Cover Story (view full-size image): Reproducing air compressibility effects in model scale OWC devices is challenging and therefore commonly ignored in tank testing. This can lead to substantially unrealistic results on the device performance relative to the full-scale device. In this paper, a new method for modelling air compressibility at the model scale is presented. The method uses variable volume chambers, which mimic air compressibility by storing energy under the form of strain energy. This method reduces the difficulties of implementation and enhances the application of the existing method to larger scales. View this paper.
