Description

Raw test data from SEAI funded ACCORD project. Results are from helical foil fatigue testing under radial load at ultimate limit state for ORPC's RivGen Power System. Load was applied at two locations along foil span to test turbine foil strength as well as composite clamp joint strength. The data highlights that the joint design is capable of handling the load applied where strain increase with cycles of load converged over time.
