Abstract
In this work, the capabilities of the open source code DualSPHysics coupled with the multiphysics library Project Chrono are shown. The framework is validated through an experimental campaign performed on a wave energy converter, which consists of a cylindrical heaving-buoy and a power take-off unit. The numerical model proves to correctly reproduce the hydrodynamic response of the wave energy converter under regular waves, and with three different damping coefficients of the power take-off.
