A laboratory study is reported regarding fatigue damage growth monitoring in a complete 45.7m long wind turbine blade. The main purpose of this study was to investigate the feasibility of in-service monitoring of the structural health of blades by Acoustic Emission (AE). Cyclic loading by compact resonant masses was performed to accurately simulate in-service load conditions and 187kcs of fatigue was performed over 21 days, during which, AE monitoring was performed with a four sensor array… CONTINUE READING
