Quality matters - measuring sunlight spectral content for solar energy applications
The objective of this workshop is to impart knowledge about statistical evaluation of cylinder test data and their interpretation with respect to safety assessment. Essentials, which will be introduced and elaborated, are:
- Influence of test parameters on test results including scatter from non-controlled test parameters
- basics about degradation investigated by cycle and burst testing
- basics of statistics and its use in evaluation of test data
- basics of safety assessment by using statistics.
November/December 2014, 1.5 to 2 days, (exact date still to be defined)
The proposed workshop focuses on methods to characterise the mechanical properties of materials and components by experimental and numerical means.
This workshop, with a special focus on plasticity and creep at different length scales, addresses physics-based models at different length and time scales and associated experimental research to understand material properties.
