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.

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
