    In this report the strength of a wind turbine blade is found and compared with a full-scale test, made in the same project. Especially the postbuckling behaviour of the compression flange is studied. Different compressive failure mechanisms are discussedand the limitations in using the Finite Element Method. A suggestion to the further work is made.
