The Arctic is warming more rapidly than other latitudes, which can result in the release of additional greenhouse gasses, global sea level rise and increase in extreme weather events. Additionally, this causes the rapid decline of sea ice and an ice free Arctic might occur during the summer in the 2040s. The decreasing sea...

Thermal ice pressure is one of the eight ice loads to consider for the support structure design of bottom-fixed offshore wind turbines defined by international standard IEC 61400031. Temperature changes in ice drive its deformation and cause structures restricting expansion to experience loading. The effective coefficient of thermal expansion ...

Willems, T. (author)
The offshore wind industry is growing at high pace and is already one of the major renewable energy sources in Europe. To support this growth, costs must be further decreased, amongst others by efficiently designing the support structure of the offshore wind turbines (OWT). This requires accurate prediction of environmental loading such as...
