This document contains some intermediate results obtained during the workcarried out within the framework of the so-called S and FAT project, standing for 'Strength and Fatigue Testing of Large Size Wind Turbine Rotors'. It was decided to issue this part of the work before the complete finalization of the project. Within the S and FAT working procedure the present results are covered in the interim documents: DOC-NOT-01: Statement on test specimen and on test rig; DOC-NOT-03: Consideration on the performance of static strength tests; and DOC-NOT-07: Considerations on the performance of natural vibration tests. These documents are individual documents, prepared as discussion papers, for the dissemination of intermediate progress and as work packages to be contained in the final report. Five different organisations from five European countries co-operated in the execution of the project, viz. for Denmark: Risoe National Laboratory; for Germany: Germanischer Lloyd; for Spain: Centro de Investigaciones Energeticas Medioambientales y Tecnologicas; for Sweden: Teknikgruppen AB; and for the Netherlands: Netherlands Energy Research Foundation ECN. It is noted that the content of this report is not equally endorsed by all partners working together in the S and FAT project. 5 figs., 6 tabs., 1 appendix
