Blade mass in summary file of Elastodyn

Hi all,

can someone explain how the mass of the blade, that is output in ElastoDyn’s summary, is calculated?
I tried some different ideas taking the distributed and interpolated blade properties from the same summary as basis but without success.
(I’m using the latest version of OpenFAST with AeroDyn 15 and Elastodyn for Blades and Tower.)

Best regards,
