Aryatech provide the design and analysis of offshore wind turbine structures subject to wave, wind, and mechanical loading. The analysis approach is capable of predicting both fatigue and extreme loads for the substructure and non-linear foundation.
Following are the analysis associated with Offshore Wind Turbine:-
The wave loading can be represented by either a time history or in spectral form. A random wave surface profile may be determined from a wave height spectral density function using multiple random seeds. The following wave spectra can be analysed:• Pierson-Moskowitz
Similarly, the wind loading can be input as time history or as a random loading developed from the following available spectra:• Von-Karman
Aryatech uses SACS along with GH Bladed and FAST software, accounting for the full coupling between wave, wind, and the wind-induced mechanical loading for a multi-modal response analysis.
Aryatech uses the Rainflow counting approach to predict the stress cycles resulting from a time history analysis?including the ability to sequentially accumulate the damage from multiple analysis simulations for numerous wind speeds and sea-states.
