Figure 4.7 illustrates the main structural parameters and various stresses or forces act-

ing on a section of a beam. Te structural parameters are described as follows:

Glass ﬁbre mats and epoxy

**Figure 4.6 Blade fabrication details.

**126** ◾ Wind Turbine Technology

EI1 = bending stifness about the frst principal axis

EI2 = bending stifness about second principal axis

GIv = torsional stifness

XE = distance of the point of elasticity from the reference point shown in

Figure 4.6

Xm = distance of the center of the blade mass from the reference point

Xs = distance of the shear center from the reference point

β = angle of twist of airfoil section measured with respect to the reference line

v = angle between chord line and frst principal axis

Te point of elasticity is defned as the point where the normal plane will not give

rise to a bending moment of the beam. Te s point where the shear stress is con-

centrated will not give rise to a defection under shear stress and will not rotate the

airfoil. Te moment of inertia (I) about one of the principal axes plays a key role in

the blade defection. Te impacts of critical quantities such longitudinal stifness

(EA) and moment of centrifugal stifness (EDXYR) defned in terms of reference

coordinate system on the blade must be described in detail. Te reference coordi-

nate system (XRYR) is illustrated in Figure 4.7.

EA = longitudinal stifness

ESXR = moment of stifness about the axis XR

(XR, YR) = reference coordinate system as indicated by black dot

EIXR = moment of stifness about axis XR (Figure 4.8)

EIYR moment of stifness about axis YR (Figure 4.8)

Using these quantities, the point of elasticity PE (XE,YE) can be calculated in the

reference system as:

XE = [ESYR]

(4.19)

YE = [ESXR]

(4.20)

Using E (Young’s modulus) and ρ (material density), the point (XE,YE) represents

the center of mass for the section illustrated in Figure 4.8. If the moment of stif-

ness inertia and moments of centrifugal stifness are moved to the coordinate

system designated as (X´,Y´), which is parallel to the reference system (XR,YR) as

shown in Figure 4.8, the expression for the point of elasticity can be easily writ-

ten. Te angle of attack (α) between the X´ axis and frst principal axis and the

bending stifness about the principal axes can be calculated from these equations.

Also the stress equation can be written as:

Σ (x,y) = [E (x,y)][ε (x,y)]

(4.21)

where the expression for the strain can be written as:

Σ (x,y) = M1 y/[EI1] – M2 x/[EI2] + N/[EA]

(4.22)

where the constant σ, ε, and N are positive for tension and negative for compression

and the normal Force N can computed from the loadings on the blade. Tese param-

eters now can determine the main structural characteristics. Since a wind turbine

blade is generally very stif in torsion, the torsional defection is normally neglected.

Shear center and the torsional rigidity can be calculated using computer analysis.

**128** ◾ Wind Turbine Technology

Various structural data for a 30-m turbine blade used on a 2-MW Tjaereborg wind

turbine are summarized in Table 4.8. Defections, various forces acting on the

blade, and bending moments of the blade are shown in Figure 4.9. Note the coordi-

nate system used in Figure 4.9 is diferent from the system shown in Figure 4.8.

4.3.9.2 Shearing Forces and Bending Moments

in Presence of External Forces

Te magnitudes of shearing forces (Tz) and Ty) and bending moments (My and Mz)

acting on a blade in the presence of external forces are diferent from those in the

absence of the external forces (py and pz). See Figure 4.10. Te shearing forces and

the bending moments can be calculated using the following equations [3]:

[dTz/dx] = [– pz(x)] + [m(x) d2

U(x)/dz2

]

(4.23

[dTy/dx] = [– py(x)] + [m(x) d2

U(x) / dy2

]

(4.24)

[dMy/dx] = Tz

are the accelerations along the z

the right sides of Equations (4.23) and (4.24) approach zero. Although these equa-

tions have been taken from Walker [4], the expressions can be derived using the

**4.4 Application of Beam Theory to Various
Turbine Blade Confgurations
**

Aerodynamic studies performed by the author indicate that beam theory can be

applied successfully to design various blade confgurations. Tis section describes

how a rotor blade whose outer contour adheres strictly to aerodynamic consider-

ations is fabricated to be sufciently strong and stif to withstand various forces

under unusual wind conditions. Materials used in the past such as wood, alumi-

num, glass fber-reinforced plastic (GFRP), and carbon-fber-reinforced plastic

(CFRP) have not demonstrated the required strength and stifness under extreme

wind environments.
