Hello, I just started using FAST to find the aerodynamic loads, then I will do a dynamic analysis in SAP2000. However, I am trying to find any details of the structure thickness of the airfoil and how it is changing along the blade. Could you provide me any data? Thank you in advance.
I think the following links could be useful to you.

I don’t believe that the NREL 5 MW turbine blade properties are based on manufactured blades, but are representative of a typical blade that length. The Sandia report presents a blade structure that was created to match the existing blade properties. The forum topic covers a similar discussion.
Hope this help,
Thank you very much Kieran for your quick response!
