CTC can analyze and optimize the shape of wind turbine blades from the point of view of the aerodynamics, to continue with structural calculations and design of the main components of the wind turbine.
For the offshore wind energy sector, the experience of CTC permits to address two types of projects: analysis and design of complex structural elements following the requirements defined by standards and to develop research projects with the objective of implement new methodologies and model calculations to dimension this kind of structures.
Specialization lines and Technologies:
Stress analysis, fracture mechanics and fatigue.
Thermal and structural simulations (ANSYS).
Thermo hydraulic simulations by CFD codes (ANSYS CFX).
Structural reliability assessment with probabilistic methods.
