This volume examines the interaction between ocean waves and oscillating systems. With a focus on linear analysis of low-amplitude waves, the text is designed to convey a thorough understanding of wave interactions. Topics include the background mathematics of oscillations, gravity waves on water, the dynamics of wave-body interactions, and the absorption of wave energy by oscillating bodies. While the focus is on linear theory, the practical application of energy storage and transport is interwoven throughout. Each chapter ends with problems. A solutions manual is available for instructors.

Book Description:

This book examines the interaction between ocean waves and oscillating systems. Topics covered include the background mathematics of oscillations, gravity waves on water, the dynamics of wave-body interactions, and the absorption of wave energy by oscillating bodies. Linear algebra, complex numbers, differential equations, and Fourier transformation are utilized as bases for the analysis, and each chapter ends with problems. While the book's focus is on linear theory, the practical application of energy storage and transport is interwoven throughout. Graduate students and researchers will find it an excellent source of wave energy theory and application. A solutions manual is available for instructors.

Review:

"This book will be appropriate for those with backgrounds in elementary fluid dynamics or hydrodynamics and mathematical analysis. Graduate students and researchers will find it an excellent source of wave-energy theory and application." Engineering Designer

"...the text is well-written, the topics considered are appropriate for the subject, and the text construction is of high quality...For researchers, the text is suitable for reference, however it is more suitable as a textbook for graduate instruction." Applied Mechanics Reviews
