Short summary
The seismic soil–structure interaction of wind turbine support structures is investigated. Wind turbine support structures are modelled as a non-classically damped system, and its seismic loadings are analytically derived by the response spectrum method. To improve the prediction accuracy of the shear force on the footing, a threshold for the allowable modal damping ratio is proposed. The proposed method is capable of effectively estimating seismic loadings on the tower and footing.
