GAJA, Santiago; MENDOZA, Edgar  and  SILVA, Rodolfo. Geometric optimization of a submerged lens for wave energy focusing. Tecnol. cienc. agua [online]. 2019, vol.10, n.6, pp.117-146.  Epub May 15, 2020. ISSN 2007-2422.

Abstract In this paper, the use of submerged structures of elliptical form are proposed as a viable alternative to focusing of the swell and with it to have high energy sources for its use as a source of renewable energy. A numerical model, validated with experimental data, was used to determine the optimal geometry of the submerged elliptical structure in terms of the length and direction of the incident wave. The results allow the design of the submerged elliptical lenses to function in local hydrodynamic conditions to obtain maximum performance and offer metrics of their efficiency for different geometries in terms of their eccentricity, height, and depth of installation.

Keywords : CELERIS; energy focalization; submerged lenses; wave energy.
