Abstract

We report on work in progress that is seeking to define hurricane load cases for the design of offshore wind turbines. A software tool, CHAISE (Coupled Hydro-Aerodynamic Interface for Storm Environments), is being developed that will integrate a fully coupled atmospheric-wave-ocean model, referred to as the University of Miami Coupled Model (UMCM), with downscaling using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) tools and, ultimately, with turbine aeroelastic loads computation. The goal is to simulate turbine rotor, tower, and support structure loads on an offshore wind turbine throughout the evolution of a hurricane. We present various elements of this end-to-end simulation capability that is under development.
