Extreme load predictions for floating offshore wind turbines

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review

Abstract

An effective stochastic procedure for extreme value predictions related to wave and wind induced stochastic loads is applied to a tension-leg concept for floating offshore wind turbines. The method is based on the First Order Reliability Method (FORM) and as the procedure makes use of only short time-domain simulations all kinds of non-linearities can be included. The procedure has been used previously for wave induced loads and is in this note extended to combined wave and wind loads.
