Learn about geotechnical concepts and relevant design approaches in the engineering of wind turbine foundations.


Engineering and soil-structure considerations of monopile foundations

The offshore wind sector is booming worldwide, with a steady trend towards installations in deeper waters and harsher environments. This course addresses one of the main challenges posed by such a trend: the optimisation of foundation systems.


The course covers geotechnical knowledge relevant to the design of wind turbine foundations, with an emphasis on large diameter monopiles. The core content of the course includes soil behavior and characterization, monopile installation and performance during operations (lateral capacity, stiffness, cyclic response, erosion protection).


Geotechnical concepts and design approaches are linked to the engineering of wind turbine structures, with an open view of the latest Delft R&D developments. The course includes practical sessions and makes room for stimulating interaction between teachers and attendees.


Optimise foundation systems: from design to implementation

Course participants will have a chance to learn about:


  • different foundation types for offshore wind turbines;
  • soil characterisation procedures;
  • engineering methods for monopile installation and design;
  • monopile-environment interaction, including issues related to seabed scour and cyclic loading conditions;
  • offshore operations for wind farm construction, with emphasis on technical challenges in real-world projects;
  • recent advances in offshore geotechnical research.


Intended for

This course is meant for a wide range of professionals involved in the design, construction and management of offshore wind farms. Participants with a background in engineering – not limited to geotechnical – will make the most of this course in which fundamental understanding and practical application are equally prioritised.


This course will be presented in English.


In cooperation with DOB-Academy.
