Offshore wind has achieved many milestones considering this relatively new and emerging industry. Its huge advancement is mostly driven by lowering the overall project cost and renewable energy targets which are set by the EU. One of the potential cost savers can be found in the foundation structure design in which the monopiles are the most...

The API RP 2GEO (2011) p-y method is an industry standard approach to predict the lateral pile behaviour of slender oil platform piles with length (L) over diameter (D) ratios > 10. However, offshore wind turbines are founded on large diameter monopiles with an L/D ratio < 8, which are rather rigid piles. There are concerns about the...

Wind turbines are nowadays the main means for producing renewable energy in Northern and Western Europe, and therefore research is conducted to secure their efficiency. One of the critical aspects of the windfarms is the foundation type, as it can define the functionality and the cost of each turbine. Monopiles have prevailed as the most...
