Floating wind turbines have to operate under the influence of hydrodynamic and aerodynamic forces which are usually coupled in nature. Due to complicated interactions of wave and wind forces on its structure, predicting motion and performance of a floating wind turbine usually depend on many assumptions. In order to understand the dynamics of the system, experimental studies are required to obtain results by taking into account all parameters. This study is a part of a Tübitak project (217M451) that investigates the dynamics of different floating platforms with a wind turbine attached to it under an atmospheric boundary layer wind profile. In this thesis, a scaling methodology was used to model a wind turbine to use in experimental studies. Reynolds number discrepancy was demonstrated in floating wind turbine modeling. For this reason, the method was created by using Froude number and tip speed ratio similitude, and geometric, kinematic and dynamic similarity was achieved. According to the created methodology, an onshore wind turbine that has 320kW nominal power was scaled down to be used in experimental studies according to the open sea conditions. Along with the model turbine, a thrust force measuring mechanism, hot-wire sensor travers system and a motion detection method by a video have been realized. A wave maker and a wind nozzle which are the part of the Tübitak project of which the model turbine described in this thesis will be used, therefore; small description of those are also given in the thesis.
