Designers of floating wind turbines use the simulation model 3DFloat, developed by IFE

An industrial project sponsored by the Research Council of Norway and Statoil, will in November perform a wave tank test of a new design for offshore floating wind turbine, the OO Star Wind Floater

The numerical modeling tool 3DFloat is developed by IFE. Senior Scientist Tor Anders Nygaard is project manager. The computer program has parameters for waves, wind, currents and turbulence and computes the dynamic behavior of offshore wind turbines. In this way, different designs can be evaluated under different environmental conditions.

Quality
The company Dr.techn. Olav Olsen, a large Norwegian consulting engineering firm in structural engineering who also work extensively internationally, is starting to use 3DFloat in connection with new designs of floating wind turbines.
