In 2011, Air Works (via his subsidiary company A2Wind) developed a 45.0m – 2.0MW glass fiber blade from the scratch book to the manufacturing drawings.
Our team was involved in all the phases of the project (including GL certification and tests) and Air Works personnel was in charge in all the key roles.
The entire sizing and design was carried out in < 5 months. Client’s main tasks (weight, performances, stiffness, manufacturing process optimization) were completely fulfilled.
Static, fatigue and dynamic loads were obtained by an internally developed Visual Basic code and the commercial software Focus-6. CatiaV5 was used for 3D and 2D CAD.
