Support structures for wind turbines
|Publication Date:||1 July 2018|
This DNV GL standard for wind turbine support structures offers pragmatic design approaches and can for example be used for design of steel and concrete towers, gravity-based concrete foundations, together with steel foundations such as monopile foundations, jacket structure foundations and suction buckets foundations.
This standard gives requirements for the following:
- design principles
- selection of material and extent of inspection
- selection of design loads and load combinations
- load effect analyses
- structural design
- corrosion protection
- geotechnical design
- grouted connections for offshore support structures
- scour protection for offshore support structures.
The standard also contains requirements for materials, execution, operations and maintenance (O&M) related to the design. This is done by inclusion of for example references to material and execution standards.
