The Coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic occurred simultaneously with the development of the present work and led to the closure of all testing facilities in the faculty where this work was originally set to take place: Instituto Superior Técnico, located in Lisbon, Portugal. The dissertation’s planning initially predicted the experimental testing of an oscillating-water-column wave energy converter model in the faculty’s wave tank. Due to its closure, the dissertation’s planning had to be altered: the chosen alternative was to develop a project in the same scientific field, but focused on numerical simulations. The initially planned experiments are described in annex A.
