This study presents some results on the peak response assessment of a 5-MW, land-based Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines (HAWTs) support structure, under the combined effects of wind and seismic loads. Using a decoupled approach, simulations of the wind and seismic loads effects are performed separately applying a specific model to define the aerodynamic damping and then joined. Then, the probabilistic assessment of the multi-hazard peak response parameters was developed from Monte Carlo simulations of the tower structure subjected to different wind and seismic loads scenarios.

Abstract

This study presents some results on the peak response assessment of a 5-MW, land-based Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines (HAWTs) support structure, under the combined effects of wind and seismic loads. Using a decoupled approach, simulations of the wind and seismic loads effects are performed separately applying a specific model to define the aerodynamic damping and then joined. Then, the probabilistic assessment of the multi-hazard peak response parameters was developed from Monte Carlo simulations of the tower structure subjected to different wind and seismic loads scenarios.
