This chapter explores the influence of resin and reinforcing fabric variations on the fatigue sensitivity for a wide range of typical blade laminates reported recently in the SNL/MSU/DOE database. Test results are presented for static and fatigue property variations with resin type, reinforcing fabric construction and weight, fiber content and laminate construction. Critical resin/fabric interactions and damage mechanisms are identified. The effects of resin and fiber type are also explored for material transitions at ply drops, where

In the wind industry, the current trend is towards building larger and larger turbines. This presents additional structural challenges and requires blade materials that are both lighter and stiffer than the ones presently used. This study is aimed to aid the work of designing new wind turbine blades by providing a comparative study of different composite materials. A coupled Finite-Element-Method (FEM) - Blade Element Momentum (BEM) code was used to simulate the aerodynamic forces subjected on the blade. For this
