Abstract

The device under investigation in this paper consists of a float used to capture tidal energy, which is tethered by multiple flexible cables to a large barge-like reactor. The proposed float is made of a continuously wound glass-reinforced composite shell with stainless steel bolting plates integrat...

The proposed float is made of a continuously wound glass-reinforced composite shell with stainless steel bolting plates integrated into the float walls to allow the connection of 5 stainless steel cables. Numerical computations are required to assess whether a delamination of the composite layers in the float is likely. The manufacturing of the device has various potential uncertainties that should be investigated, such as the number of the plies, the bond strength between the composite layers, and the fibre orientations of the composite material relative to the applied load. This paper provides a multi-level strategy to optimise the composite float system, which is manufactured from glass-reinforced plastic (GRP). In contrast to previous publications on the topic, the current work uses an efficient link between ANSYS Workbench and MATLAB through an in-house code that has been developed over 3 years. This allowed the whole process to be fully automated and to reduce the time and cost of the simulations. Previously, ANSYS APDL was linked to MATLAB, but limitations in terms of the geometry and boundary conditions made it impractical when compared to ANSYS Workbench for the simulation of complex features. This makes the current approach unique and rare when compared to the published work in the field. This approach allows the use of a huge number of trials and is able to reduce the number of parameters to be studied by selecting the most sensitive ones. Additionally, the developed tools may be used for the efficient, robust optimisation of the proposed structure. The current study has focused on exploring the effects of the fibre orientations and the optimum number of plies on the overall performance of the structure.</abstract><type>Journal Article</type><journal>Eng</journal><volume>1</volume><journalNumber>2</journalNumber><paginationStart>122</paginationStart><paginationEnd>136</paginationEnd><publisher>MDPI AG</publisher><placeOfPublication/><isbnPrint/><isbnElectronic/><issnPrint/><issnElectronic>2673-4117</issnElectronic><keywords>robust design; floating systems; bond strength; composites; filament winding; uncertainty; ANSYS; MATLAB</keywords><publishedDay>13</publishedDay><publishedMonth>10</publishedMonth><publishedYear>2020</publishedYear><publishedDate>2020-10-13</publishedDate><doi>10.3390/eng1020008</doi><url/><notes/><college>COLLEGE NANME</college><department>Engineering</department><CollegeCode>COLLEGE CODE</CollegeCode><DepartmentCode>EEN</DepartmentCode><institution>Swansea University</institution><apcterm/><lastEdited>2021-05-21T12:27:14.1845054</lastEdited><Created>2021-04-19T11:44:01.6158107</Created><path><level id="1">Faculty of Science and Engineering</level><level id="2">School of Engineering and Applied Sciences - Uncategorised</level></path><authors><author><firstname>Nada</firstname><surname>Aldoumani</surname><orcid/><order>1</order></author><author><firstname>Cinzia</firstname><surname>Giannetti</surname><orcid>0000-0003-0339-5872</orcid><order>2</order></author><author><firstname>Zak</firstname><surname>Abdallah</surname><orcid/><order>3</order></author><author><firstname>Fawzi</firstname><surname>Belblidia</surname><orcid>0000-0002-8170-0468</orcid><order>4</order></author><author><firstname>Hamed</firstname><surname>Haddad Khodaparast</surname><orcid>0000-0002-3721-4980</orcid><order>5</order></author><author><firstname>Michael</firstname><surname>Friswell</surname><order>6</order></author><author><firstname>Johann</firstname><surname>Sienz</surname><orcid>0000-0003-3136-5718</orcid><order>7</order></author></authors><documents><document><filename>56686__19676__41091ee6ec1641ec83faa4fe19a84b48.pdf</filename><originalFilename>56686.pdf</originalFilename><uploaded>2021-04-19T11:47:25.4771132</uploaded><type>Output</type><contentLength>3644614</contentLength><contentType>application/pdf</contentType><version>Version of Record</version><cronfaStatus>true</cronfaStatus><documentNotes>&#xA9; 2020 by the authors.
