Wind energy is a low-carbon and resource-efficient sustainable technology and has seen rapid growth in the past decade. However, wind turbines are large, flexible structures with complex systems that work under very complicated environmental conditions. They suffer from cyclic loadings and vibrations which cause severe fatigue damage to the structure, reducing the structural service life and increasing the operation and maintenance cost. The further development of technologies to estimate and mitigate the fatigue damage of wind turbines needs proper experimental and numerical analysis and field assessment.
This Special Issue invites contributions that address fatigue problems in wind turbines. In particular, articles that describe new methodologies, analytical and numerical tools, and field test methods dealing with engineering problems are equally encouraged for publication. Potential topics include but are not limited to:
- Wind, wake, and wave effects
- Fatigue management by wind farm control
- Fatigue mitigation by model predictive control
- Data-driven/AI method
- Fatigue damage measurement
- Residual fatigue lifetime estimation
- Local fatigue crack analysis
- Fatigue properties of wind turbine material

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Machines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
