SENERWave is a software designed by SENER that couples 2 different solvers to simulate floating and fixed devices and structures in sea conditions: a fluid dynamic solver devoted to seakeeping simulations of 3D multi-body radiation, and diffraction problems and an open source equation based language to model complex physical systems. Simulation has to couple hydrodynamic and power take off interaction.

SENERWave allows to

  • Introduce the Wave Climate & Bathymetry:
    • Monochromatic & irregular waves, white noise
    • Different spectrum (JONSWAP, Pierson – Moskowitz, TMA…)
    • Currents
    • Wind forces
  • Introduce the Physics and Dynamics of the devices.
    • 3D Geometry of floating and fixed devices and platforms
    • Mooring Systems
    • Pneumatic, hydraulic or mechanic conversion systems
  • Allow to import and maintain meteorological and oceanic libraries for different locations.
    • Meteorological Summary
    • Scatter Diagram
    • Waves statistics.
    • Energy Evolution in different periods (kW/m).
