Impact of Hurricane Wind/Wave Misalignment on the Analyses of Fixed-Bottom Jacket Type Offshore Wind Turbine
(Virginia Tech, 2015-06)
A high risk of hurricane is threatening the development of offshore wind energy in the east coast of the United States. Hurricane loads on an offshore wind turbine, namely wind and waves, not only exert large demands but ...
Convergence of Extreme Loads for Offshore Wind Turbine Support Structures
(Virginia Tech, 2015-06-11)
Extreme loads of wind turbines are historically difficult to predict through simulation due to uncertainty in input conditions as well as in the simulation models. In addition, many long time series must be simulated for ...
The Role of Damping in Offshore Wind Turbine Dynamics
(Virginia Tech, 2015-06-08)
The stochastic environmental loading present in potential offshore wind farm locations leads to high costs for the turbine's support structure. As a result, it is important to determine the contribution each damping source ...
