[Master Internship] Sizing of a NES (Nonlinear Energy Sink) passive absorber for the reduction of wind turbine structural dynamic loads

The aim of this study is the sizing of a passive mechanical system for the reduction of the rotor induced vibration, and consequent dynamic loads, in the tower of a wind turbine. The R&D activity on this subject derives from a collaboration between the LMA and Ideol. It will consist in both experimental and numerical studies.

The detailed subject is available in attachment.

Expected skills: basic notions in structural dynamics, interest for experimental setups, interest for programming using Mathematica or Matlab langages

Location: Mainly at LMA, Technopole de Château-Gombert, Marseille, France
