Rotor Blades - Mainsprings of Wind Energy
International Conference on the Aerodynamics, Construction and Maintenance of Rotor Blades
The international conference on Wind Turbine Rotor Blades at Haus der Technik, Essen, will be held completely bilingual in German and English and provide a comprehensive overview of the subject matter pertaining to the complete lifespan 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.
The conference in Essen will be on 15 - 16 June 2010. The guest speaker will be Prof. John F. Mandell, Montana State University, an internationally distinguished expert on material fatigue and degradation in fibreglass constructions in wind turbines.
Lectures, under the chairmanship of Christoph Kensche (Hexion Specilaity Chemicals GmbH), will be given by eminent specialists who will combine theoretical observations with their longstanding repertoire of 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.
