This thesis presents research which shows that a helically configured Oscillating Water Column (OWC) could deliver improved performance compared to a conventional tube OWC, whilst saving a significant amount of draft. It is anticipated that savings in the deployment costs for this compact machine will outweigh any additional manufacturing costs. In order to prove the benefits of the helical concept, its performance relative to a conventional plain tube OWC was investigated in detail using… CONTINUE READING
