Composite Materials (COM)

The Section for Composite Materials covers manufacturing, characterization and mechanical testing of composites for wind turbine blades, and other structural applications.

The Section has a long-term experience in applied research and development of composite materials, as part of international and national projects, and in close collaboration with industry. 

The work of COM is centered on the laboratories of Fiberlab, Plasmalab and Testlab, where the latter one is DANAK accredited for mechanical testing of composites.  

The vision for COM is to sustain its position among the leading composite laboratories in wind energy, and to play a visible and significant role in the development of future wind turbine blades.

The diagram below shows the competences and expertise of COM within manufacturing, characterization and mechanical testing of composite materials, together with the two crosscutting areas of elements and sustainable materials. These two areas are considered central in future research and innovation of wind turbine blades.
