Static Pushover Analysis

Postby Dhaneesh.Machavarapu » Sun Jun 21, 2020 12:33 am


In FAST, Is it possible to conduct Static pushover analysis to check the nonlinear behavior of monopile supported offshore wind turbine? I want to check the linear & nonlinear deformation at the tower top.

Thank you.

Dear Dhaneesh,

Not directly, but I'm sure this would be possible with a small change to the source code, e.g, by introducing a slowly increasing force applied to the tower top.
