Abstract: Current design methodology for cyclically, laterally loaded monopile foundations uses the p-y method to calculate deflections. The p-y method, which is based on a few full-scale tests of long, slender piles subjected to fewer than 200 cycles of loading, is not applicable to wind turbine foundations because they are subjected to as many as 107 cycles of loading and are not long, slender s... read more
