White Wind: White Etching Cracks bearing failures in wind turbines

Objective:
Investigate WEC failure mode for gearbox bearings using load monitoring and modelling, materials modelling, surface treatments and laboratory WEC tests.

Expected outcome:
Gain insight into what load cases cause WEC and what the failure mechanism is. Be able to avoid WEC through new materials solutions.
