Floating wind turbines are complex dynamic systems. The dynamics and design of such systems pose interesting engineering and scientific challenges. Although there already exist some informative and valuable reviews of this topic, there have been many additional and important studies in more recent years. This topical paper reviews the main developments and research avenues currently under way, focusing on recent research literature. It addresses specific challenges of floating wind turbines and introduces key issues focused on the floating platform. In addition, recommendations for further research are introduced.
