3rd International Conference on Rotor Blades for Wind Turbines

06.05.2011
Rotor blades are the core of wind turbines. They determine the maximum of energy that can be harvested from the wind.

Their full functionality and security against fatigue and degradation has to be designed and assured for a service life of at least twenty years. Meanwhile, keeping pace with the rapidly developing market, rotor blade size is steadily increasing particularly in view of the off-shore operations.


In order to meet the requirements within the framework of design, development and construction of rotor blades, a comprehensive knowledge of the specific essentials, e.g. of the outer and inner stresses and strains, computing and evaluation methods, and material capability and performance characteristics is imperative. Durable construction and optimised production technologies, therefore, are just as indispensable prerequisites for long service intervals, as are the new and yet to be developed systems for structural health monitoring (SHM) as well as the identification and elimination of mistakes.

Increasingly, new techniques of automated production are also coming into focus. Only so will will it be possible to produce the required quantities of requisite quality.

The 3rd International Conference on Wind Turbine Rotor Blades at Haus der Technik, Essen, will provide a comprehensive overview of the subject matter pertaining to the complete life-span of a rotor blade from computing and evaluation methods, material capability and performance characteristics, to aerodynamics and optimised production technologies as well as structural health monitoring (SHM), maintenance, recycling and disposal. New at the third conference will be the parallel sessions on the second day, which will engage themselves with such themes as the production and automation of rotor blades, structural health monitoring (SHM), rotor blades failure and damage, and their repairs and maintenance. The conference will be held in Essen on 28-29.06.2011. As in the previous year Haus der Technik again expects about 200 delegates.

Distinguished specialists with top expertise, under the co-chairmanship of Christoph Kensche (Momentive Speciality Chemicals GmbH) and Dr. Trappe (Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung- und Prüfung / Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing), will present their theoretical observations within the context of their long-standing practical experience. The conference is aimed at developers, constructors, manufacturing engineers and technicians of the manufacturers, as well as personnel from operators and public utilities, insurance companies, banks and other experts and specialists. The conference will be completely bilingual in German and English.

Detailed conference programme is available from Haus der Technik, tel. +49.(0)201.1803 344 (Ms Sabine Gebauer), email information@hdt-essen.de or at http://www.hdt-essen.de/htd/veranstaltungen/W-H010-06-343-1.html

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
