The renewable marine energies (RME) as tidal turbines offer considerable potential. The majority of tidal turbine developers have preferred carbon or a combination between glass and carbon blades. These structures are subject to many forces such as ocean tides, waves, storms. Despite of such complex loads, tidal turbine blade are also subject to various marine aggressions, such as sea water and corrosion. A thorough understanding of the long term behavior of the moving parts is therefore essential. There is a need to understand how long immersion in the ocean affects these composites.
