HMS "the expert's voice" networks intends to give impression of how broad the cases can spread if aerodynamics, fibre re-inforced polymer material science, structural optimization and maintenance and overhaul in aviation and wind turbine will be the issue. Independance is our credo in root cause analysis of catastrophic damages, production supervision and approval of repair and certification standards is the focus.

What is essential to improve blade lifetime?
What is your opinion? How can we have best influence to improve blade lifetime?
:1: improve design?
:2: improve production technologies/quality management?
:3: improve maintenance and overhaul?
:4: improve terms of storage and transportation?
:5: improve inspection and blade accessment/on-site NDT method?
:6: improve meteorological prognosis?
:7: improve or develop realtime load measuring/managing and condition monitoring systems?How do you feel we can improve - what is your experience? Do not hesitate to comment.
Frequently asked question about automatic blade inspections
These days I receive numerous mails and phone calls pointing out there is a new automatic blade inspection device available.
“Do you know this robotic system?” they ask. Yes, but …
From time to time you may find breaking news about putative brilliant inventions to solve the necessary blade inspections without the needs of a human inspector. Fantastic ideas are presented and spread out full-bodied across mainstream media. I don’t mind if this information is precise and do not keep quiet about the fact that this is based on academic style pipe dreams, chimeras to win project sponoring and not worth to deal with it. I even don’t mind the fact originators have to suffer in their upcoming insomnia which may develop to a full-grown nightmare when the truth was made public. It is for sure that top-ranking scientific institutes may suffer the loss of their reputation playing around like this.
Sorry, I don’t care.
