I do not want that FAST is abording the simulation when a tower strike happens. It should complete the simulation.
In which files are which changes are necessary? I searched for “tower strike” in the files and only found it in Aerodyn.f90 and AeroSubs.f90
I hope someone can help me!
It is the following code in AeroDyn.f90 that is causing FAST to abort upon the tower strike:
if ( TwrClrnc <= 0.0_ReKi ) then
call SetErrStat(ErrID_Fatal, "Tower strike.", ErrStat, ErrMsg, RoutineName)
You could change
and recompile to issue a warning that will not result in the simulation aborting. Of course, the simulation may not be realistic during the tower strike because FAST does not model the impact forcing.
