Non-Destructive Testing and Condition Monitoring Techniques in Wind Energy looks at the complex and critical components of energy assets and the importance of inspection and maintenance to ensure their high availability and uninterrupted operation. Presenting the main concepts, state-of-the-art advances and case studies, this book approaches the topic by considering it as an integral part of the overall operation of any wind energy project. Linking the essential NDT subject with its sub disciplines, the book uses computational techniques, dynamic analysis, probabilistic methods, and mathematical optimization techniques to support analysis of prognostic problems with defined constraints and requirements. This book is the first of its kind and will provide useful insights to industrial engineers and scientists, academics and students in the possibilities that NDT and condition monitoring technologies can offer.
