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: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...

Im Focus: A space-time sensor for light-matter interactions

Physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (run jointly by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics) have developed an attosecond electron microscope that allows them to visualize the dispersion of light in time and space, and observe the motions of electrons in atoms.

The most basic of all physical interactions in nature is that between light and matter. This interaction takes place in attosecond times (i.e. billionths of a...
