Numerical investigation of a wave glider in head seas

A wave glider comprises a surface boat, which harvests energy from wave and solar power, a submerged glider containing six pairs of tandem hydrofoils and a tether connecting them in between. This paper presents a numerical simulation to predict the wave glider dynamic performance in head seas with the aid of computational fluid dynamic (CFD) method. The simulation involves two commercial CFD software packages, FINE/Marine and STAR-CCM+.
