Trend to huge towers for wind turbines continues. Now everyone knows: great hub heights for wind energy installations increase the yield. Height limits and other restricting be increasingly questioned. Great hub heights open but also new stand cake like for locations in the forest. The dimensions of the towers of modern wind turbines are often aware, one standing in front of it. The foundations beneath the Earth are larger then again many times. Wear but also loads of some several hundred tons and that, at an altitude of 140 metres and more.
A secure frame, which is able to withstand the changing loads of storm, Frost and moisture, is it absolutely necessary. More and more wind turbines provide the experts in determining the load-bearing structures with new challenges. The importance of these issues reflects the 7th meeting towers and foundations for wind turbines on the 25th-26th February 2014 in the Haus der Technik in food again. The Conference provides expertise in the different constructions, building ground investigations and Foundation calculations. Special topics there are shells stability, evidence of fatigue and constructive details of connections. Both influences such as evidence for towers and foundations of wind Turbines be amended by updating the DIBt policy WT and presented during this event.
Even offshore structures and wooden constructions are treated at the meeting. A post about the logistics of constructing a tower is requested. The event will take place in cooperation with the Leibniz University of Hanover. The Conference is headed by Prof. Dr. Peter Schaumann from the Institute for steel construction of the Leibniz University of Hanover.
