Wind Blade
Date: 2019-03-06
An alliance of ten of the world's largest wund industry player -- DNV GL, Vestas, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, LM Wind Power, Orsted, Senvion, Mankeweicz, Akzonobel, Aerox-CEU, Polytech, Hempel and PPG -- are reporting their collaboration to form Comprehensive Methodology for Blade Rain Erosion Analysis on protecting turbine blades from weather damage. The project will investigate the damage caused to leading edge wind turbine blades from the high-speed impacts of raindrops, identify and develop protection systems and recommended practices for designing a protection system against rain erosion which will be published by July 2020.

The initiative aims to identify and define relevant material properties for a protection system; Develop a methodology to handle and derive design loads from rain data; and develop both a model to conduct raindrop impact analysis and a design methodology for leading edge protection systems.
