The authors of this timely reference provide an updated and global view on ocean wave energy conversion a and they do so for wave energy developers as well as for students and professors. The book is orientated to the practical solutions that this new industry has found so far and the problems that any device needs to face. It describes the actual principles applied to machines that convert wave power to electricity and examines state-of-the-art modern systems.... of the behaviour of fluids can be gained from a comprehensive textbook on fluid mechanics such as Douglas et al. ... 6.41 shows Stephen Saltera#39;s (1974) initial hydraulic solution to the conversion problem referred to at the start of this section.
