Impacts from highly nonlinear waves on walls and substructures of wind turbines

Presented by: 
H Bredmose Danmarks Tekniske Universitet
Tuesday 29th July 2014 - 16:30 to 17:30
INI Seminar Room 2
The talk links together the paper of mine from 2010 on the flip-through impact and recent research on ringing loads on monopile substructures caused by near-breaking and breaking waves. We have made experiments in a collaborative project with the Danish Hydraulics Institute and computations with a free-surface Navier-Stokes solver coupled to a potential flow model of the outer wave field.
