Evaluation of wind turbine towers under the simultaneous application of seismic, operation and wind loads
Wind turbines are widely recognized as a renewable energy resource and as such, their safety and reliability must be ensured. Many studies have been completed on the blade rotor and nacelle components of wind turbines under wind and operation loads. While several studies have focused on idealized wind turbine models, significant advancements on the global and local performance of these models under seismic loads in combination with other loads has been lacking. A study on the evaluation and performance of realistic wind turbine models under wind, operation and seismic loads is proposed and ...
