Calculation of design loads for offshore wind turbine (OWT) foundations is typically performed in a joint effort between wind turbine manufactures and foundation designers (FDs). Ideally, both parties would apply the same fully integrated design tool and model for that purpose. However, such solutions are rather limited as it would require exchanging confidential data and the need of sophisticated modelling capabilities for all subsystems of the OWT. In practice, this leads to an iterative and… CONTINUE READING
