The Materials Research Division at Risø DTU will develop the scientific basis and computational tools for the microstructural optimisation of wind turbine blade materials with the China University of Mining and Technology, Beijing.

Risø has received a grant from the Danish Council for Strategic Research for the project, which will look at developing strong composites for wind turbine bladesby optimising their structures at a microlevel.

Different ways of modification and optimisation of wind turbine blade materials microstructures (including nanoengineered composites and hierarchical materials) will be explored in numerical experiments, Risø says.

The project manager (of the entire project, and of the Danish part) is Leon Mishnaevsky, Senior Scientist in the Materials Research Division at Risø National Laboratory for Sustainable Energy at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU).

The wind turbine blade materials project will run for three years and has a budget of DKK 5.5 million.
