Short summary
In the frame of a multi-body simulation of a wind turbine, the lowest rotor blade eigenmodes are used to describe their elastic deformations. In this paper, a finite Timoshenko beam element is proposed based on the transfer matrix method. The element stiffness and mass matrices are derived by numerical integration of the differential equations of motion. A numerical example with generic rotor blade data demonstrates the performance of the method in comparison with FAST/ADAMS software results.
