OptiDAT is the composite material database from the OPTIMAT BLADES project. It contains all test results generated in the OPTIMAT research. The data cover a multitude of composite material characteristics, obtained in various types of static and fatigue testing, for representative wind turbine rotor blade materials.
During the project, OptiDAT was used to archive and exchange results between partners, track progress, and develop material models.
OptiDAT is a useful reference composite material database, e.g. for comparison of new wind turbine composite material performance to the behaviour of the OPTIMAT laminates. In addition, it can be used for development and validation of models to predict fatigue life under various conditions, or material behaviour in complex stress states, extreme conditions, variable amplitude fatigue, etc. The OptiDAT database can be downloaded from here as Excel document.
Detailed background documentation is given in the OptiDat Reference document.
