The study presents the design of wind turbine blade for overcoming the restrictions of the gigantic sizes that impede the onshore multi-megawatt wind turbines deployment. The road design and terrain beside the truck capabilities represent the main barrier to maneuver the blade though the voyage from factory to windy site. The natural finger and the Fibonacci sequence inspire the researcher to design a new blade. The augmented maneuverability of this concept aids to transport the blade. The study focuses on the aerodynamic design of 1.5MW conventional blade and modifies the skin and the spar to carry out this aim. The ability to fold is the extra attributes that provide it to maneuver and avoid terrain-road restrictions or upgrade the truck. The study simulates this attribute by using finite element method and investigates the effect of this modification on the blade.
