Development of Advanced Nanoengineered Composites for Wind Turbine Blades

Risø DTU collaborates with the China University of Mining and Technology, Beijing (CUMTB) for a newly approved project, which focuses on the creation of a logical concept to develop strong, enhanced composites for wind turbines.

This is done through the optimization of composite structures at the microscale. This can be performed via a complete materials testing programme. In addition, establishing a virtual lab will help to achieve the required goal. A virtual lab supports to perform computational tests on various materials for wind turbine applications. Numerical experiments will aid in exploring various methods to optimize and modify microstructures of wind blade materials.

The new project will also include development of precise methods for predicting the strength and lifetime of wind blade nanomaterials under difficult environmental and cyclic loads. In addition, recommendations will be created for the performance enhancement of nanoengineered composites for use in wind blades.

"3D virtual testing of composites for wind energy applications: Computational mesomechanics approach," is one of the earlier projects jointly carried out by Risø and CUMTB.
