Presented in order to promote research and development and to train doctoral students in the field of wind energy, this text describes engineering aspects of the structural planning, design, and construction of concrete structures for wind turbines. The material arises out of the collaborative research work of the Centre for Wind Energy Research, based out of Carl von Ossietzky U. of Oldenburg and Liebniz U. of Hannover, Germany. Chapters cover: actions on wind turbines, non-linear material behavior, loadbearing structures and detailed design, and construction of prestressed concrete towers. Ernst & Sohn is a Wiley company.
