This video demonstrates managing and visualizing loads in offshore wind turbine modelling using software like OrcaWave, OrcaFlex, and Akselos. It explains the significance of importing and mapping hydrodynamic simulation loads, carrying out a global coupled dynamic analysis, and using software outputs to interpolate data on the Akselos mesh. The video also details how to perform multiple aero-elastic-servo-hydrodynamic (AESH) design load cases and reconstruct all loads using key parameters. Ultimately, viewers learn to visually inspect a wave passing through the FOWT substructure before conducting the final structural calculations.
This video is the second video in the series of four videos. Streamline your workflow and create more optimized floater designs for your offshore wind projects.
