Recommended Practice for Compliance of Large Land-based Wind Turbine Support Structures

Recommended Practice for Compliance of Large Land-This December 2011 report by AWEA and the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) details design and approval-process recommendations to achieve engineering integrity of U.S. wind turbines.

The AWEA/ASCE report aims to:

  • Enable those responsible for the permitting process to clarify the standards that have been used in the design process and should be applied when assessing wind turbine structural capacity, and
  • Ensure that wind turbine structures have an appropriate minimum level of protection against damage from hazards during the planned lifetime.
