Design diagrams for wavelength discrepancy in tank testing with inconsistently scaled intermediate water depth

The title or this paper is a bit of a mouthful, but actually it covers a relatively simple subject: the errors that may arise if the water depth is not scaled consistently with other parameters when tank testing devices, particularly those designed to harness power from waves.

Re-creation of site-specific multi-directional waves with non-collinear current

This paper was published in the Ocean Engineering journal in October 2017. It was a joint piece of work with fellow IDCORE researcher at FloWave, Sam Draycott, building on our separate areas of research. In it, we demonstrate the capability of the FloWave facility to generate complex wave-current conditions, and also highlight the importance of considering even relatively low tidal currents when testing wave-energy devices.
