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: It’s All in the Mix: Jülich Researchers are Developing Fast-Charging Solid-State Batteries

There are currently great hopes for solid-state batteries. They contain no liquid parts that could leak or catch fire. For this reason, they do not require cooling and are considered to be much safer, more reliable, and longer lasting than traditional lithium-ion batteries. Jülich scientists have now introduced a new concept that allows currents up to ten times greater during charging and discharging than previously described in the literature. The improvement was achieved by a “clever” choice of materials with a focus on consistently good compatibility. All components were made from phosphate compounds, which are well matched both chemically and mechanically.

The low current is considered one of the biggest hurdles in the development of solid-state batteries. It is the reason why the batteries take a relatively long...

Im Focus: New interactive machine learning tool makes car designs more aerodynamic

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.

When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....
