New design methods for offshore wind monopiles to create cost savings for industry

Research papers on design methods for offshore wind power monopile foundations in clay and sand seabed conditions, now available Open Access from the Géotechnique journal, detail new, industry-specific guidance to model the interactions between monopiles and the soil.

Successful field-testing validation of these bespoke methods suggests that previous approaches under-estimate the support that the seabed soil provides to the foundation, resulting in over-conservative design calculations for monopiles.  Estimates suggest that these more accurate methods have the potential to reduce steel requirements for foundations by up to 30 percent for some design conditions, realising significant cost savings. The new design methods are the outputs of the ... More: Official Press Release Carbon Trust
