Preparing an Existing Diesel Power Plant for a Wind Hybrid Retrofit

There are many reasons why diesel power systems are so widespread. Diesel generators are by far the lowest capital cost electric generation technology in the sub-MW size range. They are a well-established and well-understood technology and there is a Continue reading

Design of a Double Cantilever Beam Test Specimen and Fixture for Kink Band Formation in Unidirectional Fibre Reinforced Composites.

Composite materials are widely used in demanding applications in aerospace and other industries. In order to understand the complex behaviour of the composite materials and their components, standardised test methods are used. One example is the double cantilever beam (DCB) test in which the Continue reading
