A report from a 2016 Research Award-winning project.

Dr Stylianos Yaitros and Professor Brennan of Cranfield university partnered with Ramboll to perform vibration testing of steel foam sandwich components, explored new applications for this material which can both absorb vibrations and mitigate buckling improving fatigue life.

This pilot study had the intention to lead to further research and development of multifunctional wind turbine stiffeners.
