LUT and Aurelia Turbines earn Honorable Mention for research paper

A group of LES researchers together with their corporate partner Aurelia Turbines Ltd were awarded Honorable Mention for their paper "A Case Study of the Contact Force and Stress in the Backup Bearing of a Generator: Experimental Study and Numerical Simulation of Dropdown" at the IFToMM  (International Coference on Rotordynamics). The team consisted of researchers from Machine Dynamics (Neda Neisi, Behnam Ghalamchi, Janne E Heikkinen, Jussi Sopanen), Electrical Engineering (Teemu Sillanpää) and Aurelia Turbines (Toni Hartikainen)

IFToMM carries 40 years of tradition in the research of rotordynamics, and is held every 4th year. The 2018 conference was held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in September. At this year's conference there were 153 papers presented, eight of which earned the honorable mention.
