Support structures of offshore wind turbines

Support structures of offshore wind turbines

The students have advanced knowlegde of design and calculation methods for dimensioning of support structures for offshore wind turbines (OWT). Here, special topics are loads induced by the seastate, fatigue design applying local concepts, constructive details at structural connections, monitoring of vibrations and concepts for reduction of vibrations. The essential methodologies for dimensioning and structural design of support structures for OWTs with different substructures (such as monopiles, jackets, tripods, tripiles or gravity-based fundations) are adressed. Additionally, concepts for installation and logistics are discussed related to the structural design. The students are familiar with relevant standards and with software for the structural design.
