Abstract
The purpose of this paper is to investigate the applicability of a 3D radia tion-diffraction boundary element code based in the linear wave theory to s horeline bottom-standing OWC wave power plants, taking into account the bat hymetry and topography of the site. The Azores European Pilot plant on the Island of Pico is used as a test case. Results to be presented include the effect of the bathymetry and topography on the performance of the Pico plan t, the comparison with laboratory results, and the influence of the accurac y in the evaluation of the radiation impulse function on the overall perfor mance of the Pico plant.
