JacketSE is a systems engineering model for 3 and 4-legged lattice structures (jackets) supporting tubular steel towers for offshore wind turbines. The analysis uses beam finite element theory, cylinder drag data, linear wave theory, shell and global buckling methods, and API RP-2A standard code checks. The module is developed as an OpenMDAO assembly.
This software is a beta version 0.1.1.
For detailed documentation see http://wisdem.github.io/JacketSE/
General: NumPy, SciPy, PyFrame3DD, OpenMDAO
Wind Plant Framework: FUSED-Wind (Framework for Unified Systems Engineering and Design of Wind Plants)
Sub-Models: CommonSE, PyFrame3DD
Supporting python packages: Pandas, Algopy, Zope.interface, Sphinx, Xlrd, PyOpt, py2exe, Pyzmq, Sphinxcontrib-bibtex, Sphinxcontrib-zopeext, Numpydoc, Ipython
Install JacketSE with the following command:
$ python setup.py install
or if in an activated OpenMDAO environment:
$ plugin install
Run Unit Tests
To check if installation was successful try to import the module from within an activated OpenMDAO environment:
$ python > import jacketse.jacket
You may also run the unit tests.
$ python src/jacketse/test/test_jacketse.py
