Paper presented at the SNAME 26th Offshore Symposium, April 6–7, 2021
Paper Number: SNAME-TOS-2021-17
... When a wind turbine installation jack-up performs a heavy lifting operation with the crane it affects the loads on the foundation. For these units the crane typically encircles a leg or is positioned close to it. Consequently, that leg attracts most of the loads due to crane operations. For each...
