Abstract
One of the challenges of the wind energy community today is to improve the existing background on the aerodynamic phenomena of a Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine (HAWT), the prediction of the wind speed distribution on the rotor plane, and the estimation of the design loads. This dissertation aims at contributing to the fulfillment of these objectives. In this way, this study assessed the feasibility of measuring the loads exerted on a HAWT blade by means of Stereoscopic Particle Image Velocimetry...
