Abstract
Tese de doutoramento em Construção Metálica e Mista, apresentada ao Departamento de Engenharia Civil da Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia da Universidade de Coimbra In the last few years it was registered an increase in the exploitation of renewable energies, namely wind energy, due to the increasing concern about the environmental problems related with the global warming. The forecast of the official entities is to increase the exploitation of the wind energy of around 61% in the European Union territory until 2020, with the implementation of newer structures for wind turbines. The same trend is followed worldwide with an increase of around 47% in the cumulati...
