The contents of the book will cover the required material for OWTs and WECs applications with focus to the needs of engineers and researchers in this field and how the aforementioned factors are appropriately addressed. Particular emphasis has been paid in the presentation of methods that should be followed for the appropriate modeling of these energy systems in standalone and farm/array configuration.

This book helps students, researchers and engineers with mid-engineering background to get good insight on theories, numerical analysis methods and experimental methods for the development of numerical and physical models of OWTs and WECs.

About the Author

Dr. Constantine Michailides holds a BSc, MSc and PhD in Civil Engineering from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh), Greece. He completed his PhD in Marine and Offshore Engineering in hydroelasticity of floating structures and wave energy production. He joined the Centre for Ships and Ocean Structures (CeSOS) and Centre for Autonomous Marine Operations and Systems (AMOS) in the Department of Marine Technology at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). At NTNU he worked as a Researcher, mainly on projects with a focus on experimental and numerical investigation of combined offshore wind turbines and ocean energy devices. He was then appointed as a Senior Lecturer in the Marine and Offshore Engineering at LJMU. Dr. Michailides has more than 10 years of research and teaching experience in numerical analysis, experimental testing and structural-field monitoring of offshore and coastal structures and systems. His research focuses on global and local numerical analysis of offshore structures and systems (oil and gas, and renewable energy), fluid-structure interaction, hydro -dynamics - elasticity, ocean energy devices, offshore wind technology, offshore combined energy systems, physical model testing, structural health monitoring, optimization, genetic algorithms and floating bridges/tunnels. Recent interests include CFD and reliability analysis for offshore engineering applications.
