## Abstract

**:**

## 1. Introduction

## 2. MILDwave-NEMOH Coupled Model

#### 2.1. Basis of the MILDwave-NEMOH Coupled Model

- A first simulation is performed in MILDwave to obtain the incident wave field in the time-domain, without any floating structure in the numerical basin. The wave characteristics at the coupling location are computed and used as input values for NEMOH.
- A second simulation is performed in NEMOH to calculate the perturbed wave field around the floating structure at the coupling location in the frequency-domain.
- A third simulation is performed in MILDwave to obtain the perturbed wave field in the time-domain. The perturbed wave field from NEMOH is transformed from the frequency-domain to the time-domain and coupled into MILDwave by prescribing an internal wave generation boundary.
- Finally, the total wave field is obtained as the combination of the incident and perturbed wave fields calculated in MILDwave in the time-domain.

#### 2.2. The Wave Propagation Model MILDwave

#### 2.3. The Wave-Structure Interaction Solver, NEMOH

- The flow is inviscid.
- The flow is irrotational.
- The fluid is incompressible.
- The motion amplitudes of the modelled floating bodies are much smaller than the wavelength.
- The sea bottom is flat.

#### 2.4. Generation of the Incident Wave Field

#### 2.5. Calculation of the Perturbed Wave Field

#### 2.6. Calculation of the Total Wave Field

## 3. Numerical Framework

#### 3.1. Modelled WECs and Array Layout

- Heaving Cylindrical Wave Energy Converter (HCWEC): is a disc shaped heaving buoy WEC with a diameter, ∅, of 20.0 m, a height, ${h}_{HC}$, of 4.0 m, and a draft, ${d}_{HC}$, of 2.0 m. HCWECs are designed to be deployed at water depths of around 30.0 m.
- Oscillating Wave Surge Wave Energy Converter (OSWEC): the second WEC chosen is a bottom-fixed pitching flap driven by the surge motion of the waves. OSWECs are designed to be deployed in shallow water at depths of 10.0–20.0 m. The simulated OSWEC has dimensions of 20.0 m width, ${w}_{OS}$, 1.0 m thickness, ${t}_{OS}$, and 12.0 m height, ${h}_{OS}$. It is hinged at the seabed with pitching motion about its bottom end.
