Classical flutter analysis of composite wind turbine blades including compressibility
Farsadi, Touraj; Kayran, Altan (Wiley, 2020-08-01)
For wind turbine blades with the increased slenderness ratio, flutter instability may occur at lower wind and rotational speeds. For long blades, at the flutter condition, relative velocities at blade sections away from th...
Reduced order nonlinear aeroelasticity of swept composite wings using compressible indicial unsteady aerodynamics
Farsadi, Touraj; Rahmanian, Mohammad; Kayran, Altan (Elsevier BV, 2020-01-01)
Nonlinear dynamic aeroelasticity of composite wings in compressible flows is investigated. To provide a reasonable model for the problem, the composite wing is modeled as a thin walled beam (TWB) with circumferentially asy...
