Abstract

This is a study of a uni-directional non-crimp fabric reinforced epoxy composite material typically used as the load carrying laminate in wind turbine blades. Based on a 3D xray
tomography scan, the bundle and fibre/matrix structure of the composite is segmented. This segmentation is used in a multi-scale finite element model bridging the gap from the
individual fibers organized in bundles to the stitched non-crimp fabric used for building up the load carrying laminates.
