Abstract: The article is devoted to the practical problem of computer simulation of the dynamic behaviour of horizontal axis wind turbine composite rotor blades. This type of wind turbine is the dominant design in modern wind farms, and as such its dynamics and strength characteristics should be carefully studied. For this purpose, in this paper the mechanical model of a rotor blade with a composite skin possessing a stiffener was developed and implemented as a finite element model in ABAQUS. On the basis of this computer model, modal analysis of turbine blade vibrations was performed and benchmark cases for the dynamic response were investigated. The response of the system subjected to a uniform underneath pressure was studied, and the root reaction force and blade tip displacement time histories were obtained from the numerical calculations conducted.
