Re: AeroDyn and FAST

[size=100]Dear All, I am trying to obtain the hydrodynamic coefficients (added mass, radiation damping), first order wave excitation force (magnitude and the phase angle) of MIT/NREL TLP by using NEMOH panel method solver. I am attaching my results where I compared : - NEMOH solution (Blue data ser...

Re: Free decay analysis and natural frequency

Dear All & Dear Jason, Description: I would like to expand the discussion to MIT NREL TLP analysis with MoorDyn. In the FAST directory, I can't see the MoorDyn code. Has anyone tried on that before? I understand that MoorDyn is based on a lumped-mass approach which is capable of modelling the mo...

Re: Free decay analysis and natural frequency

Dear Jason & Dear All, 1) Is there any reference value for the damping ratio values from free decay analysis of MIT NREL TLP? I've checked Matha (2009) but I can not see. 2) I am checking the hydrodynamic solution method (potential flow or strip theory or both) of the MIT/NREL TLP from the "...

Re: Tower Eigenfrequencies of NREL 5MW Turbine

Dear Jason & Dear All, I am working on the MIT NREL TLP model, which is readily available in Model #23 of FAST. As we know that pitch response and tower bending response of the structure is coupled. I want to obtain the pure pitch frequency of the structure. To get that, I switch TwFADOF1, TwFAD...

Re: fore-aft and side-to-side accelerations at mid-tower

Dear Mustafa, Yes, you can use ElastoDyn outputs TwHt*TDxt, TwHt*TDyt, and TwHt*TDzt to get the xt, yt, and zt displacements, respectively, at up to 9 output nodes along the tower, where * is between 1 and 9. Best regards, Dear Jason, Thanks a lot for your time and help... Sincerely, Mustafa Vardar...

Instead of providing a unit impulse, you can set an initial tower-top displacement (in the ElastoDyn module) to conduct a free-decay test of the tower oscillation.

Dear Jason,

Thanks a lot for your time and help...

Re: fore-aft and side-to-side accelerations at mid-tower

Dear Jason, I am trying to see the horizontal displacements along the z-axis. "TTDspFA" parameter from ElastoDyn gives the displacement of the tower top, in the fore aft direction. I am aware that it is possible to get the bending moments along the tower by specifying node numbers to "...

Re: Natural Frequencies with FAST v8

Dear Jason,

In addition to the platform natural frequencies, is there a way to conduct a free decay test on tower oscillations? Such as an application of unit impulse to the tower?

Sincerely,

Re: MIT/NREL TLP without wind

Dear Jason, Thanks for your help. I execute the FAST code in MATLAB by simply running: command_3=('FAST_x64 Test23.fst') [status,cmdout] = system(command_3) Once the FAST terminates normally, I immediately call the ReadFASTbinary function: r=ReadFASTbinary('Test23.outb') Sorry for taking your time. ...

Re: MIT/NREL TLP without wind

Dear Jason, Thanks for sharing your time. The problem is solved after switching WaveDirMod from 1 to 0. It is stated that WaveDirMod is only used when WaveMod=2,3, or 4. I didn't switch it off, continued with the default switch, while changing WaveMod from "2" to "1". And didn't ...

Dear Jason, Thanks for your help and suggestions. I have checked all the settings in the input files and the fst file (Test23). Since I'm using the default settings, everything looks ok. I've also checked the HyrdoDyn Manual regarding on regular wave analysis. Unfortunately, I'm getting a zero respo...
