Parallel approaches for monopile beam modelling




Greater Copenhagen area

Over the last decade there has been an explosive development in wind turbine designs leading to a strong demand for computationally efficient mathematical models. This includes using high performance computational (HPC) tools. However, many of the models used have a relatively small number of degrees of freedom, and the gain in effectiveness in using HPC may be limited. This project will focus on the modelling of a monopile embedded in the seabed and to evaluate the potential gains of using a parallel methodology.

Technical University of Denmark

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted – the father of electromagnetism – who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.

Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.
