Design and Structural Analysis of Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine Blade
The objective of this project is to design the blade of a horizontal axis wind turbine. This work includes the advancement of drag and lift design concepts. This work uses ANSYS workbench to explore the study of a horizontal axis wind turbine blade Concepts. The blade is examined in this work for four different blade materials Aluminium, stainless steel, Structural steeland Titanium. The purpose of the study is to validate blade strength and to analyse with taken materials in order to take the best material for the blade of the horizontal axis wind turbine and to obtain the blades necessary properties.
