Wind tower design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Has anybody done any wind tower design work ?  I am doing some preliminary work on a concrete tower design, and I am thinking about the dynamic behaviour
and the effect of the passage of the blade when it passes in front of the tower.  Does anyone have any information or ideas on this ?

The Germans and the Japanese have actually built some concrete towers already.  Apparently steel towers are at about their height limit now, and the way to greater efficiency and bigger turbines leads to higher towers, which will probably be in concrete.
