The Ocean Grazer uses an underwater flexible reservoir to store potential energy. The bladder is filled with excess energy and when the bladder discharges, an electric turbine is turned. Little is known about the deformation behavior of a discharging bladder, so simulations were made. The current simulations and behavior analysis of the flexible bladder are oversimplified and are not yet considered to be fully optimized; for example, the hydrostatic pressure gradient is not captured by the current simulation. This project aims to optimize the simulations and analyze the deformation behavior during bladder discharge.
