Wave energy, a relatively abundant as well as benign power source, receives international attention from a growing number of industrial nations, where exploitation depends on research knowledge and development. This new book provides a broad coverage of valuable background information needed by engineers and scientists involved in energy supply and utilization; and is the most comprehensive introduction to the full range of technical aspects of wave energy of which the publishers are aware. The mathematical treatment is kept at a level comprehensible to non-specialist engineers: at the same time, all the most important analytical results are reported. The author stresses the importance of dimensional analysis in relation to model testing, deals with the engineering aspects, including turbomachinery, hydraulic pumps and motors, electrical generation and transmission; and described the programmes of research, development and demonstration carried out for the USA< UK, Japan, Norway and Sweden. The text is well illustrated with photographs and explanatory diagrams, includes an extensive list of up-to-date references, as well as a list of all the organisations currently involved in wave energy research and development.
