Fibre Taut

Fibre Taut – Fibre Ropes for Taut Mooring Lines for Marine Energy Converters The objective of the project is to obtain knowledge of the applicability of fibre ropes in Marine Energy Converters (MEC), both in laboratory and sea conditions. To achieve this, a series of project development objectives are presented below: Perform tests of the fibre ropes in two environments, one in real, open water conditions and other in a control environment in the laboratory. Determine strength limits and the stiffness and damping properties of fibre ropes with cycling at different loads. Develop a base line numerical model of the mooring... Read More
