    ANDRAWUS, J. A. et al., 2006. The selection of a suitable maintenance strategy for wind turbines. Wind Engineering, 30 (6), pp. 471-486
    Common maintenance strategies applied to wind turbines include ‘Time-Based’ which involves carrying out maintenance tasks at predetermined regular-intervals and ‘Failure- Based’ which entails using a wind turbine until ...
  • Structure, strength and defect characterisation of cement based materials. 

    Choudhury, Ajmol H. (Robert Gordon University School of Engineering, 2014)
    In cement based systems, the residual stresses are created by internal expansion. This provides toughening by the release of the residual stresses as the macro-crack propagates. While circumstantial evidence of the residual ...
