Proceedings of the International Symposium on Utilization of Ocean Waves, held in La Jolla, California, June 16-17, 1986.
This collection contains 11 papers on energy conversion from ocean waves. Papers review the state of the art in pneumatic wave energy conversion as well as the associated peripheral technologies, such as capture chamber research and design, turbine design and performance, and power take-off and integration. Several papers describe attempts at commercialization, while others report on various levels of research and development. Applications of the utilization of ocean waves in Japan, Norway, Denmark, and the United Kingdom are included.
