This article compares different approaches to determine the design forces and moments for the ulti-
mate limit state for monopile structures for offshore wind turbines. The principles of the different
approaches are explained. Four different methods, i.e. model test, volume of fluid method, boundary
element method and the classical Morison approach are compared to each other.
