Soil-structure-drive train interaction (BBTI)

Project objective

The project intends to quantify the impact of the soil-structure-drive train interaction and will provide recommendations for the design of wind turbines and will give rise to the loading conditions for full size nacelle test rigs.

Expected outcome

The project’s results will lead to an optimal design of the wind turbine to increase fatigue and abrasion behavior and thus down time and maintenance work is minimized.
