Re: Tower top loads calculation

Dear Jason, thanks for your reply. I know that I could output these values by using Fast, but the objective is to estimate the effect of the rotor imbalance measured by accelerometer in the lifetime of a machine. I don' see why the aerodynamic forces are not contributed, is the sum of all the forces...

Tower top loads calculation

Hi everyone, I am using MLife for computing the lifetime of the tower top. For this I try to determine the tower top bearing loads. I have the acceleration measured on the three directions of the tower, so with the second law of Newton I calculate the shear force by multiplying the acceleration by t...

Error for writing statistics in Excel with MLIfe

Hi all, I am using MLife for the fatigue analysis of a tower wind turbine. I use the compiled version of Mlife because i don't have a Matlab license. But when I launch the MLife executable in the windows command with the first input file "Test01.mlif", the windows command display this erro...

Re: Input parameters for MCrunch

For the question 6) I found the solution, we just have to put the parameter "BinMeans" to false and keep the "DoLife" parameters to true. But now I have some results that I found unusual (for instance as LifeTime damage about 10^(-18) kN). Thus I wanted to know if it is possible ...

Re: Instruction for the Seismic fast version

Dear Jean-Pierre,


I can't see if you did it, but for the input file you need to add the extension file in the cmd.


Best regards,

Input parameters for MCrunch

Hi all, I am trying to calculate the lifetime of differents parts of the wind turbine. I am generating Data files via FAST. I tried to use the MLife tools but the program doesn't work (same issues as this topic : https://wind.nrel.gov/forum/wind/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1760&p=9264&hilit=mlif...
