FAST: Bending moments against Blade length

Hello Everybody,

Recently I have downloaded FAST and other design codes and started using the same. I am interested to know where [which output file] I can get the bending moment of the blade against lenth of the blade. From this we can calculate the centrated test loads may be at 3 or 4 locations [which will simulate the equivalent design bending moment]. And same can be used for static testing of the blade.

Can anyone help me in this regards?

Thanks & regards,

Dear Shankar,

If you look at the possible output parameters in the back of the FAST manual, you will find that you can put virtual strain gages at various user-specified points along the blade.
