Current trends and hot topics of scientific research for Offshore Wind Energy
The presentation includes a current review of world literature, covering issues related to the design, implementation and operation of foundations for offshore wind energy facilities. Technical solutions (technologies) under current development worldwide are shown. Information on the applied and developed research methods has also been compiled, divided into model tests on a laboratory scale, tests on real world objects, and concepts of numerical modeling with the use of leading computer programs dedicated to geotechnical issues. The presented review is intended by the Author to facilitate current discussions between Institutions, Companies and Research Offices regarding the scope of possible support from the Universities for planned and implemented investment projects in the field of Offshore Wind Energy.
