Definition of structure Stefania Arangio - Structural integrity monitoring of long span bridges using adaptive models “device for channeling loads that results from the use and/or presence of the building to the ground” STRUCTURE This definition does not consider some important aspects: INTERACTION AMONG DIFFERENT STRUCTURAL PARTS INTERACTION BETWEEN THE WHOLE STRUCTURES AND THE DESIGN ENVIRONMENT Interactions are characterized by nonlinearities and uncertainties COMPLEXITY

  10. 10. How is possible to define (and measure ) the quality of complex structural systems as the OWT farms? We need a concept able to take properly into account the different aspects related to conceptual and structural design, construction and maintenance during the whole lifetime. DEPENDABILITY It is a global concept that describes the aspects assumed as relevant with regards to the quality performance and its influencing factors (Bentley,1993) In rigorous terms, the dependability of a system reflects the user’s degree of trust in that system, i.e. the user’s confidence that the system will operate as expected and will not “fail” in normal use (Sommerville, 2000): the system shall give the expected performance during the whole lifetime Dependability (1) Bontempi F., Ciampoli M., Arangio S. – Dependability of offshore wind turbines
  11. 11. Dependability (2) DEPENDABILITY OF STRUCTURAL SYSTEMS MEANS THREATS ATTRIBUTES Objective measure of the dependability Things that can undermine the dependability Ways to improve the dependability Bontempi F., Ciampoli M., Arangio S. – Dependability of offshore wind turbines IntroductionIntroductionPartIPartIPartIIPartIIConclusionsConclusions
  12. 12. Availability Integrity Safety Reliability Maintainability Security High level/ Active performance Low level/ Passive performance Attributes of the dependability ATTRIBUTES Bontempi F., Ciampoli M., Arangio S. – Dependability of offshore wind turbines
  13. 13. ReliabilityReliability: the system capacity of failure-free operation over a specified time in a given environment for a given performance (can be expressed quantitatively by a probability … ) AvailabilityAvailability: the system capacity (or readiness) at a point in time of being operational and able to perform as required (can be expressed quantitatively by a probability … ) MaintainabilityMaintainability: the system attribute concerned with the ease of repairing the system after a failure has been discovered or improving the system to include new features Active performance Bontempi F., Ciampoli M., Arangio S. – Dependability of offshore wind turbines IntroductionIntroductionPartIPartIPartIIPartIIConclusionsConclusions
  14. 14. IntegrityIntegrity: absence of alterations of structural response (related to the completeness and consistency of the structural configuration) SafetySafety: is a property of the system that reflects its ability to operate, normally or abnormally, without danger of causing human injury or death and without damage to the system’s environment (safety-related prescriptions usually exclude undesirable situations, rather than specify required performances) SecuritySecurity: The system property that reflects the system’s ability to protect itself from accidental or deliberate external attack (robustnessrobustness) Passive performance Bontempi F., Ciampoli M., Arangio S. – Dependability of offshore wind turbines IntroductionIntroductionPartIPartIPartIIPartIIConclusionsConclusions
  15. 15. Reliability and safety are related but distinct o In general, reliability (and availability) is necessary but not sufficient condition for system safety o Reliability is concerned with conformance to a given specification for a given performance o Safety is concerned with ensuring system cannot cause damage irrespective of whether or not it conforms to its specification ReliabilityReliability SafetySafety SecuritySecurity It is an essential pre-requisite for availability, reliability and safety.

  25. 25. Conclusions Offshore wind turbines (OWT) are complex structural systems Their complexity is related to: - nonlinearities - uncertainties - interaction between the parts - interaction between the whole structure and the environmental design University of Rome “La Sapienza” A global concept is needed to the define the quality of the OWT in a comprehensive way DEPENDABILITY
  26. 26. Conclusions (2) The concept of dependability has been applied to OWT support structures to investigate the survivability of the system in presence of extreme actions University of Rome “La Sapienza” λ = 1.44λ = 1.00 The increasing of damage from the reference ULS configuration has been considered by means of the load multiplier and considering the modal behavior of the structure
