Wind Turbine Blade
Created using ANSYS 13.0
This tutorial is not being updated any more. We recommend that you follow this newer tutorial on fluid-structure analysis of a wind turbine blade. Thank you!
This tutorial is based on this M.Eng project report completed at Cornell University in 2011. In this exercise, we will examine the stresses and deformation of a wind turbine blade under a force load.
Young's Modulus (Pa)
0.03 - 0.00048485*X
We are now ready to open ANSYS Workbench
