**Vortex-induced vibrations & wind turbines**

Aeroelastic instabilities and vortex-induced vibrations can appear on wind turbine blades at stand still. Negative (CL-a) slope a~90o triggers Aeroelastic instabilities Large vortex structures trigger Vortex induced vibrations Du96-w-180: Skrzypiński et al, DTU 2012

**Conclusions The double wake model has been successfully applied**

The cut-off length acts as calibration parameter. Good results were obtained for relatively large values Lock-in was detected at the shedding frequency corresponding to T~10. The positive feedback between the lock-in phenomenon and the structural vibration is found to be the main reason for the vortex induced aero-elastic instability.
