The objective of this study was to adequately examine potential wave fields, flow fields, and suspended load changes in different wind turbine foundations. Accordingly, this study applied the hydrodynamic model to simulate waves, currents, and suspended load in the study area. The simulation results are based on the assumption that dredging and rubble bed trimming were performed for 8 h and that the per foundation setting operation was completed in 2 h. The influence on the tripile and jacket was larger than that on the monopile, and the influence time was longer. However, due to the influence of tidal currents on the sea, the suspended load also became more acceptable than the initial concentration. From a macroscopic perspective, the different foundations did not sufficiently affect the study area. From a microscopic perspective, changes in the suspended load were only limited to areas surrounding the piles after the installation of the wind turbines. View Full-Text
