Development of a free vortex wake method code for offshore floating wind turbines

T Sebastian, MA Lackner- Renewable Energy, October 2012

► Developed and tested a free vortex model code (WInDS) for future study of offshore floating wind turbine aerodynamics. ► Described the theory and implementation of the code. ► Validated using test cases, both analytical and experimental. ► WInDS demonstrated robust properties necessary for floating wind turbine simulations.
