Title:
Topology Optimization of Structures under Aerodynmic Loads With Application to Wind Turbine Blades 
Abstract:
In this thesis, the use of topology optimization for structures under aerodynamic loads, like wind turbine blades, is evaluated. The FE-based software Optistruct® (1), packaged in Altair’s HyperWorks®, is used as pre-processor and optimizer. The aerodynamic loads are calculated using a CFD simulation of the flow around the structures. OpenFoam® was used for the simulation. Two different blade models are used. A blade designed by National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the CX-100 blade by...    »
