Pay Sackniess of ABS Group Presents at VDI Structural Dynamics Conference
For offshore wind turbines, management of asset integrity must consider a number of potential structural anomalies balanced with comprehensive but efficient inspection planning. Continuous monitoring of the fundamental eigenfrequency of the wind turbine support structures can provide the basis for early detection of potentially serious damage while also providing valuable data for analysis and mitigation.
The VDI (Association of German Engineers) is based in Düsseldorf, Germany and is the largest technical-scientific association in Germany with almost 150,000 members and is both a developer and disseminator of technological expertise.
