Abstract

The paper presents the analysis of foundations conditions under static and seismic loads for a wind farm located in the Eastern part of Romania. From lithological point of view, the location is characterized by a soft cohesive strata alternation over 40m deep. Some design considerations for obtaining the most economical foundation options are discussed. By taking into account the static and seismic conditions, the soil – structure interaction (S.S.I.) is also revealed together with conclusions on the aeolian towers’ foundations solutions.

Foundations Conditions Study for Aeolian Power Units on Soft Soils under Static and Seismic Loads. Case Study

Chicago, Illinois

Some design considerations for obtaining the most economical foundation options are discussed.
