Abstract

The requirements to wind turbine blades and other elements are quite high, In the ideal case, a wind turbine should work for 20.30 years without or with minimum maintenance. That is why the damage resistance and strength of wind blade materials is of great importance. A way to enhance the strength and reliability of wind blades is to develop new advanced materials with improved structures. In this work, several computational micromechanical models of wind blade materials are presented. The possibility of computational testing of materials and their numerical optimization are discussed.
