Blade Mechanics Seminar

The Blade Mechanics Seminar will be discontinued due to structural changes in industry and at the ZHAW.

The 23rd Blade Mechanics Seminar 2018 was the last of 10 Blade Mechanics Seminars organized  by the Institute of Mechanical Systems of the ZHAW.

Thanks to all who helped us to realize these 10 seminars by contributions, participation or sponsoring!

Seminar Organizer

ZHAW Zurich University of Applied Sciences

IMES Institute of Mechanical Systems

The IMES Institute of Mechanical Systems at the ZHAW School of Engineering deals intensively with questions of structural mechanics in the fields applied mechanics, biomechanical engineering and lightweight structures.

The section applied mechanics focusses on the analytical and experimental simulation of non-linear mechanical behaviour for the mechanical design of highly loaded components such as turbomachinery blades. Our expertise includes aspects like non-linear material behaviour, damage, thermo-mechanical loading, contacts as well as vibration and damping. Together with our partners from industry, we make a significant contribution to new design processes and products within applied research and development.
