Bilingual House the Technology Conference: towers and foundations for wind turbines – towers on foundations for wind energy converters for wind energy evolved into one the largest sources of renewable energy worldwide. But the construction of WTS involves not only an efficient, environmentally friendly power generation. To first of all need a reliable substructure to create for the ever-increasing wind turbines which is able to withstand the stress of storm and offshore also high waves. More and more wind turbines and the development towards the offshore make professionals in determining the load-bearing structures with new challenges. The two-day symposium on the 23rd and 24th February 2010 in the Haus der Technik in food provides University of Hannover under the direction of Prof. Dr. Peter Schaumann of the steel construction of the Leibniz Institute of knowledgeable insight into the different constructions, in investigations of the subsoil and Foundation calculations. Special topics here are shell stability, evidence of fatigue and constructive details of connections.
Practical experience are at the forefront of designs. Due to the high demand from abroad, the event with simultaneous translation will be offered. After attending the event participants have acquired the essential foundations for the design of onshore and offshore plants with full pipe Tower, hybrid tension concrete tower or tensioning concrete tower, as well as the foundations. In addition, they have acquired extensive knowledge to the prevention of damage to load-bearing structures.
