[en] Nowadays, the offshore wind industry is expanding fast and many wind farms will be built in the near future. For every new project, a complete collision risk analysis is required. Usually, the crashworthiness of an offshore structure is assessed with nonlinear finite element simulations that provide accurate results but are time-demanding. Such approach is relevant in the final design but is not suitable at pre-design stage for which hundreds or sometimes thousands of collision scenarios have to be investigated. The purpose of this PhD thesis is thus to develop simplified semi-analytical formulations to compute quickly the resistance of an offshore wind turbine jacket impacted by a ship.
