These drains 22 are small relative to the inlets 21 to allow only slow emptying of the tanks. More preferably the apparatus is configured to be effective at reacting only against waves of wavelength below a designated length. Preferably the apparatus is configured such that, in use, the chain is free-floating slack-moored and referenced against itself. If the waves are small, higher constraints may be provided against relative heave rotation than those provided against sway rotation. Alternatively, one or each joint may be a combined heave and sway joint. In one embodiment the system is incorporated in the lead (the ‘front’ or ‘upwave’) segment 3 of the converter 2. This encourages submergence of the front of the structure 1 in large waves, allowing large wave crests to pass over the whole converter, analogous to surfers diving under breaking wave crests when swimming from the beach.
Typically, to limit loading, the body members have sufficiently small depth and freeboard to experience complete submergence and emergence in large waves. In one embodiment the cross-section is wedge shaped so as to cause a lateral (perpendicular to chain axis) shift of the centre-of-buoyancy of the body member as it varies its degree of submergence to alter the roll response of the apparatus to provide improved power extraction or survival. In a further alternative embodiment (not illustrated), all the ram mount stubs 63 enter the end of one segment. The total length of the assembled structure 1 is therefore selected to be sufficiently long to provide adequate self referencing of the structure 1 in short wavelengths where not much power is available and there is a requirement to maximise power absorption, and sufficiently short to ‘hide’ in long wavelengths associated with storm waves in order to survive.
When the calculated maximum expected joint angle is exceeded, the converter has the in-built safety feature that each of the rams 33, 34, 35 is designed to detach from its rod end connection 36 whilst remaining attached at the cylinder end connection 37. This prevents rupture of the hydraulic hoses (not shown) connected to the ram cylinders and thus prevents spillage of hydraulic fluid into the environment. This angle (ψ) may be common to all joints 5 in the structure 1 or may vary along its length.

In an embodiment of the apparatus the body members incorporate areas of sacrificial structure which allow very large joint angles before the overall structural integrity or flotation of the member is compromised. The ends of the front and rear body members may be shaped to influence hydrodynamic characteristics. Preferably the apparatus comprises a plurality of body members and associated coupling members wherein said coupling members are adapted to connect adjacent ends of neighbouring body members to form an articulated structure. Dolor en la zona lumbar derecha . The apparatus is preferably configured to apply a roll angle away from horizontal and vertical (a roll bias angle) to the joints of the chain.
Preferably the apparatus is adapted to be situated in waves. Said elements may be adapted to extract power from said relative movement. Said roll bias angle may be varied to maximise power extraction. The yaw angle is determined to be a function of the power absorbed by the converter. This clipping limits the magnitude of forces and bending moments to which the structure of the converter is subjected in such adverse weather conditions, and increases the chances of survival of the structure 1. Hydrostatic clipping is shown in FIG. FIG. 9b is a cut-away view of the embodiment of, FIG. FIG. 3 shows a detail of a joint of the apparatus of FIG. The apparatus may further comprise a mooring system.

Said variable ballasting system may be confined to a front unit or units of the chain so as, in use, to encourage the front of the chain to dive under large wave crests. For this purpose the apparatus may be configured such that, in use, the chain is positioned to span at least two wave crests. 8a. In this configuration adjacent pairs of substantially orthogonal joints are combined in a two-degree-of-freedom or universal joint 50 having axes A and B. This joint 50 comprises a spider 52, extending in a generally vertical plane, and two triangulated lever arms 53, 54 each extending in a plane substantially perpendicular to the plane of the spider 52 and each rigidly connected to the spider 52. The spider is supported on axis A relative to the first segment 2 a by hinge brackets 57 a and on axis B relative to the second segment 2 b by hinge brackets 57 b.
2 and 4a, each joint 5 is attached to a segment 2 with its axis approximately orthogonal to the joint on either side, Thus adjacent joints 5 a, 5 b are orientated approximately orthogonal with respect to each other. A reinforced ram mounting pad 31 is secured to each segment, on a radial axis perpendicular to the axis 40 of the pin. The ram diameters, and moment arm through which they act on a joint 5 are selected for a particular structure 1 to apply the desired restraint to the joint 5 for the particular conditions the structure 1 is tailored to encounter. These areas of sacrificial structure behave in a manner similar to crumple zone on a car. Dolor de lumbar sintomas . The converter is optionally provided with an active or passive ballasting system which varies the level at which the individual segments or the complete structure floats.

The rear end 11 may be conical or flat. With the exception of the end segments 3, 4, the segments 2 are of equal length. A further alternative joint configuration employs single degree-of-freedom joints in combination with the internal or external lever arm ram configuration of the embodiment described above. 3 the segments 2 are connected by external in-line rams. In addition, the maximum joint angle the converter 1 is expected to encounter is calculated, and the stroke of the rams 33, 34, 35 is selected to be greater than this angle.
The front end 10 of the structure 1 is conical.
Said variable ballasting system may act to vary the roll bias angle of the chain, for example by the provision of asymmetric ballasting. Said chain may be curved. The ratio of the magnitudes of constraint may be used to increase power capture in small waves. The front end 10 of the structure 1 is conical. That is, in use, the structure 1 is semi-submerged.

11(c), the segments 2 adopt a significantly flattened profile compared to the wave profile 28, and the segment 2″ near the wave trough is raised out of the water, while segment 2″ near the wave peak is totally submerged. A wide range of damping levels may be obtained by selecting or deselecting a ram 33, 25, and by altering the system pressure level. Although the segments shown in FIGS. Each end face 9 of the intermediate segments 2, and the inner end faces 9 of the end segments 3, 4 are chamfered to allow clearance for extreme joint motion.
The joints may be alternatively be positioned with relative angles other than 90 degrees if a particular situation dictates. Alternatively the coupling members may be universal joints. For this reason, the preferred material for the converter is reinforced concrete. This invention relates to an apparatus and method for extracting power from water waves, particularly ocean waves. Examples of useful byproducts are hydrogen through electrolysis; and desalinated water. 4b and 4 c. Dolor lumbar en ingles .

Existen varias formas de RGE: como la enfermedad por reflujo erosivo (cuando se presenta con esofagitis), la enfermedad por reflujo no erosiva (no hay esofagitis y es la forma más frecuente de reflujo), el síndrome de Mallory-Weiss (la mucosa del esófago ha cambiado a causa de una esofagitis crónica) y otras manifestaciones extraesofágicas, que es cuando el RGE se produce fuera del esófago y puede afectar a las vías respiratorias causando tos crónica, laringitis o asma. Se trata de una enfermedad muy frecuente que afecta a más hombres que mujeres. Asimismo, se puede recurrir a radiografías con la administración de bario opaco, pero solo una de cada tres personas con la patología tiene cambios que son visibles en la placa. Entre las causas más comunes de la patología están el tabaquismo, el consumo frecuente de alcohol, de comidas picantes o con exceso en grasas, de café o chocolate. Una de las primeras indicaciones para combatir el reflujo es la modificación del estilo de vida.
