Wave Generators

The action of waves in impacting on the Barrage will, over the passing of decades, weaken the structure. Waves seek out crevices and widen them. Unimportant for the first one or two hundred years, at the point when the purpose of the barrage changes from being an energy generator to that of a sea wall, the structure of the wall may be failing.

It is therefore advantageous to diminish the impact of waves on the structure, and even more advantageous to convert this impact into usable energy.

There are a few patents already published which approach this application, namely JP61079869 , JP2003097409, JP61079869 and JP59090773, and another patent originating from Richard Lawson, the moderator of this site, a patent which is exactly matched to the need of the Barrage, may shortly be published.
