VIV Symposium 2024 - Vortex- Induced Vibrations on wind turbine support structure and more

The Institute of Wind Engineering and Fluid Mechanics of the Ruhr-University Bochum, in cooperation with Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, is conducting a DFG research project to investigate and promote knowledge transfer on aeroelastic phenomena on wind turbine towers.

Using full-scale measurements of wind pressures and tower response on wind turbine tower prototypes in Østerild, the ongoing research aims to address and further establish the knowledge of vortex-induced vibration (VIV) and Reynolds number disparity. The collaboration is also looking at the interference effects of wind turbine towers in groups. The investigations lead to potential new approaches which may be considered for certification of onshore and offshore wind turbines.

In line with the objectives and the research work program, we are pleased to invite you to a comprehensive workshop and seminar to elaborate, discuss and exchange knowledge for the further development of wind energy.
