If you missed the last JEC Europe 2012 in Paris, here is the opportunity to purchase the proceedings of the Wind Energy Forum in PDF format.

 

Wind Turbine Blades: Design, construction and environmental effects:

 

Key Focus

  • Blade design and validation
  • Structural materials for wind turbine blades
  • Effects on wind farm operation

 

Wind Energy (Wind Turbine Blades: Design, construction and environmental effects)

 

  • Blade design and validation
  • Structural materials for wind turbine blades
  • Effects on wind farm operation

 

A key driver in the wind turbine industry is to reduce the cost of wind-derived electricity. A major element of this is to increase the length of turbine blades- 40-50m blades are now common, while designs are in place for over 80m. This put ever greater emphasis on the materials used in blade construction. Blade design and validation are becoming increasingly sophisticated. This has a major effect on the durability of materials in the field and on subsequent recycling.
