Analysis of nacelle main structure
For the certification of a new main structure in the nacelle, our costumer needed a full extreme and fatigue analyses. As the analysis of the main structure is highly dependent on the backup stiffness of the adjacent components, a large amount of components in the nacelle and tower top is included in the analysis. The model included nonlinear contacts, bolt connection, nonlinear springs for representation of bearings etc.
