Study on the Bearing Mechanism of Bucket Foundation for Offshore-Wind Turbine in Soft Clay
Based on numerical platform of large-scale finite element software, this paper investigates the function mechanisms of vertical load, horizontal load, and bending moment load of soft-clay-base bucket foundation. Then the corresponding load bearing characteristics of each load type of soft-clay-base bucket foundation are determined.
