Aerodynamic and Hydrodynamic Study of Offshore Wind Turbine Foundation

A.R. Kambekar, Shubham R. Giri


Wind is an excellent source of renewable energy As the requirement of energy is increasing day by day thenon-renewable energy sources get deficient in fulfillingthe requirement, offshore windmills are the need to be focused towards the sustainable development. This study focuses on investigating the fixed jacket type offshore structure considering environmental loadings such as aerodynamic loading considered in all direction and hydrodynamic loading causes due to wave which act as an extreme effect on structure in also considering seismic loading for analysis and design offshore wind turbine structure situated at a water depth of 16 m. Both structures were analyzed for deformation, stress in member and forces generated at the base of the structure result shows that 14m footprint jacket is well efficient to take comparatively more axial compression load.
