CURSUS FOUNDATIONS FOR OFFSHORE WIND TURBINES
02/11/2020 @ 08:00 - 03/11/2020 @ 17:00
Acquire in-depth geotechnical knowledge relevant optimisation of foundation systems during this training course. This practical twoday training course is in cooperation with PAOTM.
Optimise foundation systems: from design to implementation
The offshore wind sector is skyrocketing worldwide, with a steady trend towards installations in deeper waters and harsher environments. This course addresses one of the main challenges posed by such a trend: the optimisation of foundation systems.
The course covers geotechnical knowledge relevant to the design of wind turbine foundations, with focus on large-diameter monopiles. Core contents include soil behaviour and site characterisation, monopile installation and performance during operations (lateral capacity, stiffness, cyclic response, scour protection).
Geotechnical concepts and design approaches are linked to the engineering of wind turbine structures, with an open window on the latest R&D developments made in Delft (Delft University of Technology and Deltares). Each day includes practical sessions and offers room for lively interaction between lecturers and attendees.
