A precise understanding of the dynamics of a blade is essential for its design, especially in the development of new structures and the resolution of noise and vibration problems. This understanding involves the study of experimental and/or theoretical modal analysis. These latter present effective tools for describing, understanding and modelling the dynamic aspect of each structure, in the present work, we are going to establish the Eigen-mode of a wind turbine blade made by a new composite material ‘hemp fibre’ using theoretical calculation for flap-wise, edge-wise and torsional mode using the finite element method applied to a structure consisting of a beam embedded at one end, based on the Euler-Bernoulli hypothesis and the equation of beam’s motion. Furthermore; we compare the obtained results with those of composite material made by fibreglass.
Keywords: Blade, Eigen-mode, hemp fibre, flap-wise, edge-wise, torsional, fibreglass.
