Central topics of the Colloquium will be the description of the atmospheric turbulent wind condition on different time scales, and the interaction of wind turbines with wind and water flows, which determine the turbine design, operation and maintenance. Topics of particular interest include:
  • wind climate & wind field
  • gusts, extreme events & turbulence
  • rotor aerodynamics & wake effects
  • sea states & wave loads
  • materials (composites, steel, concrete) & fatigue
  • structural health monitoring

The aim of this EUROMECH colloquium is to bring together scientists and engineers from academic institutions and industry from all over Europe actively doing fundamental or applied research in the described fields of wind energy. The colloquium will be informal in character, without parallel sessions, and the number of participants will be limited. This will provide the basis for intensive discussions of the participants’ current research and for successful mutual exchange.
