Presented at: European Wind Energy Conference and Exhibition, Copenhagen, Denmark, 2-6 juli 2001.

In the paper the results are described of two projects which have been performed under the IEA R&D wind program: IEA Annex XIV ?Field Rotor Aerodynamics? and IEA Annex XVIII ?Enhanced Field Rotor Aerodynamics Database?. A total of 7 institutes participated in the Annexes. The objective of the Annexes was defined as the coordination of full scale aerodynamic test programs on wind turbines in order to acquire the maximum of data at the minimum of costs and to store the measurements into a database. In these full scale aerodynamic test programs local aerodynamic quantities (pressures, forces, inflow data) were measured at several radial positions along the blade.
