Wind Turbine Design Software
Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Bladed is the industry standard integrated software package for the design and certification of onshore and offshore turbines.
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.
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.

The main toolbar gives access to data entry screens which allow the various turbine components to be defined.
Comprehensive models of complex wind fields, definition models of hydrodynamic forces and an optional seismic module for earthquakes simulations.
From blade aerodynamics to power curves: simulations that cover all operational states; flexible control of calculation outputs.
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.
