A simplified method for coupled analysis of floating offshore wind turbines

M Karimirad T Moan – Marine Structures, July 2012

► Simplified approach for dynamic response analysis of floating wind turbines. ► Idea is to minimize the computational time while maintaining acceptable accuracy. ► Method is validated against a comprehensive aero-hydro-servo-elastic approach. ► The codes agree for the wave-only cases and for the wave- and wind-induced cases. ► Two floating wind turbines are considered to perform sensitivity study.
