Hi all.

I am planning to model a horizontal axis wind turbine in gambit. I am having trouble finding geometry for wind turbine blades.

I am planning to take an existing blade design and study the effects of various winglets or other wingtip devices on the power output of the turbine.

I would rather use an existing blade rather than design my own new one.

If anyone has any info as to where I could find the dimensions of existing wind turbine blades I would be very grateful.

I need everything from aerofoil sections to chord ratios as well as amount of twist in the blade.

Thanking you all kindly
Sean
