Samenvatting:
In this paper, the results of the EU-JOULE project ?Verification of European Wind Turbine Design Codes, VEWTDC? are reported. In this project a verification is performed of eight wind turbine codes from five different European countriesCode predictions of mechanical loads (blade loads, rotor loads, tower loads) have been compared with measurements on three different turbines, obtained at different conditions (normal operating conditions and special events). The paper describes the working procedure, a global description of the different codes and a selection of results. Emphasis is put on the problems which have to be faced when trying to translate the differences between calculations and measurement to design inaccuracies.
