Senior Engineer, ESM Energie- und Schwingungstechnik Mitsch GmbH
Dr. Karl-Heinz Hanus has been working for more than 16 years within the wind turbine industry. Furthermore, he has more than 30 years of experience in vibration technology. He holds a PhD in Physics. Apart from strong skills in the design and process technology of rubber components, he also has expert knowledge in the assessment and improvement of the fatigue and ultimate strength behaviour of rubber elements.
Dr. Lukas Schneider has been working for more than 7 years within the wind turbine industry. He holds a PhD in engineering. In his studies of applied mechanics he focused on elasticity, continuum mechanics and multiphase flow. In the wind industry his objective is the prevention of wind turbine vibrations in all critical frequency ranges (mainly noise and tower vibrations). He brings together the theoretical, computational and measurement knowledge to design optimal products against wind turbine vibrations.
