Investigation and implementation of turbulent wind in a specialized software tool for offshore wind turbines
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis presents the theoretical models and standards behind the generation of turbu-lence in aeroelastic software. The required knowledge behind offshore wind have beeninvestigated and the necessary changes from onshore wind generation are described. Anintegration between a turbulent wind generator Turbsim and an aeroelastic software, Ashesare implemented, tested and documented. The integration was focused on usability andthe application of standards. A comparison with other tools for turbulent wind in the OC4report was compared with the result produced with Turbsim. Alternatives to the imple-mented turbulent wind generator was investigated and described.
