The WEC Design Response Toolbox (WDRT) was developed by Sandia National Laboratories and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to provide extreme response and fatigue analysis tools, specifically for design analysis of ocean structures such as wave energy converters (WECs). The WDRT contains a number of code modules to assist in the major processes of WEC survival design analysis: environmental characterization - metocean environmental analysis and statistics; short term extremes - analysis of short-term (sea-state specific) extreme responses; long term extremes - analysis of long-term (design life) extreme responses; fatigue - fatigue analysis; most-likely extreme response (MLER) - focused-wave construction for efficient high-fidelity modeling.
