  • Garcia, Gabriel; Ozkan-Haller, H. Tuba; Ruggiero, Peter (2011-12-19)
    This presentation was given as part of Oregon State University's College of Oceanographic and Atmospheric Sciences graduate student seminar series. It describes the basics of wave forecasting and then focuses on work im ...
  • Batten, Belinda; Polagye, Brian L. (Northwest National Marine Renewable Energy Center, 2013-05)
    In 2008, the US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Wind and Water Power Program issued a funding opportunity announcement to establish university-­‐led National Marine Renewable Energy Centers. Oregon ...
  • Schacher, Alphonse A. (2007-07-23)
    Ocean wave energy is rapidly becoming a field of great interest in the world of renewable energy. Significant advancements in design and technology are being made to make wave energy a viable alternative for our growing ...
  • VanderMeulen, Aaron H. (2007-07-12)
    Wave energy conversion devices are a rapidly growing interest worldwide for the potential to harness a sustainable and renewable energy source. Due to the oscillatory nature of ocean waves, the power generated from a per ...
  • Prudell, Joseph H. (2007-12-11)
    The world’s energy consumption is growing at an alarming rate and the need for renewable energy is apparent now more than ever. Estimates have shown that optimization of the extraction of energy from the ocean could si ...
  • Ernst, Steven George (2009-06-03)
    With the increasing effort to identify alternative methods of energy generation, extraction of ocean energy has gathered a large interest. Research and industry have begun considering wave energy as the next new alterna ...
  • Zhang, Heng (2003-06-27)
    The world's oceans contain tremendous renewable energy potentials. It is estimated that if 0.2% of the ocean's untapped energy could be harnessed, it could provide power sufficient for the entire world [1]. This thesis ...
  • Hovland, Justin (2010-06-22)
    Ocean Wave Energy Converters (WECs) operating on the water surface are subject to storms and other extreme events. In particular, high and steep waves, especially breaking waves, are likely the most dangerous to WECs. A ...
  • Hunter, Daniel A. (2009-05-26)
    Oregon’s coastal communities grew from the booming logging and fishing industries of the 19th century, but in recent decades have faced not only major declines in both timber and fish resources but also an increasing rel ...
  • Polagye, Brian L. (Northwest National Marine Renewable Energy Center, 2011-12)
    Reference Model #1 is a tidal turbine operating in a narrow, tidal channel. The site is a generalized version of Tacoma Narrows, Puget Sound, Washington. The resource is a mixed, mainly semidiurnal tidal regime with tw ...
  • Gore, Ganesh P. (2006-07-26)
    Accurate scaled modeling and simulation are critical to advancing ocean wave linear generator buoys. A 100th scaled model of ocean wave generator buoy systems is analyzed by solving the Navier-Stokes equations. These eq ...
  • Conway, Flaxen; Stefanovich, Maria; Stevenson, John; Yin, Yao; Campbell, Holly V.; Hunter, Daniel A.; Covell, Zack (2009-09-30)
    In 2007, the Oregon Wave Energy Trust (OWET) put out a request for proposals to begin to discover answers to many of the environmental and human dimensions questions. A multidisciplinary group of social scientists – Fl ...
  • Polagye, Brian; Thomson, Jim (Northwest National Marine Renewable Energy Center, 2010-04-08)
    From April 2009 to February 2010, coupons of materials which could be used in the rotor, drive train, or foundation of tidal energy devices were deployed in-situ on the seabed at a prospective tidal energy site to screen ...
  • Brown, Adam C. (2009-06-09)
    Ocean wave energy is a new and developing field of renewable energy with great potential. The energy contained in one meter of an average wave off the coast of Newport Oregon could supply dozens of homes with electricit ...
  • McNatt, Cameron (2011-12-19)
    This presentation was given as part of Oregon State University's College of Oceanographic and Atmospheric Sciences graduate student seminar series. It is critical to understand waves dynamics in order to design wave ener ...
