DNV GL’s Bladed wind turbine modelling solution has undergone a big transformation to improve functionality and user experience. The new features of Bladed 4.8 include Bladed Cloud, Multipart Blade and Result Animation.
The new Bladed Cloud service gives turbine designers the ability to optimise designs using the computing resources of Amazon Web Services. The on-demand computing platform means that turbine designers no longer require high performance computers. Users can simply click one button in Bladed and their calculations are sent to the Cloud for processing. The new Multipart Blade non-linear structural model reduces uncertainty in blade vibration predictions. Using Bladed’s new 3D animation graphical environment, users can view the simulated turbine behaviour by ‘panning’ around the 3D model and observing the motion of the structure from any angle.
