This book is comprised of the proceedings of the Euromech Colloquium 464b "Wind Energy". It comprises reports on basic research, as well as research related to the practical exploitation and application of wind energy. The book describes the atmospheric turbulent wind condition on different time scales, and the interaction of wind turbines with both wind and water flows. These influence the design, operation and maintenance of offshore wind turbines.
