Abstract

Wave Carpet is a novel deep offshore wavepower floating system concept funded by the Office of Naval Research that will have low overall life cycle cost due to an integrated design and be rapidly re-deployable. In this paper we numerically model the Wave Carpet motion using a coupled hydro-elastic time-domain solution. The problem is resolved by the finite element method in twodimensions with certain restrictions on the initial distribution of the potential function. Typical results of the geometrical and physical parameters on energy distribution along the carpet are presented.
