This paper describes a computationally efficient numerical simulation methodology which may be used to model wave energy converters in power-production mode with high levels of accuracy. The technique combines a linear, boundary element model of the hydrodynamic forces, with a non-linear finite element simulation of the structural response. Verification of the methodology centres on a floating point absorber which was designed by the U.S. Department of Energy as part of their reference model project.
