Erosion in wind-turbine blades solved with help of AI

By Michelle Froese The erosion of materials used in wind-turbine blades due to the effect of weather conditions is a problem that applies to the whole wind energy sector. VTT’s antiAGE project found a functional solution to the material problem with the help of artificial intelligence and 3D printing.
New research greatly reduces the impact of leading-edge blade erosion, thanks to the help of artificial intelligence and 3D printing.
The erosion of wind-turbine blade material is a surprisingly costly problem, which engineers have yet to solve.
“The blade material erodes due to the effect of rain, hailstones, and sand dust, which significantly reduces the service life
