VALDEZ, P; PEREIRAS, B  e  CASTRO, F. Study of wave resource with CFD simulations. Rev. ciente. UCSA [online]. 2015, vol.2, n.1, pp.66-74. ISSN 2409-8752.

This work is a methodological description of the processes and concludes with the results obtained from the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations for harnessing ocean energy. There are countless applications for CFD in renewable resources and as complement of experimental case studies. We will focus on the simulations performed using the method known as oscillating water column (OWC), which converts the energy of waves into pneumatic power so that it can be then converted into mechanical energy through a reversible turbine. In addition, we will describe the operation of a particular system for the behavior of turbine group for describing the wave cycle so the results obtained were recognized by the international scientific community. This was accomplished by developing physical and numerical models, which has been modeled by stationary boundary conditions and subsequently validated by results of publications for experimental testing in order to better study them.

Palavras-chave : Fluid Mechanics; CFD; OWC; Turbines; Renewable energy.
