Abstract

In this paper new improvements are presented on development of CFD model for simulation of a floating offshore wind turbine (FOWT) platform in large waves and strong winds. The CFD model is a Cartesian grid method for multi-phase free surface flows which contains a CIP based free surface flow solver, a wind turbine model and a mooring line model. A comparison computation against an experiment with a semi-submersible type FOWT model has been performed for validation of the CFD model. Reasonably good agreement between the numerical simulation and the experiment has been obtained on floating body motions in large waves.
