Default Wave energy devices

I have posted this on the Main Forum, but I'm particularly interested regarding CFX.

Thanks <hr> Hi,

I've done a bit of search on the web, but didn't find that much information. I'm looking for examples of CFD applied to wave energy devices. So, if you had done some work in this area, or know about it, I would appreciate if you could point some articles, theses, etc, about this theme.

I'm pretty sure CFD can play an important role in improving these devices, as we're talking about extracting energy from a fluid. But I'd like to hear opinions about limitations of CFD, and specially about CFD commercial software, in dealing with this kind of application. And also opinions on what you think that CFD, and again specially CFD commercial software, will be able to do in the next few years.

Thanks,

Rui
