Abstract

In order to study the mechanical properties of the heterogeneous core plate of the wind turbine blade, a modeling method of the core plate based on displacement field variables is proposed. Firstly, the wind turbine blade core plate was modeled according to the theory of modeling heterogeneous material characteristics. Secondly, the three-point bending finite element model of the wind turbine blade core plate was solved by the display dynamic equation to obtain the deformation pattern and force-deformation relationship of the core plate. Finally, the three-point bending static test was conducted to compare with the finite element analysis. The test results show that: the damage form of the wind turbine blade core plate includes elasticity, yield, and failure stages. The main failure modes are plastic deformation, core material collapse, and panel-core delamination. The failure load measured by the test is 1.59 kN, which is basically consistent with the load-displacement result obtained by the simulation, with a difference of only 1.9%, which verifies the validity and reliability of the model. It provides data references for wind turbine blade structure design.
