So far, around 30,000 wind turbines (WT) have been installed in Germany, and the trend is still rising. To protect bats and birds, operators must in many cases implement shutdown algorithms to reduce mortality. Risks are posed by a possible collision with the rotor blades or, especially in the case of bats, due to barotrauma...

The Journal of Sound and Vibration (impact factor of 3.429 in 2019) publishes our article on ultrasonic data transmission across metal structures affected by environmental conditions.   Abstract: Variable environmental conditions present a major hurdle for Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) systems which involve the signal processing of Ultrasonic Guided Waves (UGW). Two important cases of...
