报告题目：Recent developments in the optimisation of wave energy devices
This presentation will give a brief overview of the recent developments in the hydrodynamic analysis and optimisation of wave energy devices that have been carried out at the University of Bath, UK. It will discuss what have be involved in the research for assessing the performance and optimisation of wave energy devices. Performance for both single device and devices in array under both regular and irregular waves from different directions will be discussed in the presentation.
Dr Jun Zang is the Director of the Research Unit for Water, Environment and Infrastructure Resilience (WEIR) at the University of Bath, UK. In the past year, she was the Chair of the PRIMaRE, a partnership of world-class research institutions based in the West, South, and South West of England for research in Marine Renewable Energy.
Dr. Zang’s research concerns the hydrodynamic loadings on urban, coastal and offshore structures and the impact of extreme events on such structures. Her research group at Bath is one of the leading groups in developing and using advanced CFD tools in modelling complex free surface flows, wave-structure interactions, urban and coastal flooding, violent wave impact on offshore wind turbine foundations and optimisation of wave energy devices. She chaired the prestigious 30th International Workshop on Water Waves and Floating Bodies in the UK in 2015 and the 3rd PRIMaRE Conference in MRE in 2016.
