    • Fatigue life of pitch- and stall-regulated composite tidal turbine blades 

      Kennedy, Ciaran R.; Jaksic, Vesna; Leen, Sean B.; Ó Brádaigh, Conchúr M. (Elsevier, 2018-02-28)
      Tidal turbine blades are subject to harsh loading and environmental conditions, including large thrust and torsional loadings, relative to wind turbine blades, due to the high density of seawater, among other factors. The ...
    • Validation of the multi-objective structural optimisation of a composite wind turbine blade 

      Fagan, Edward M.; de la Torre Rodríguez, Oscar; Leen, Sean B.; Goggins, Jamie (Elsevier, 2018-08-01)
      Structural optimisation of a wind turbine blade is presented in this work. The optimisation was performed using a multi-objective genetic algorithm and finite element modelling to determine the optimal structural design ...
