5th Technical Conference "Subsoil Analysis, Ground Improvement and Wind Turbine Foundations"

13.08.2014

... with simultaneous translation in case of sufficient demand

The new multi-megawatt wind energy converters (WECs) make very high demands on subsoil bearing capacity and on wind turbine foundations.


It is a fact, however, that soil conditions and load bearing capacities are often not sufficiently considered in the site selection of a new wind farm project.

We can reasonably expect savings when foundation design and ground improvement processes are optimised to suit site-specific conditions. 

Haus der Technik will address these issues at their 5th technical conference on "Subsoil Analysis, Ground Improvement and Wind Turbine Foundations" in Essen/GER on 20 and 21 November 2014. 

We will offer simultaneous translation during the conference, because there is an increasing interest in the conference topic especially from abroad. 

The objective of the technical conference is to convey a detailed overview of comprehensive soil investigation methods and appropriate subsoil improvement techniques, and how to choose the best foundation design for particular wind turbines. We will discuss geotechnical basics and present real-world case studies with a focus on the interaction between wind turbine design and type of foundation.

The conference is to enable participants to assess the geotechnical suitability of a site for the erection of a wind turbine and to design the required foundation. 

If you are interested in the full program, please contact Haus der Technik: Mrs. Andrea Wiese, phone: +49 (0)201-1803-0, mail: information@hdt-essen.de or online:

Im Focus: Nuclear Pores Captured on Film

Using an ultra fast-scanning atomic force microscope, a team of researchers from the University of Basel has filmed “living” nuclear pore complexes at work for the first time. Nuclear pores are molecular machines that control the traffic entering or exiting the cell nucleus. In their article published in Nature Nanotechnology, the researchers explain how the passage of unwanted molecules is prevented by rapidly moving molecular “tentacles” inside the pore.

Using high-speed AFM, Roderick Lim, Argovia Professor at the Biozentrum and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute of the University of Basel, has not only directly...

Im Focus: 2+1 is Not Always 3 - In the microworld unity is not always strength

If a person pushes a broken-down car alone, there is a certain effect. If another person helps, the result is the sum of their efforts. If two micro-particles are pushing another microparticle, however, the resulting effect may not necessarily be the sum their efforts. A recent study published in Nature Communications, measured this odd effect that scientists call “many body.”

In the microscopic world, where the modern miniaturized machines at the new frontiers of technology operate, as long as we are in the presence of two...

Im Focus: Tiny microbots that can clean up water

Researchers from the Max Planck Institute Stuttgart have developed self-propelled tiny ‘microbots’ that can remove lead or organic pollution from contaminated water.

Working with colleagues in Barcelona and Singapore, Samuel Sánchez’s group used graphene oxide to make their microscale motors, which are able to adsorb lead...

Im Focus: ORNL researchers discover new state of water molecule

Neutron scattering and computational modeling have revealed unique and unexpected behavior of water molecules under extreme confinement that is unmatched by any known gas, liquid or solid states.

In a paper published in Physical Review Letters, researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory describe a new tunneling state of...
