GL Renewables Certification evaluates software tool

(PresseBox) ( Hamburg, )
GL Renewables Certification has started a project to evaluate the LMS SAMTECH software tool "SAMCEF For Wind Turbines" (S4WT). The software by LMS SAMTECH provides an integrated solution simulating the complete dynamic behaviour of wind turbines under realistic wind conditions. The objective of this project in conjunction with the major player in the CAE industry LMS SAMTECH is to validate and to certify S4WT for the computation of aero-elastic wind turbine design loads according to the certification standards of GL Renewables Certification.

As an initial key element for wind turbine development and design, aero-elastic simulations provide the mechanical load assumptions on the different turbine components, which can be expected during the turbine's lifetime. GL Renewables Certification with its long term experience in the certification of wind turbine loads will carry out detailed comparisons between in-house aero-elastic software tools and SAMCEF for Wind Turbines (S4WT).


LMS SAMTECH is a European leading provider of Computer Aided Engineering software. Founded in 1986, SAMTECH develops and markets the general-purpose Finite Element Analysis code SAMCEF, the Multi-Disciplinary Optimization platform BOSS Quattro and the Open CAE Integration Framework CAESAM. These core engineering software tools answer to a wide range of industrial needs from the preliminary phases of design to the most advanced verification analyses. The software technology of SAMTECH has an unsurpassed reputation for its quality and reliability. It has been adopted by many major companies across all engineering disciplines as an integral part of their design process. SAMTECH is now a member of LMS International Group.
