cluster for low-carbone energy technologies.
