Dear Dr. Jonkman,

Thank you so much. I did tried the first method; model the support structure including a tower in SubDyn and lumped RNA in ElastoDyn. After some tries, I got results. However, I suspicious the results due to the some random numbers I put to avoid errors. Most of them is for the geometrical information such as tower/blades model, OverHang, HubRad, which I do not have information but need to be input to make it run. So, could you please send me the unofficial manual also? I would like to have a review first to organize questions.

Best regards,
Bitna

Dear Dr. Jonkman,

Could you send me a copy of the newest FAST User’s Guide ? I read the version 6 released on August 12, 2005. I found what it said has some differences with Openfast input files. My email address is fxhzju@163.com.Thank you !

Best regards,

Xiangheng

Dear Xiangheng,

The user-documentation of FAST is undergoing a transition. The old FAST User's Guide from 2005 (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1d_-vRR ... sp=sharing) is mostly up to date with FAST v7. The primary updates to the documentation for FAST v8 (relative to FAST v7) are included in the FAST v8 ReadMe file (https://drive.google.com/file/d/17LDwMn ... sp=sharing). The primary updates to the documentation for OpenFAST (relative to FAST v8) are included on OpenFAST readthedocs (https://openfast.readthedocs.io/en/master/index.html). There have has also been documentation developed for most modules (InflowWind, AeroDyn, BeamDyn, HydroDyn, SubDyn, MoorDyn, MAP++, etc.); some of these (AeroDyn, BeamDyn) have been converted to readthedocs, while others are in the process of being converted.
