Monopiles are typically the preferred foundation option for offshore wind turbine support structures in shallow coastal waters. Current design procedures for monopile foundations, routinely employing a simplified analysis known as the ‘p-y’ method, were originally devised for slender piles employed in offshore oil & gas industry. There is evidence highlighting the shortcomings of the method when being extended to offshore wind turbine monopiles that typically come with larger diameter and lower length-over-diameter ratio.

PLAXIS Monopile Designer was the first commercial application based on PISA design concept.  With novel design methodology, significant reduction in pile length can be achieved, according to experts. The robust and theoretically sound computational procedures are now encapsulated in a logical and easy-to-use shell.

With the new SACS-PLAXIS Monopile Designer interoperability, soil reactions obtained from PLAXIS Monopile Designer (via a full 3D numerical approach, or rule-based approach PISA design method) can be converted into a Pile Input file, for direct use in SACS

​In this webinar, we will showcase: 

  • Rule-based design workflow
  • Numerical-based design workflow in conjunction with PLAXIS 3D
  • Exporting nonlinear soil reactions for further analysis in SACS
