This paper presents an analysis of measurements which have been taken in the EU project Mexico (Model Rotor Experiments In Controlled Conditions). In the Mexico project a large number of European research institutes and universities cooperated. The project resulted in a database of measurements on a 3 bladed 4.5 m diameter wind turbine model placed in the LLF tunnel (with a 9.5 by 9.5 m2 open test section) of DNW in the Netherlands. Pressure and load measurements on the blade have been carried out simultaneously with stereo PIV flow field measurements.
