Hello every one, i'm a student and im about designing an offshore wind turbine structure for my project using SACS software coupled with FAST, i used a steel jacket model as a support structure and i need some examples showing how to design the transition piece connecting the jacket to the tower ,this is my email '' firstname.lastname@example.org'' please i need some samples and thank you very much
Unlike standard oil&gas jackets, the wind turbine foundations are designed with varieties. Different designers may use different type of transitions to connect foundation and tower so there is no standard answer for this. I would suggest you to search information on existing offshore wind projects using jacket type foundation to see what type of connection they are using. Also I can send you some pictures of existing projects if you need.
I am aslo looking to learn how to design the transition pieces. Could you please sent me the documents above (email@example.com) ?
Thank you in advance.
