Wind Turbine Structure Design and Analysis Solution

Wind turbines are a growing aspect of our renewable energy infrastructure. The design and placement of wind turbine support structures must accommodate various conditions. These include the location, terrain, wind, and wave forces for a range of installations either on land or at sea. By combining advanced 3D structural design and modeling with finite element stress, you can optimize all aspects of wind turbine structure platform engineering and design. You can also apply additional analyses for pile structure and fatigue conditions.

Capabilities
  • Analyze wind turbine fatique

    • ​Design and analyze wind turbine fatigue for a range of loading conditions for dynamic turbine systems. Validate fatigue stress ranges and dynamic response through time history simulations. Improve the overall design integrity for wind turbine designs and support structures.
  • Analyze wind turbine loading

    • ​Analyze and calculate wind turbine loading dynamically on support structures for a range of operating conditions and load cases. Perform dynamic, deterministic, time history, or spectral analysis. Improve the overall engineering and design for wind turbine support structures.
  • Design and analyze pile structures

    • ​Produce high-quality, high-integrity offshore pile structures. Perform non-linear soil, pile, and structure interaction analysis of fixed offshore structural models with multiple fixed supports.
  • Perform wind turbine collapse analysis

    • Perform wind turbine collapse analysis including non-linear foundation and plastic foundation analysis. Utilize interactive viewing of collapse results to validate your design. Produce collapse analysis reports and plots.
