This projects aims at investigating the uncertainties in the present predictions of classical flutter of wind blades by implementation and use of improved aeroelastic engineering models (e.g. the near wake model) and full 3D CFD blade computations. The predictions are sought validated against experimental studies. The project may furthermore include flutter predictions for blades with various types of trailing edge flap systems.
