|Abstract: ||Abstract:In this study, a SPH model is preliminarily applied to estimate the interactions between a bottom-hinged wave energy converter (WEC) and free surface waves in a 2-D numerical wave flume. To estimate the capturing efficiency of a WEC in this flume, a monochromatic wave with height of 7.15 cm and period of 1.56 s based on a model scale of 1:20 of the in-situ wave conditions were adopted. The results show that the loading waves can cause the flapper to stably swing back and forth within average ranges of 16~18 degrees. The phases could directly influence the flapper's swinging and should potentially play a key role in capturing wave energy. Comparisons of the velocity profiles at different phases further illustrate that elliptical form of water particle trajectory could directly influence the rotations of flapper. When the flapper undergoes small rotations, most of the counterclockwise vortices in the weather side and clockwise ones in the lee side have occurred around the flapper. But when the flapper undergoes large rotations, those vortices would only occur near free-surface. Meanwhile, the circulations in the lee side of the flapper have increased while those in the weather side have decreased|
