Application of a numerical-based soil reaction curve method for design of laterally loaded monopiles

Abstract:

Monopiles are the major current foundation type for offshore wind turbine foundations. The geotechnical design of monopiles usually employs conventional ‘p-y’ approaches, originally developed for the design of long slender piles for the oil and gas industry. It has been recognised, however, that the p-y approaches may not be entirely appropriate when applied to the design of monopiles for offshore wind turbines. Evidence from full scale field measurements indicates that they can u...
