Abstract

In this section the research program framework for European PhD network MARE-WINT is presented, particularly the technology development work focussing on reliability/maintenance and the models describing multi-body fluid structure interaction for the Rotor Blade structure. In order to give a context for the effort undertaken by the individual researchers this section gives a general background for Wind Turbine blades identifying the trends and issues of importance for these structures as well as concepts for “smarter” blades that address these issues.
