Fatigue damages are crucial to tackle in order to extend blade lifetime and reduce costs of operation. With the blades getting longer and thinner, significant challenges in regards to fatigue design and
verification need to be tackled. This workshop will offer an interactive discussion between participants to envision solutions toward lifetime durability especially in the case of large blades:
What are the effects of fatigue? What are the main cost drivers? How fatigue influences blade design? What are the capabilities of composite materials under fatigue loading?
