Gravo-aeroelastic scaling of a 13-MW downwind rotor for 20% scale blades

A 105-m, 13-MW two-bladed downwind Segmented Ultralight Morphing Rotor (SUMR-13) blade was gravo-aeroelastically scaled by 20% to a 20.87-m-long demonstrator blade and confirmed through structural ground testing. The subscale model was achieved …
