Structural monitoring of a wind turbine steel tower – Part II: monitoring results
C. Rebelo, M. Veljkovic, R. Matos and L. Simoes da Silva

 
Abstract
    This paper presents results from the structural monitoring of a steel wind tower characterized and presented in Part I of the paper. Monitoring period corresponds to about fifteen months of measurements. Results presented refer to stress distribution on shell and in bolts at different heights, stress fatigue spectra, section forces along height evaluated from the stress measurements and comparison with design forces, dynamic response in terms of accelerations, stresses, deflections and rotations.
 
Key Words
