Nonlinear Assessment and Stochastic Dynamics of Offshore Wind

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


Offshore wind turbines have seen rapid growth in the past decade with development and advancement in science, technology and engineering, which is driven by research regarding the design of new concepts/structures, numerical modelling tools and simulation methods. Offshore wind structures are subjected to complicated loads and load effects, which demand comprehensive numerical modelling representation of the physics. Important factors affecting the design, functionality, structural integrity and performance of offshore structures include – but are not limited to – fluid-structure interaction, controller actions, intense dynamic effects, non-linear loadings, extreme and harsh weather conditions, and impact pressure loads. There is interdependence between loads, load-effects and structural strength. To enable further growth of reliable offshore wind technologies in the coming years, more advanced and accurate numerical tools and nonlinear modelling are needed to handle the design of new concepts. In this lecture, an introduction to the aforementioned points with examples from carried out research will be presented.
