OPTIMAT Blades. Reliable Optimal Use of Materials for Wind Turbine Rotor Blades

Design recommendations and improved reliability, incl. prediction of the residual strength and life to extend the life of the blade or avoid unexpected failures.

The project aims to provide accurate design recommendations for the optimised use of materials within wind turbine rotor blades and to achieve improved reliability. This considers the design of new blades, but also the prediction of the residual strength and life. The latter can be used to extend the life of the blade or avoid unexpected failures, which will result in a better use of material. Furthermore, the possibility of repair will prevent waste of material.
