Activity at IFE Wind Energy: numerical modeling of offshore wind turbines
IFE (Institutt for Energiteknikk) is a research center located in Kjeller. The wind group at IFE mainly works with the development and analysis of new cost effective concepts for offshore wind energy, both concerning innovative rotor designs and new concepts for substructures. The group main investigation tool is the in-house software 3DFloat, an aero-elastic code which can simulate the whole wind turbine structure when exposed to the associated environmental loads (wind loads, hydrodynamic loads, soil loads if bottom-fixed).
In the presentation, an insight into the wave kinematics and wave loads modeling tools that are currently included in 3DFloat will be provided.
Tom Gunning (University of Chicago) and filmmaker Paul Kaiser will discuss moving images that shift from the frame of classical cinema to the immersive framelessness and interactivity of virtual reality. The program includes the premiere of the Norwegian 3D film UIysses in the Subway (2016)
The seminar is canceled due to sickness.
Anthropologist Dr. Carol Berger will give a guest lecture on sexualised violence in South Sudan and review the strategies of western humanitarian interventions to prevent such gender-based violence.
