Abstract

Offshore wind turbines (OWTs) are new types of structures with no track record of long-term performance. This chapter discusses the challenges in the design of OWTs with a focus on the Chinese waters. The main loads acting on a wind turbine are discussed together with the specific case of Chinese waters where in some location typhoon/cyclone and earthquake governs. The relatively soft and complex multilayering ground conditions in the Chinese water are also discussed. The challenges associated with dynamic soil structure interaction are also highlighted.
