Wind turbine blade structural performance testing

J.J. Heijdra, M.S. Borst and D.R.V. Van Delft,     Knowledge Centre WMC, The Netherlands

Abstract:

International safety and design standards for structural performance analysis require full-scale testing of each wind turbine blade prototype and of blades that have undergone major design changes. The purpose of blade testing is to demonstrate that the blade design and production are such that the blade possesses the intended strength and service life. Full-scale testing can be seen as final design verification that also checks the assumptions used in the design. In this chapter, aspects of full-scale blade testing are considered in the practical context of the blade test laboratory. An overview ...
