This dataset contains the bearing load distributions of different load cases of a third rotor star FE-model of the IWES Wind Turbine 7.5, which is a 7.5 MW nearshore turbine model. Using combinations of the resulting blade moment, the angle of said moment, and the pitch angle of the blade, a total of 260 simulations were FE simulated. These simulations were performed for the publication "Fatigue lifetime calculation of wind turbine blade bearings considering blade-dependent load distribution" in the Wind Energy Science Journal.
All results are available as .csv-files with images of the resulting load distributions in .png format. Contact forces are also available as a single .mat-file which can be read with MatLab. Definitions with the load cases and further information are available as .csv and .txt files, respectively.
