    Abstract Mechanical characteristics of small wind turbine blades of National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) 63-415 series with different Univinyl (UV) foam alignments have been evaluated experimentally using Universal Testing Machine and numerically using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software ANSYS. The wind turbine blade models considered are selected from the NACA 63415 series to give a power output of 1 kW. The blades in this study are made like a sandwich beam structure. The outermost portion of the blade is made of glass fiber reinforced plastics with epoxy resin as composite and Uni-vinyl foam alignments are… More >
