In cooperation with DIMEAS – Politecnico di Torino and a Wave for Energy S.r.l., we had the pleasure of working on the ISWEC (Inertial Sea Wave Energy Converter), a breakthrough technology to convert the energy from the sea waves.
OPTIMAD Engineering supported the researchers of the Politecnico di Torino on the development of semi-analytical and CFD models aimed to the evaluation of the aerodynamic friction of the gyroscopic system. This work has been published in Antonello Sergej Sirigu, Federico Gallizio, Giuseppe Giorgi, Mauro Bonfani, Giovanni Bracco and Giuliana Mattiazzo – Numerical and experimental identification of the aerodynamic power losses of the ISWEC – J. Mar. Sci. Eng. 2020, 8(1), 49.
