The shot peening technique is used for the surface modification of metallic components that are part of wind turbines, such as gears, bolts and blade coatings to prevent erosion. An important parameter of this technique is the dynamic energy of emitted shots. In this context the objective of this project is to present a proof of concept measurement method for the evaluation of the speed of the shots. A remote sensing laser anemometer was selected as a probing instrument of the peening shots’ speed since it avoids any disturbances to the flow from the presence of an in-situ instrument. Furthermore, the risk of damaging the peening machine by installing an instrument inside the chamber during operation is eliminated
by this approach. Laser anemometers are being researched and developed in the department of Wind Energy, mainly in the framework of the WindScanner.dk infrastructure project , but also validated and used in monitoring the wind conditions around wind turbines (wake and inflow), over complex terrain as well as offshore.
