A progress report on the characterization and modeling of a very flexible wind turbine design
37th Aerospace Sciences Meeting and Exhibit
Printed on paper containing at least 50% wastepaper, including 20% postconsumer waste ABSTRACT The combination of increasing turbine rotor diameters and the desire to achieve long lifetimes has placed increased emphasis on understanding the response of flexible turbine structures in a turbulent inflow environment. One approach to increase fatigue lifetimes has been to design structures that can either shed or adequately absorb turbulent loads through the use of flexible rotors and supportdoi:10.2514/6.1999-52 fatcat:2kyvxzehovc4fj7o7cpnqqoe6y
