Bolts for slip resistant joints in towers for wind turbines
2012 (English)In: Proceedings of the METNET Seminar 2012 in Izmir: Metnet Annual Seminar in Izmir, Turkey, on 10 - 11 October 2012 / [ed] Kuldeep Virdi; Lauri Tenhunen, Hämeenlinna, Finland: HAMK University of Applied Science , 2012, 31-39 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
This paper deals with a new solution to connect various segments in a tubular steel tower for wind power plants. Tests are performed to determine appropriate bolts for such connections. They focus on checking the development of pretension forces in the bolts during a period of one week. The behaviour of four different types of bolts is described and evaluated. For one type of bolt the force reduction is monitored for two different clamping lengths. Finally, recommendations for further tests are given.
