    Abstract

    The paper is dedicated to the study of non-linear waves acting on three dimensional surface-piercing structures. A time-domain non-linear potential-flow model has been developed to predict the largeamplitude motions of devices in a prescribed seaway. While earlier models have been developed for single wave energy devices, this paper addresses multi-body devices, with particular application to the WAVEBOB wave energy device.
