Graduate engineer presenting paper at IMAC-XXXIII conference Share this article

As part of her PhD, Ozak Esu, Graduate Engineer, has written a paper on ‘Static Calibration of Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) Accelerometers for In-situ Wind Turbine Blade Condition Monitoring’ which has been accepted for an oral presentation in the upcoming IMAC-XXXIII Conference and Exposition on Structural Dynamics.

The IMAC-XXXIII Conference will take place from the 2-5 February 2015 at the Rosen Plaza Hotel in Orlando, Florida USA. The IMAC has become a comprehensive meeting on a broad spectrum of technologies related to structural dynamics. The conference links a technical agenda including short courses, tutorial and technical paper sessions, with an exposition that features a wide variety of products and services related to structural dynamics.

Ozak will present her paper on Tuesday 3rd February 2015 at 9am. The paper outlines the procedure for least square static calibration of inexpensive Microelectromechanical Systems accelerometers identified and instrumented for detecting and measuring changes in natural frequency (key information useful for condition monitoring) of a 4.5m long wind turbine blade. Her presentation will be followed by seven other students who will also be presenting their papers on the over-arching theme of Turbine Blades.

Her attendance at the conference is fully funded by the research office at Loughborough University. Ozak will be taking a week off to attend the conference and we are delighted to support her achievement by splitting 50% of her time at the conference as practice-paid downtime.

As part of our ‘thought leadership’ agenda, we encourage our young engineers to take advantage of opportunities like this. For further information on Cundall’s thought leadership agenda, please contact Andrew Parkin.
