4rd Technical Conference: Subsoil Analysis, Ground Improvement and Wind Turbine Foundations

09.10.2013
With simultaneous translation (German/English) and an enhanced exhibition profile.

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.

If you are interested in the full program, please contact Haus der Technik: Mrs. Andrea Wiese, phone: +49 (0)201-1803-0, mail: information@hdt-essen.de or online: http://www.hdt-essen.de/W-H010-11-734-3

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

Im Focus: Research icebreaker Polarstern begins the Antarctic season

What does it look like below the ice shelf of the calved massive iceberg A68?

On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...

Im Focus: Coping with errors in the quantum age

Physicists at ETH Zurich demonstrate how errors that occur during the manipulation of quantum system can be monitored and corrected on the fly

The field of quantum computation has seen tremendous progress in recent years. Bit by bit, quantum devices start to challenge conventional computers, at least...
