On this R-data statistics page, you will find information about the waves data set which pertains to Electricity from Wave Power at Sea . The waves data set is found in the HSAUR R package. You can load the waves data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("waves"). This will load the data into a variable called waves. If R says the waves data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("HSAUR") and then attempt to reload the data. If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the waves R data set. The size of this file is about 200 bytes.
Electricity from Wave Power at Sea
Measurements of root mean square bending moment by two different mooring methods.
A data frame with 18 observations on the following 2 variables.
Root mean square bending moment in Newton metres, mooring method 1
Root mean square bending moment in Newton metres, mooring method 2
In a design study for a device to generate electricity from wave power at sea, experiments were carried out on scale models in a wave tank to establish how the choice of mooring method for the system affected the bending stress produced in part of the device. The wave tank could simulate a wide range of sea states and the model system was subjected to the same sample of sea states with each of two mooring methods, one of which was considerably cheaper than the other. The question of interest is whether bending stress differs for the two mooring methods.
