Paper Title:
Structural Analysis of Conical Bottom-Supported Offshore Wind Turbine Foundation
  Abstract

In this paper, a kind of conical bottom-supported offshore wind turbine foundation was developed. The finite element model was built in SESAM and the structure was analyzed in operating condition and survival condition. The result shows that both the bearing platform and the conical bottom can satisfy the requirement of displacement and strength. The new kind of platform can be applied in shallow sea and offshore, easy to tow, and has low cost, which is helpful to offshore wind power exploitation.
