Glue not UFO caused turbine blade failure
Published Date: 18 April 2010
By David Leask
ENGINEERS have discovered that the giant turbine blade which plunged to the ground at a Scottish wind farm last month snapped off because of freak problems with the glue used to coat it – scotching theories it may have been hit by lightning or, as some even suggested, an unidentified flying object.
The catastrophic failure of the 150ft-long, 14-tonne blade at the Whitelees site near Eaglesham sparked global concerns about the safety of wind farm equipment.

But manufacturers Siemens, the German engineering company, said the blade broke off due to what it described as a one-off manufacturing fault in its outer coating.
not ball lightning? not even regular lightning? weren't there people who claimed they heard or saw something odd when this story broke?

Glue


I Really Dont Think Glue Was Cause For All That Damage.

I Did See Some Footage Once On One Of Them Home Video Programmes They Were Filming A Windmill In Holland That Had Lost Control.

The Brakes On The Windmill Failed Causing It Too Spin Out Of Control Until The Blades Eventually Buckeled Like The One In The Uk

Not a UFO story actually.
But brings up a good point.
Metals processes must make sure no holes or air bubbles are inside
to weaken the parts.
Yes this process was developed by Tesla as his parts would explode
under electrical pressures.
I recall one job for copper to eliminate air bubbles for wire perhaps
for the Guggenheims.

Your account has been frozen. the blade broke off duADVERTISEMENTe to what it described as a one-off manufacturing fault in its outer coating.

If a 14 ton blade falls in a forest and someone is there to hear it, I guess it DOES make a noise!

BTW reject, you wanna borrow my blowtorch to unfreeze your account?


And that's the oddest place for an advertisement I've seen, in the middle of a word!

Yeah, those darn pleiadeans, they're almost as bad as the gremlins!


I see you fixed it, looks great now!

Thanks and regards

Something else might cause the failure.
The glue.

Also any bubbles in the glue when hit by the Tesla waves of
and UFO/saucer/Tesla Flying Machine would be a cause for
an explosion perhaps.

Air bubbles in dielectrics are also susceptible to the heating effects
of rapid molecule vibrations.

The light surrounding the UFO is from air banging up against the
metal shell of the craft.

I hope we have all learned something today.
Your welcome.
