Buckling resistant blades - TRL3

Method to increase buckling resistance in wind turbine blades through unbalanced fibre composite lay ups.

Buckling resistant blade

The potential for load alleviation and increased critical buckling load through the use of unbalanced fibre layup has been documented for a large number of design cases through simulations and laboratory experiments.
