As part of the MUSCAS project, the objectives are:
- Develop numerical tools in order to consider coupled phenomena in a stochastic framework on complex structures, such as jacket foundations of wind turbine.
- Use these tools for reliability analysis and for goal-oriented sensor positioning

Scientific and technical limitations
Optimal design of marine renewable energy structures requires modeling several coupled phenomena. As a consequence, numerical simulations become expensive and complexe especially in the stochastic framework with uncertainties modeled as random variables. Moreover, compared to other industries, such as aeronautic or shipbuilding, engineers have only few feedbacks. Therefore, mastering all the conception steps and benefiting from the sensor measurements on the structure is of prime concern.
