Dynamic Analysis of Innovative Hybrid Wind Mill Tower with Soil Structure Interaction

Hemal J. Shah and Atul K. Desai
Abstract—The wind mill towers are constructed using monopoles or lattice type tower. As the height of tower increases it gives more power but it becomes uneconomical, So in this research work innovative hybrid wind mill tower such as combination of monopole and lattice tower is analyzed using FEM software. When the tall structures are constructed on soft soil it becomes dynamically sensitive so three types of soil such as hard, medium and soft are also considered and the frequencies of innovative hybrid tower are studied for different types of soil. From study it is revealed that the innovative hybrid tower will reduce resonance condition considering soil structure interaction.

Index Terms—Wind mill tower, dynamic analysis, Resonance conditions, soil structure interaction.
