ABSTRACT

In this paper the selection of material for a horizontal axis wind turbine blade is done using ANSYS Fluid-Structure Interaction simulation which is composed of two main parts. The first part is a computational fluid dynamic simulation of the fluid flow around the blade geometry to get the pressure load acting on the blade due to wind. The second part is a finite element analysis of the blade to get the deformation and stress distribution due to pressure load and its rotation. A study of several materials is made in this paper to select material based on total deformation, stress distribution and maximum equivalent stress (von-Mises).
