Abstract

Abstract|Verication and validation techniques can
provide a strategic framework for improving the predic-
tive capability of numerical models used in the marine
renewable energy sector. In addition, it is proposed that
the adoption of open source community models make
implementing such strategies more straightforward. A
technique of particular interest is the Phenomena Iden-
tication and Ranking Table (PIRT). Such a table can
be used to quantify the current state of knowledge and
the subsequent requirements for improving the predic-
tive capability of modelling software. After assessing
and collating the current software usage trends within
the wave and tidal numerical modelling community, an
example PIRT is presented for tidal energy converter
hydrodynamics.
