Safe Operation of Offshore Wind Turbines

Enhancing service life and ensuring fatigue strength

Logo Safe Operation of Offshore Wind Turbines

Product description

BAM is researching the safe operation of offshore wind turbines in the project "Service life extension and service loading fatigue of wind turbines" (LeBeWind). The research is focusing on methods for reliable detection, localisation and evaluation of damage with the aim of ensuring service loading fatigue and extending the service life of wind turbines. The project team aims to develop damage detection and repair concepts that are efficient at sea. Therefore, BAM integrates its research competencies in civil engineering, materials engineering and materials science. Subprojects are devoted to the repair of rotor blades, corrosion protection by coatings, the connection of steel pipes by special mortar, and service loading fatigue of the drive train. Overarching topics are the determination and evaulation of current conditions, in particular non-destructive testing as well as prevention of possible damage.

RFID Sensors for Monitoring Structures

Embedded sensors in bridges sound an alarm when repairs are requiredread more


Acoustic and Fibre Optic Sensors

Pipeline systems in industrial facilities usually carry large amounts of gases or liquids over long distances. Due to the high flow rates, even the smallest leaks can cause damage to the environment and people resulting in high repair costs. The BAM project "Application of distributed acoustic and fibre more

Rapid Corrosion Test KorroPad

Stainless steel is covered by a protective chromium oxide layer, also called a passive layer. Due to errors in processing, the protective layer might not form everywhere on the surface, which could lead to local rust formation. BAM has developed a rapid colour indicator test to check the surface of stainless more

Safety of Transport Infrastructures

The BAM project "Safety of transport infrastructures" (SiVi) explores different scenarios for the emission of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in tunnels. At the BAM Technical Safety Test Site in Horstwalde near Berlin, BAM has set up a test facility with the dimensions of a tunnel structure which enables more
