Nano-modified Materials for Rotor Blades

The Institute of Structural Analysis (ISD) of Leibniz University Hannover, together with its six partners in the cooperative project Hannah, plans to harness the potential of nano-modified materials and hybrid laminates for industrial rotor blade applications. The durability and fatigue resistance of these material systems in particular is what sees them outperform currently established materials. The project was launched in March 2019 and is being funded with 3.3 million euros by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi). The Hannah project is embedded within the Research Alliance Wind Energy and part of the ForWind joint research initiative, which is the Center for Wind Energy Research of the Universities of Oldenburg, Hannover and Bremen. Project partners include DLR's Institute of Composite Structures and Adaptive Systems and the Fraunhofer IWES as well as companies such as...
