Foundation design for offshore wind turbines in UK
foundation design with detailed calculations and analysis using Ansys for the design proposal that the calculation has been made. Foundation type has to chosen by the writer that will benefit him to get the perfect design based on British standards. Preferable the foundation design to be for water depth(30-50m or 50-100m).
Before the design is made the writer have to make a research on the different type of foundations and than decide which type of foundation he could make improvements based on dimensions , or materials so as the design that he will do can benefit in aspects of cost, efficiency, environmental impact, maintenance, life age of the structure etc. , which is very important part of my project as this is my originality of the project.
Also the writer needs to compare and contrast the design he will improve with the already existing one.
It is very important to bare in mind that the project is based on the UK, hence I have to provide which construction side its suitable for my design in the UK that is taking place, so the place of the project has to be determined.
I need a sketch of the proposal foundation design with densions and loads on the sketch, explaining and making clear to the reader my foundation type and its dimensions and the material which will be construct of and why that material.
I want this project to be written and done in a very good analysed way , providing all references and files for the Ansys.
In the end I need discussions and conclusions of the foundation design, enriched with examples and discussions, and raising questions for example what could be future improvements that my final foundation design can take in the future.
Also all geotechnical considerations and wave theory and all loads applied on this foundation have to be analysed and discussed.
I wish my writer to have structural and geotechnical engineering skills.
In this report all the references has to be provided. Grpahs + images+ tables and sketches must be included in this report.
I also can provide to the writer my literature review.

design foundations for offshore wind turbines for water depths 30-50m or 50-100m in the UK.
First step compare existing foundations and pick one to design it but to be improved from the one that they use.
analyse the type of foundation and calculate the new one. provide sketches, diagrams, and ANALYSIS FOR THE NEW PROPOSAL FOUNDATION HAS TO BE IN ANSYS FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS.
DISCUSS AND SUGGEST IMPROVEMENTS ON THE NEW FOUNDATION TYPE.
RAISE QUESTIONS AND DEBATE ABOUT THE BENEFITS OF THE NEW FOUNDATION TYPE.
MUST BE DONE GEOTECHNICAL ANALYSIS ON THE WATER CONDITIONS WAVE THEORY SOIL CONDITIONS WHICH HAS TO BE WELL EXPLANIED PROVIDING DATA, GRAPHS PICTURES AND EXAMPLE (FOR ONE CONSTRUCTION OFFSHORE SITE IN THE UK). COST ESTIMATION AND MEINTENANCE HAS TO BE DONE.
FULLY REFERENCED AND ALL THE FILES HAS TO BE ATTACHED FOR THE ANALYSIS SOFTWARE (ANSYS) THAT WILL BE USED IN THIS REOPRT.
I WILL BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO PROVIDE TO THE WRITER MY LITERATURE REVIEW.
