Wind turbines are exposed to frequent structural damage increasing the cost of wind energy generation. To drive these costs down, this project will develop new automated methods for detection of structural damage to wind turbines by examining vibration responses measured by sensors attached to the structure.
The impact of liquefied natural gas (LNG) with the walls of its containing tank and the impact of droplets with very hot surfaces are two examples of liquid-solid impacts in which the liquid may be close to thermodynamic equilibrium with the surrounding gas/vapour.
