Abstract

Anchoring systems for wave energy converters
This study investigates the performance of different anchor types in sand when subjected to different loading conditions: monotonic, cyclic, and dynamic loading. Understanding the anchor response for these conditions is an important consideration for the design of floating wave energy converters that experience complex loading under both extreme storm conditions and under more moderate operating conditions. The findings of this study support a less conservative design basis, allowing smaller and less expensive anchors to be used, such that cost saving can be achieved for a wave energy project.
