WaveDyn provides a suitable platform for the accurate design of the widest possible range of wave energy converters, including point absorbers, attenuators, terminators and oscillating wave surge converters.
WaveDyn is a new integrated software package for the design of wave energy converters. It provides users with a fully coupled design tool, that has been validated with both commercial and R&D projects. Therefore this software enables users to conduct a series of performance and loading calculations for wave energy converter designs.
WaveDyn, as the first software of its kind, benefits from nearly 30 years of GL Garrad Hassan experience in developing engineering models and software. Cross-cutting features with the wind energy standard design tool Bladed include the sharing of the multibody structural dynamics engine, which provides a solid foundation for consistently reliable and accurate results.
