    Abstract

    In this paper an anisotropic beam element for a composite wind turbine blades is developed.
    Eigenvalue analysis with the new beam element is conducted in order to understand its
    responses associated with the wind turbine performances. From the results of natural frequencies
    and mode shapes it is obvious that the anisotropic characteristics should not be ignored to obtain
    accurate results.
