The costs of offshore wind are currently, significantly higher than onshore wind. A significant contributor to this higher cost is the cost of the foundations for the turbines. Hence a rational and optimized design of foundation for wind turbines is essential to reduce the overall cost. This course gives a detailed knowledge about the design and analysis of mono pile, Suction piles, and jacket structure foundations. This course also includes the soil pile interaction and the dynamic responses. The course will include both ultimate and fatigue limit state check for the design of these types of foundations. The uncertainties of various design variables will also be discussed in these lectures. Lastly a reliability based design of suction pile will be covered.
The course will give a brief overview Basic Soil Mechanics, Pile foundation, Pile Installation, Pile Testing, Special Foundations
