Release notes

Manual version 4.5

The report contains the user’s manual for the aeroleastic code HAWC2. The code is intended for calculating wind turbine response in time domain and has a structural formulation based on multi-body dynamics. The aerodynamic part of the code is based on the blade element momentum theory, but extended from the classic approach to handle dynamic inflow, dynamic stall, skew inflow, shear effects on the induction and effects from large deflections. It has mainly been developed within the years 2003-2006 at the Aeroelastic Design Research Program at DTU Wind Energy, DTU Risø Campus in Denmark, but is continously updated and improved.

This manual is updated for HAWC2 version 11.8
