A third said elastic planar member couples to and extends between the fifth side of the third said buoyant planar member and the second side of a fourth said buoyant planar member. Elastic planar member 205 couples to and extends between buoyant planar member 136 and 142 in this example. The assembly 20 includes in this example a buoy 38 floating at the surface 34 of the waves, in this case wave 24. The assembly includes an anchor 40 abutting the bottom of the body of the water, in this example ocean floor 42. The buoy couples to the anchor via an elongate member, in this example rope 44. The rope has an extendable portion, as shown schematically by the coiled portion 46, to accommodate the changing levels of the ocean caused by the waves and the tide. Referring to FIG. 7, the electric energy passes through the cables 57 and 59 supported by tethers 54 and 56. As this energy is being extracted from the waves, the assembly 20 may further function thereby to reduce the height of the waves HWA passing therethrough and may thus provide a wave calming effect.
The wave-interacting portion of the assembly has a length LWI that extends between the proximal and distal ends thereof, and which is configured to extend in line with the direction of the waves, as shown by arrow of numeral 36. As seen in FIG. The result is that an array of such buoyant planar members and flexing piezoelectric/elastic planar members may operate in wave trains arriving from different directions either separately or simultaneously. Causas de dolor en la parte baja de la espalda . The use of rigid buoyant planar members 148 and 156 in this embodiment will enable the length of the flexing elastic planar members to be reduced along with the cost of the relatively expensive piezoelectric elements bonded above and below the elastic planar members compared to their cost for assembly 20. Assembly 20.1 may thus be more suitable for larger scale energy generation where costs of construction have to be minimised.

Put another way, the piezoelectric elements in this example should be polarised along their length LP as shown in FIG. 11, each of the buoyant planar members 148 have a length LB of three to four meters long. The piezoelectric elements 226 in this example have a thickness TP of about 1.6 millimeters. In this example, the elastic planar member is pre-stressed in tension while the piezoelectric elements are being bonded thereto in order to pre-compress the piezoelectric material so that the material is less prone to cracking at the tops and in the troughs of the steeper waves. The piezoelectric elements 86 and 88 comprise, in this example, thin top and bottom layers of material laminated to the elastic planar member 74 and which together form an elastic beam that is sufficiently flexible to conform with the waves 26 and 28. Typically each elastic planar member may be 90% or more of the total thickness comprising the sum of the thicknesses of the elastic planar member and piezoelectric elements.

In this example, the elastic planar members 74.6 are generally flat when disconnected from the assembly 20.6. The top portions 157.6 of the buoyant planar members 148.6 and 156.6 have tapered ends 478 and 480 to which the ends 460.6 and 462.6 of the elastic planar members 74.6 couple. The piezoelectric elements are bonded on just the top 78.6 of the straight elastic planar members 74.6 before clamping the ends 460.6 and 462.6 of the elastic planar members to outward sloping surfaces 479 and 481 on the top portions 157.6 or frames of the buoyant planar members 148.6 and 156.6. As seen in FIG. Since the piezoelectric elements form the outer layers of the elastic planar members, a large part of the energy is stored in them as they are stretched and compressed more than the elastic planar core.

FIGS. 19 to 20 show part of an assembly 20.5 for generating energy from waves according to a sixth aspect. One may model the wave shape as a sine wave and with this, it is possible using standard elastic beam theory to obtain an expression for the energy required to bend the laminated continuous elastic planar member of assembly 20 into this shape. FIG. 25 is a fragmented, top plan view of a floating piezoelectric assembly for generating energy from waves according to a tenth embodiment, the assembly includes a plurality of weighted top planar member strips shown partially removed to reveal a typical layout of the piezoelectric elements of the assembly on the top of a plurality of longitudinally-extending and spaced-apart elastic planar members of the assembly. Referring to FIG. 18, the assembly 20.4 includes a plurality of longitudinally spaced-apart rows of laterally-extending and laterally spaced-apart planar rigid members, in this example slats, including a first row 434 of slats 436 and 438, a second row 440 of slats 442 and 444, a third row 446 of slats 448 and 450 and a fourth row 452 of slats 454. The rows of slats are interposed between the rows 400, 404, 410 and 414 of elastic planar members.

10B, the piezoelectric elements 270 a and 270 b of the first lower row and fourth lower row are smaller than and, in this example, have lengths LR that less than half than, and in this example 2.5 times smaller than the lengths LP.1 of the piezoelectric elements 228 of the rest of the upper and lower rows of piezoelectric elements. 4, the buoyant planar member 68 is made of closed cell foam material in this example, in this case ETHAFOAM®: a flexible closed cell polyethylene foam product that may be purchased at Sealed Air Corporation, having an address of 8215 Forest Point Boulevard, Charlotte, N.C., 28273, USA.
This is shown by slabs 147 and 149 for member 148, with a bottom portion 151 thereof made of a floating material underneath and coupled to slab 149. Thus, the elastic planar members couple to and extend between the top portions of the buoyant planar members in this example. The piezoelectric elements 228 and 234 of the first upper row 263 thereof are staggered relative to at least one of the piezoelectric elements of the second upper row 265 thereof, in this example piezoelectric element 86.1. Dolor lumbar cuando estoy de pie . The piezoelectric elements 226 and 230 of the third row 267 thereof longitudinally align with respective ones of the piezoelectric elements 228 and 234 of the first row 263 thereof. In particular, there is provided a floating piezoelectric assembly for generating energy from waves. It will also be understood by someone skilled in the art that many of the details provided above are by way of example only and are not intended to limit the scope of the invention which is to be determined with reference to at least the following claims.
According to a fourth aspect, there is provided an assembly for generating energy from waves. Each of the elastic planar members includes a plurality of longitudinally-extending columns 314, 316 and 318 of longitudinally and laterally spaced apart piezoelectric elements 320, 322 and 324, 326 and 328, and 330, 332 and 334, respectively, bonded to the elastic planar members in a manner described in for assemblies 20.5 to 20.7, for example. The first layer 71 of piezoelectric elements 86, the second layer 73 of piezoelectric elements 88 and the elastic planar member 74 are therefore between the buoyant planar member 68 and the weighted planar member 80 in this embodiment. FIG. 6 is a schematic view of one of the piezoelectric elements of the assembly of FIG.
