Abstract:

This report describes the design, fabrication, test, and evaluation of a prototype 150-foot long composite wind turbine blade. The objective of the program was to develop the engineering and fabrication technology for blades in this unprecented size range having the potential for low cost fabrication in production quantities. The major part of the engineering effort on this project was devoted to structural design and material selection which are compatible with low cost fabrication methods and objectives.
