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 4th technical conference on "Subsoil Analysis, Ground Improvement and Wind Turbine Foundations" in Essen/GER on 21 and 22 November 2013.
We will - for the second time - 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.

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,...
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...
