In fact, maximum blade tip deflection is an important design parameter as the blade must be kept at a safe distance from the tower. Another problem with large blade deflection may arise as blade elements are translated out of the rotor plane or in lead-lag direction. In this situation the aerodynamic forces apply at a point that is not in the rotor plane or off the radial direction and hence they create additional moments. However, less obvious phenomena, such as buckling of panels in the blade’s surface, can also be detected.

FEA usually does not take defects from the manufacturing process into account, and failure criteria of composites are inaccurate particularly under non in-plane loading conditions. Failure criteria may be improved by taking fracture mechanical failure into account, but today it is unrealistic to include all types of interlaminar crack growth in an FEA of an entire wind turbine blade or a larger section, mainly due to computational limitations. g. the cohesive opening laws (References [24], [39] and [40]) still need further development before they are reliable at all load conditions.
