When Art Meets Tuberculosis

The iGEMThessaly team organizes an event titled "When Art Meets Tuberculosis", which will be held at the Thessaly Theater in The Mill of Pappas in Larissa, on Thursday, May 9, at 20:00.
The iGEM Thessaly 2019, is the first multidisciplinary team of the University of Thessaly, established and operating in order to participate in the International Synthetic Biology Competition iGEM, to be held in October in Boston, USA. Our vision is to establish a test for the timely diagnosis of tuberculosis, that could be applied to the refugee camps in the country, aiming at alleviating the humanitarian crisis.

Mechanically-Lined Pipes for Deep-Water Hydrocarbon Pipeline Applications

Spyros A. Karamanos Professor of Mechanical Engineering, University of Thessaly, Volos, Greece Professor & Chair of Structural Engineering, The University of Edinburgh, Scotland, UK Wednesday 22/5/2019, Time:13:00 Room A2, Civil Engineering Department

Abstract: Mechanically-lined pipes are promising solutions for energy pipeline applications (oil & gas) to resist internal pipe corrosion; a corrosion-resistant thin-walled liner is fitted inside a carbon-steel outer pipe. The paper focuses on wrinkling of mechanically-lined pipes, which are candidates for deep offshore pipeline applications, in depths that often exceed 1,500 meters. In particular, they are used in reeling applications, where severe bending loading conditions occur, associated with bending strains up to 2% during spooling the pipe around the reel. Τhe liner pipe is laterally confined due to the outer carbon steel pipe and this interaction between the liner and the outer pipe has a decisive influence on the bending behavior of the thin-walled liner. The problem is solved numerically, using advanced finite element tools, which simulate the lined pipe and its interaction with the outer pipe. Stresses, strains and local buckles are monitored throughout the deformation stage with emphasis on possible detachment of the liner from the outer pipe and the formation of wrinkles at the compressive zone of the liner pipe. The influence of manufacturing process on the values of curvature at which liner wrinkling occurs are determined. The numerical results are compared successfully with available experimental data.

Offshore wind energy

Abstract: The offshore wind industry is the fastest growing renewable energy sector worldwide. Offshore Wind Turbines (OWT) are superior compared to onshore turbines as they are specifically designed and installed to exploit the huge wind potential in the open sea. It is very important that their installation away from residential areas increases social acceptance. New offshore wind investments in Europe reached ~€18bn in 2016 and ~€8bn in 2017 corresponding to new capacity financed ~18GW and ~8GW respectively. However, OWT technology develops dynamically with new concepts realized aiming to exploit the clean and increased wind potential in the open ocean. Floating wind turbines and hybrid energy systems constitute the next frontier toward the vast energy resources in the marine environment.
