Design and Numerical Simulation of Timberwork Wind Power Generation Tower Model
To promote the enterprise of wind power generation, optimize the structure of wind power tower and improve the generating efficiency, a mini-type timberwork wind power generation tower model was designed and fabricated. Based on the tests by the leeward loading scheme, static characteristics and dynamic characteristics of the model were analyzed by numerical simulation. The results calculated through the finite element simulation were in a reasonable agreement with the test results. Additionally, considering the impact of different load levels, the bearing capacity, stiffness and the dynamic behavior can meet the requirements, which has significant reference value on practical application.
