Loads detrmination in solar floating plants

One of the biggest challenges when designing a floating structure in determining the loads to which it is subjected. This is due to the multiphysics character of the system, which is affected by wind, interaction with water, etc.
Combining out experience in the solar sector and the nautical setor, we have determined the loads in each of the elements of the structure (moorings, floats, beams, etc.)

PROJECT DEVELOPMENT

Loads determination

Before diving into load determination, it is very important to perform a weight calculation and buoyancy study.
Thanks to the application of fluid dynamic simulacion tools, CFD, we can determine the loads due to the wind. In addition, a study of the effect of waves on the behavior of the structure was carried out.
