Investigation and implementation of turbulent wind in a specialized software tool for offshore wind turbines
This thesis presents the theoretical models and standards behind the generation of turbu-
lence in aeroelastic software. The required knowledge behind offshore wind have been
investigated and the necessary changes from onshore wind generation are described. An
integration between a turbulent wind generator Turbsim and an aeroelastic software, Ashes
are implemented, tested and documented. The integration was focused on usability and
the application of standards. A comparison with other tools for turbulent wind in the OC4
report was compared with the result produced with Turbsim. Alternatives to the imple-
mented turbulent wind generator was investigated and described.
