Cost efficient design of monopile foundations for offshore wind turbines

Abstract

In the case of laterally loaded offshore piles, the addition of a circular bearing plate to the monopile at mudline, known as the hybrid monopile-footing foundation system, has been proven to increase the lateral load bearing capacity of the foundation system significantly. Previously this was studied in single gravity conditions and some preliminary tests were carried out in the centrifuge. This paper extends this investigations by studying the performance of the foundation system at 50g to and reports how different foundations and geometric components affect this increase.
