Local Tower Loads output

Hello!!! I just want to ask for the clarification of the local tower load output. I output tower loads at the specific tower sections. TwHt1FLxt, TwHt1FLyt, TwHt1FLzt TwHt1MLxt, TwHt1MLyt, and TwHt1MLzt are requested to be output. However, I am doubtful about the definition of these parameters. Acco...

Mode shapes for Floating offshore wind turbine

Hello!!! I am working with floating offshore wind turbine modeling in FAST. However, I have a little confuse about the tower mode shapes. I use BModes to derive mode shapes. I would like to ask if we need to use a tower only mode shape or tower with a floater mode shape. Also, BModes does consider f...

Re: How to input platform motions time series and observe the responses.

Dear Jason Jonkman, Thank you so much for your quick reply. I understood that it is not possible in FAST/OpenFAST. However, I know that FAST has interface with Orcaflex. In Orcaflex, the motions can be specified as input. So, the tower load responses can be obtained from FAST output. However, as far...

How to input platform motions time series and observe the responses.

Hello, I am now working on Floating Offshore wind turbine modelling. I have to give FAST the platform motions as an input in order to see the responses caused by effect of floater motion. I have been using FAST for a while, but only see that FAST can give initial displacement(s). So, I would like to...

Re: User defined spectrum from routine UserWaveSpctrm in HydroDYn

Thank you so much for your reply. As you said This routine is called once per frequency at model initialization and receives the frequency (in rad/s) and direction (in degrees) of the wave component as input and returns the one-sided power-spectral density (PSD) (in m^2/(rad/s)) of the wave componen...

User defined spectrum from routine UserWaveSpctrm in HydroDYn

Hello!!! I am now modeling floating offshore wind turbine with semi-submersible platform by using FAST v.8. I have a question about the HydroDyn module. Since I have measured frequency wave spectrum , I am thinking about using "user-defined spectrum from routine UserWaveSpctrm option" in W...

Directional Wave Spreading

Hello!!! I have a question about directional wave spreading in HydroDyn. As far as I understand, HydroDyn can include directional wave spreading function using cos-2s model. A small s which is the directional wave spreading parameter is a function of frequency. However, I found that the input of s i...

Eigenvalue Analysis of OC3 Hywind

Hello!!! I am working with modelling of FOWT in FAST v.8. In ElastoDyn input, the mode shape of each tower modes is necessary to be inputted. I used BModes to derive those mode shapes. However, before I use it to model 2MW FOWT I checked the values of mode shapes used in ElastoDyn of OC3 Hywind proj...

Linearization with FAST v7, obtain mass matrix

Dear Jason, I would like to ask some quesions about how to get mass matrix from FAST v.7 linearization. I am calculating the tower top mass properties for the input in BModes. I did try to calculate it by hand, but I doubt that the tower top mass properties in BModes (ixx_tip, iyy_tip, izz_tip) are ...

Hello!! Now, I am studying about the BModes to generate the mode shapes for FAST. But my first task of the project is to find the modal mass of the fixed bottom wind turbine. I am not quite sure about how to output the modal mass from BModes. 1) Is it possible to do it? 2) If not, what is your sugge...
