Bladed provides worldwide wind turbine and component manufacturers, certification agencies, design consultants and research organisations with a design tool that has been extensively validated against measured data from a wide range of turbines. It enables users to conduct the full range of performance and loading calculations. With a Windows-based user interface, it supports calculations of combined wind and wave loading, with full aeroelastic and hydroelastic modelling. It has been validated for the calculation of wind turbine loads for design and certification. Multibody structural dynamics Bladed utilises a new, completely self-consistent and rigorous formulation of the structural dynamics. This provides consistently reliable and accurate results and forms a solid foundation from which to continue to extend the structural model with features as part of the ongoing development programme. Bladed Modules In addition to the core base module, Bladed has several specialist bolt-on modules covering steady state analysis, dynamic load simulations, analysis of loads and energy capture, batch processing and automated report generation, interaction with the electrical network, and model linearisation for control design.

Turbine Definition Turbine Definition The main toolbar gives access to data entry screens which allow the various turbine components to be defined. Load Environment Load Environment Comprehensive models of complex wind fields, definition models of hydrodynamic forces and an optional seismic module for earthquakes simulations. Response Calculations Response Calculations From blade aerodynamics to power curves: simulations that cover all operational states; flexible control of calculation outputs. Processing & Reports Processing & Reports A powerful post-processing facility to analyse the results of calculations, a graphics facility which allows the user to view results quickly and project management tool to store store and share turbine and calculation definitions.
