New concepts include lightweight and flexible fiberglass composite towers that have potential benefits over traditional stiff steel towers. The aim of this paper was to assess how the combination of a more flexible wind turbine tower with an offshore concrete gravity base foundation would affect the dynamic response of the structure. The results focus on how the dynamic amplification factors (DAFs) change with varying levels of foundation stiffness during an extreme event (50 year return period extreme event).||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Series/Report no.:||Lecture Notes in Civil Engineering book series (LNCE, volume 18)||Copyright (published version):||2019 Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.||Keywords:||Composite tower; Gravity base; Dynamic amplification factor||DOI:||10.1007/978-981-13-2306-5_72||Other versions:||https://vsoe2018.sciencesconf.org/||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Is part of:||VSOE 2018: Proceedings of the 1st Vietnam Symposium on Advances in Offshore Engineering||Conference Details:||The First Vietnam Symposium on Advances in Offshore Engineering: Energy and Geotechnics, Hanoi, Vietnam 1-3 November 2018|
