    Abstract

    The paper presents full-scale blade tests under a combined flap- and edgewise loading. The main
    aim of this paper is to present the results from testing a wind turbine blade under such conditions
    and to study the structural behavior of the blade subjected to combined loading. A loading
    method using anchor plates was applied, allowing transverse shear distortion. The global and
    local deformation of the blade as well as the reproducibility of the test was studied and the
    results from the investigations are presented.
