The fixed member may comprise a plurality of linked segments. In alternative embodiments, the cable 12 may comprise rigid, flexible, or non-linear materials. The damping member may comprise combinations of the materials set out above, as well as other materials which exhibit the required non-linear stress-strain characteristics. Alternatively, or additionally, the elongate flexible element comprises a plurality of portions, wherein a portion comprises a different material to one or more other portions so that the composite response is a combination of the responses of the material of each of the portions. The method may further comprise providing a plurality of deformable elements and/or a single deformable element having a plurality of portions, such that the composite response is a combination of the responses of each of the plurality of elements or portions. WO 96/27055 describes a hysteretic damping apparatus and method which uses one or more tension elements fabricated from shape memory alloy to cycle through a superelastic stress-strain hysteresis.

In one embodiment, a shape or diameter of the elongate flexible element varies along its length, so that the element comprises a plurality of portions of different shape or diameter and the composite response is a combination of the responses each of the different shape or diameter portions. In alternate embodiments, the roller may be replaced with another element which allows the spring to slide freely in a single direction. As shown in the figure, a more complex stress-strain profile may be achieved than is possible with a single material or element.

In this embodiment, the shape of the elongate flexible element 6 varies along its length, so that the element comprises a plurality of portions 6 a, 6 b, 6 c, 6 d, 6 e of different shape. In an embodiment, the deformable element comprises a plurality of elements or portions and the composite response is a combination of the responses of each of the plurality of elements or portions. Preferably, the mooring component comprises a plurality of deformable elements and/or a single deformable element having a plurality of portions and the composite response is a combination of the responses of each of the plurality of elements or portions. As set out above, an element having a non-linear stress-strain response is one in which the counterforce exerted by the element is non-linearly related to the force applied thereto and to the rate of application of such force. Ideally, a deep sea mooring system needs to be adaptable to the sea states at the location at which it is placed and so it must adjust to the applied forces from the waves over very short time periods.

Ideally, the mooring system should absorb load forces at the lowest possible breaking limit. The moveable member 3 therefore moves relative to the first fixed member 4. The power take off device converts this relative motion to electrical energy. For a single, unconnected WEC device, the fixed member is preferably a ring having a relatively large diameter to ensure that there is significant relative movement between the moveable member of the WEC device and the ring. For example, a 15 meter long component capable of stretching to 40 meters reduces the footprint of the mooring system from 150 meters to 40 meters.
A further disadvantage of the catenary system is fatigue, as the mooring lines tend to wear at the seabed touch down point. Dampers 218 are provided between the floats at the pivot point to control the maximum extension and rate of extension between the floats to be controlled. The damping structure comprises a plurality of dampers 178 so that the maximum force applied to any one damper is reduced. A material or member having a non-linear stress-strain response is one in which the counterforce exerted by the material or member is non-linearly related to the force applied thereto and to the rate of application of such force. Dolor de espalda continuo . The term “passive” as used herein indicates that the stress-strain response of the damping member is a function of the material or materials comprised therein or their design, shape or configuration, rather than being a mechanical construct requiring some additional input such as air or hydraulic pressure.
When the moveable member of the WEC device is at the highest point of the wave, it is desirable that the angle formed between the fixed member and the moveable member is less than about 45 degrees. The greater the distance between the point of application of the counterforce and the centre of rotation, the lower the damping force required to counteract pitch. 5. The forward motion of the wave also exerts a lateral surge force FH on the WEC device. The first fixed member 4 is resistant to wave motion and therefore remains substantially stationary.

The damping structure 92 comprises a second fixed member 96 and a damping member 97. The second fixed member 96 is a substantially rigid outer ring arranged substantially concentrically around the float 93 of the device 91, as described above. Energy, in the form of relative motion between the moveable member and the ring (which is resistant to wave motion), may be stored by the damping member and converted to electrical energy. FIG. Acidez estomacal y dolor de espalda . 20 shows a WEC device 201 comprising an upper member 203 and a lower member 204. The upper and lower members 203 and 204 are connected by means of a flexible tube 205. The upper and lower members move relative to one another when waves are incident on the device 201. This squeezes and relaxes the tube, pumping water therethrough. FIG. 14 shows a WEC device 141 comprising a damping structure 142 which protects the device from excessive heave forces, as well as combined pitch and surge forces.

Further energy capture enhancement arises from the additional sea states that can be accessed due to enhanced structural stability and resilience. In deeper of faster waters, the component is likely to snap due to excessive ratio change. This arrangement allows the counter forces exerted by the damping structure to be independently tuned in different directions. In a preferred embodiment, the fixed member is a substantially rigid ring adapted for arrangement substantially concentrically around the moveable member of the wave energy conversion device.
Under any of these conditions, a mooring system needs to be flexible enough to allow for the device to ride the changes without requiring a significant footprint. The “scope” of a mooring is the length of the mooring per unit of water depth. As above, the term “tailored” as used herein indicates that the material or materials used are in a shape, form or configuration that allows the stress-strain response to meet a specific desired performance profile. The strands may be formed from a plurality of different materials, such that the resultant composite material has the desired reversible non-linear stress-strain characteristics. The moveable member 3 is arranged such that it floats on or near the surface of the ocean. Such large waves can cause an excessive force to be exerted on the linkage or coupling between the moveable member and the fixed point.
