According to theoretical calculating result of stress, four different lay-up structures of 1.2 MW horizontal axis wind turbine blade, which can effectively endure various loads, are designed primarily. Based on composite laminate theory and finite element method, through analyzing their stress-strain, the optimal lay-up schema is confirmed. The verified analysis of stiffness and strength were performed under extreme load conditions. Numerical analysis results show that the designed blade structure was safe, and the value of stress and strain was low.
