  author={Daniel Todd Griffith and Nathanael Yoder and Brian R. Resor and Jonathan R. White and Joshua A. Paquette},
Operations and maintenance costs for offshore wind plants are expected to be significantly higher than the current costs for onshore plants. One way in which these costs may be able to be reduced is through the use of a structural health and prognostic management system as part of a condition based maintenance paradigm with smart load management. To facilitate the creation of such a system a multiscale modeling approach has been developed to identify how the underlying physics of the system are… CONTINUE READING
