Abstract: Nowadays wind turbine is used widely in many countries as power plant. When the wind turbine blade rotates there will be aerodynamic forces acting on the blade such as drag, lift, weight andcentrifugal forces. When designing wind turbine blade it is necessary to test whether the blade canwithstand the aerodynamic forces or not. Stress analysis is a feature that can predict stress acting onconstruction. Nowadays there are many stress analysis softwares that can be used to predict stress. Inthis research the stress analysis will be used by using autodesk inventor.The research purposes are tofind the stress acting on the wind turbine blade and to get the maximum stress location.
Keywords: Stress analysis,horizontal axis wind turbine blade.
