Online Seminar of the Fraunhofer WKI: "Thermography on Rotor Blades"

24.02.2015

Thermography on rotor blades is in the focus of the 29th webinar of the Fraunhofer Institute for Wood Research WKI on March 24, 2015. The online seminar at 2.00 p.m. will be held in english language.

Hidden defects in rotor blades of wind energy turbines can cause huge economic losses and, in the worst case of a breaking blade, threaten human lives. Consequently, the detection of structural anomalies in rotor blades should have the first priority.

Today however, most blades leave production without proper quality control. Moreover, possible damages by transport and assembly are not inspected sufficiently.

WKI's research activities have focussed on methods for detecting defects in rotor blades since many years. Of particular importance are the passive and the active infrared thermography. In such a way, defects such as delaminations, defective adhesive joints, dry laminates, ingress of moisture, but also wrinkles could be detected in many blades.

The webinar comprises the complete field of defect detection in rotor blades by means of thermography. An introduction into the technique of passive and active thermography is followed by a discussion of current problems in rotor blades and their non-destructive detection with the help of many examples.

The webinar will close with an outlook on possible future developments.

Im Focus: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.

Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...

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...
