Carbon Fiber 2013 Conference Report
Opportunities knock in Knoxville: CF 2013 featured nearly 30 speakers and almost 300 attendees, representing a wide range of participating industry, government and academic organizations.

Wind blades: Progress and challenges
Despite double-digit wind energy industry growth, turbine blade manufacturers and materials suppliers acknowledge a pressing need to reduce costs and innovate.

Competition for carbon fiber in longer blades
Although the use of carbon fiber is increasign in wind turbine blades, high-strength S-glass and basalt fibers, new resins and improved blade designs are also providing blade designers the means to limit blade weight gain as they increase blade swept area.

Wind turbine blades: Glass vs. carbon fiber
As the wind energy market continues to grow, competition heats up between glass and carbon fiber composites for turbine blades.

Training surge: Too little, too late?
Hands-on programs are aimed at younger students by educators hoping to prevent shortages of composites technicians and engineers.

Blade repair: Closing the maintenance gap
Citing difficult work conditions, lack of OEM guidance and underdeveloped inspection technologies, those who service wind turbine blades seek remedial solutions.

Blade manufacturers expand to meet demand
Unprecedented growth in the wind energy market has necessitated a significant need for the manufacture of rotor blades, particularly in locales near developing wind farms.

The state of education in the composites trade, part II
Andre Cocquyt (GRPguru.comm, Brunswick, Maine) continues his call for a unified national composites education standard, and suggests a practical way forward toward that goal.
