NuMAD (Numerical Manufacturing And Design) is an open-source software tool written in Matlab which simplifies the process of creating a three-dimensional model of a wind turbine blade. The graphical, user-friendly tool manages all blade information including airfoils, materials, and material placement. NuMAD uses the blade information to generate input files for other tools:
When used in conjunction with these other tools, NuMAD provides computation of blade cross section properties, analysis of blade buckling, and estimation of blade aeroelastic instability. The user’s manual (SAND2012-7028) describes the capabilities and usage of NuMAD.
