This work presents a brief study about the wave energy as well as a computational modeling of an overtopping device. The numerical simulation was performed with the FLUENT® Computational Fluid Dynamic software code, employing the multiphase Volume of Fluid (VOF) model. The obtained results showed a satisfactory agreement between the numerical and(More)
This work presents the computational modeling of a converter of wave energy in electrical energy. The converter is Oscillating Water Column (OWC) type, submitted to the wave climate of Rio Grande city. The numerical simulation was performed using FLUENT® package and employing the multiphase Volume of Fluid (VOF) model in the wave generation and in the(More)
This work studies two different numerical methodologies for the generation of regular gravity waves. Numerical simulations for the wave generation were performed with the FLUENT® package, using the multiphase Volume of Fluid (VOF) model to reproduce the wave propagation inside the tank. Therefore, it was possible to analyze two methodologies for(More)
