This training school aims to give a good introduction about the meshless particle methods based on SPH (Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics) methodology and its benefits in the simulation of Wave Energy Converters (WECs).
The agenda includes the topics:
Numerical hydrodynamic modelling for WECs
The Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics method
The DualSPHysics code
Applications in coastal engineering
Practical session I: Dam-break, Regular waves
Coupling with Chrono and MoorDyn
Your own experience with SPH
Practical session II: Point absorber, Moored device
Practical session III: OWSC, Pelamis
