Turbine technology

When: Wednesday, 3 April 2019, 14:00 - 15:30
Where: Luxua 1

Session description

Attendees will see a broad variety of blade-related topics. From the design of long blades to the impact of manufacturing flaws and process simulation, authors from the industry will share their achievements and experiences. This is combined with presentations addressing applications of CFD to rain erosion test rigs and the use of alternative materials for new blade designs.
