The hub of a wind turbine rotor is excited by time-varying forces and moments from the blades caused by extemal dynamic loads such as wind loading and aeroelastic effects. The paper describes how reliability-based fatigue analysis can be made based on SN-curves and how reliability-based inspection plans can be made.
