Important challenges must be addressed to make wind turbines sustainable renewable energy sources. A typical problem concerns the design of the foundation. If the pile diameter is larger than that of the jacket platform, traditional mechanical models cannot be used. In this study, relying on the seabed soil data of an offshore wind farm, the m-method and the equivalent embedded method are used to address the single-pile wind turbine foundation problem for different pile diameters. An approach to determine the equivalent pile length is also proposed accordingly. The results provide evidence for the effectiveness and reliability of the model based on the equivalent embedded method.
