Impacts from focused wave groups on monopiles PDF Print E-mail
Monopile foundations for offshore wind turbines are subject to the harsh environment at sea. In this project extreme wave impacts are modelled in terms of focused wave groups. Wave components from a JONSWAP spectrum are linearly superimposed and matched in phase to hit the structure just at the time of breaking. The modelling is done with the OpenFOAM CFD solver.
