Fluid-Structural Coupling Analysis of Composite Material Blades for the Offshore Wind Power Generator
This article will perform the fluid-structural coupling analysis of composite material blades of the offshore wind power. The computer engineering software GH Bladed is used to get the wind pressure on the offshore wind power generator, than ANSYS engineering software is used to calculate the stress and strain distribution in the blades. From the analytical results, the stress distribution in the blades can be a basic data to design a new blade for the offshore wind power generator.
