Static-dynamic Tests of Bearing Capacity of Wind Turbine Piles
Keywords:pile, testing, bearing capacity
The paper presents the static load tests (SLT) and dynamic load tests (DLT) of the piles and numerical analyses of piles in interaction with the soil of wind turbines. Pile tests were conducted using the equipment with counter-weights for SLT and an autonomous system for the control of DLT of the piles. Numerical DLT analyses were performed by the signal matching method. Tests proved that the design resistance of piles of SLT and mobilized static resistance of DLT are higher than the design forces obtained from the design of the wind turbine foundations. Also, the need to develop a plan for testing the bearing capacity of piles, concerning large and significant buildings was emphasized.
