Abstract / Description of output

The numerical modelling of a generic power take-off (PTO) mechanism reacting against water inertia is presented. The PTO consists of a submerged hollow tube with a piston sliding within. The system is modelled using the boundary element method package WAMIT with the tube and the piston considered as separate bodies. The model is verified against computations involving benchmark formulations
