Development of high performance composite bend-twist coupled blades for a horizontal axis tidal turbine
At 17th International Conference on Composite Materials.
27 - 31 Jul 2009.
Development of a design methodology for a composite, bend-twist coupled, tidal turbine blade has been undertaken. Numerical modelling was used to predict the response of the main structural member for the adaptive blade. An experimental method for validation is described. The analysis indicates a non-linear blade twist response.
