Wind turbines are the largest rotating machines on the planet, operating in some of the most remote and hostile areas. During a lifespan of several decades, they have to withstand storms, waves, and gusts (and preferably produce electricity in the process). Yet, designers cannot make them too strong. Every additional kilogram of mass has to be...

An important problem that arises during the design of wind turbines is estimating extreme loads with sufficient accuracy. This is especially difficult during iterative design phases when computational resources are scarce. Over the years, many methods have been proposed to extrapolate extreme load distributions from relatively short time series...

Risk assessment is a requirement for robustness design of high consequence class structures, yet very little guidance is offered in practice for performing this type of assessment. This paper demonstrates the application of the probabilistic risk assessment framework arising from COST Action TU0601 to multi-storey buildings subject to extr eme...

Part I: The computer program INTRA models the collapse behavior of trusswork offshore structures with the aid of two types of elements: 'Beam-column' elements, designed to simulate bending dominated failure of structural members, and 'strut' elements, that can represent normal force dominated failure. The behavior of both types of INTRA elements...
