Numerical Analysis of High-Rise Steel Structure with Wind Turbines under Earthquake Action
The utilization of new energy sources, like wind power, has become more and more popular as the global energy crisis escalated. Preliminary mechanical analysis was done to verify the feasibility of a new type of building structure, integrated high-rise steel structure with vertical axis wind turbines. Time history analysis under the action of EI-Centro earthquake wave and Wenchuan earthquake wave were carried out on the model with wind turbines and the other one without. The seismic behavior of this new structure was analyzed.
