AbstractA rotor blade for a wind turbine includes a flange section configured to connect the rotor blade to a rotor hub. The flange section is formed from a hybrid material including glass fibers and carbon fibers embedded in a matrix material. The carbon fibers are oriented substantially parallel to a longitudinal axis of the rotor blade.
