There is presently a lack of knowledge of scour progression for complex offshore foundation structures, such as Tripod foundations for offshore wind turbines. Typically, scour is investigated in physical model tests. As an extension, parts of the investigations could be carried out by using numerical methods; however, such numerical methods require that all relevant processes leading to scour are captured well by the model. The general possibility for conducting such numerical simulations is… CONTINUE READING
