Abstract [en]

The paper deals with connections used to assemble sections of tubular steel towers supporting wind turbines. The design of current ring flange connections is briefly presented. An alternative option for the assembling connection is to use single overlapping friction connection. This is introduced in on-going research project "HISTWIN- High-Strength Steel Tower for Wind Turbine, 2006-2009". The main characteristic of the friction connection is long open slotted holes. Design example for equivalent design load at ultimate load of the friction connection is compared to the flange solution on a particular example of REpower Tower MM92. The benefits of the new connection in terms of design simplicity, fatigue strength and material costs are discussed.
