Who am I?


It will please some of you to know that who am I! it will please the rest of you to know that why I choose to pursue a Ph.D.?

My name is Joyraj Chakraborty, seems some Asian name! Hmm!! Yes, I am from Chittagong, Bangladesh. I completed my Master’s degree majoring in radio communication Engineering from Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH), Sweden and undertook an internship at Deutsche Telecom in the customer equipment department. Before joining Infrastar project (10th February 2017), I worked as a scientific research engineer at KU Leuven, in Belgium from 2014 to 2015, developing an acoustic sensor localization for an unknown sound source.
Drive for research is the best reason to start my Ph.D.  I have experienced a sense of excitement while working on a project of my own during working as a scientific researcher at KULEUVEN, where I enjoy the opportunity to focus on a problem of cutting-edge research. The rewards of contributing to advance knowledge in any given area can be amazing. 

My PhD topic is ''Sensor integration, data fusion and information management for industrial monitoring systems''. doing my Ph.D. thesis in Neostrain, Krakow, Poland.
So what I will do?
The first step in the development of a Structural health monitoring system is mentioned to as operational evaluation.  Operational evaluation tries to answer the main question regarding the implementation of a damage detection capability:

  • How to develop meaningful and reliable means of acquiring, guiding, integrating and interpreting structural performance data for maximum useful information at a minimum cost?

  • So I will answer this question to integrate the sensor. Data integration is the process of combining information from multiple sensors in an effort to improve the integrity of the damage detection process.  In many feature selection processes is the integration of data from multiple sensors and fixation of these data. Suitable examples of data integration are the extraction of mode feature from sensor arrays and the averaging of the spectral amount to remove noise from the measurements.

    As I am in this EU project, I have to work with other ESRs (Early stage researchers). Mostly with the ESRs from Work Package 1 ( I will take the ultrasonic data from Xin WANG (ESR1) and fibre optics data from Antoine (ESR2) and integrate this data .
    But but !
    • What are the limitations on acquiring data in the operational environment?
    Wait for next writing!!
    Till then bye........

    Conference and technical visit at Østerild

    I am so glad to share with you the amazing experience of participating in my first conference in this project!
    Technical system degradation conference - took place in liptovsky mikulas which are the military academy in Slovakia, between 04/04/18 and 07/04/18. The event was quite challenging for me since it was almost fully in polish. 
    Here is my poster:

    "I realized this morning that your event content is the only event related 'stuff' I still read. I think that's because it's not about events, but about the coming together of people to exchange ideas and learn from one another and that's valuable information for anyone." — Traci Browne I also learn from some presentations in the different technical system and interesting discussions which push me to think in a different way!
    The conference is not only about work, it gives us a chance to meet different people. Here are some snaps:

    I got the opportunity to visit the national test center for large wind turbines at…

    Gliwice bridge over Klodnica River

    Hello Everyone!Post about SHM of wonderful Gliwice bridge over Klodnica River 😊.A first-class infrastructure is an inevitable factor for economic growth. Bridges have a key position in this infrastructure system. Its functional failure or collapse has significant economic and financial consequences. For this reason, it is important to regularly monitor the current bridge condition, and derive estimates of the remaining service life. This ensures a safe and economically sensible use for existing structures. For this purpose, The research is conducted on the real bridge within DTS (Silesian Central Motorway) in Gliwice (Shared object for INFRASTAR project), which is instrumented with various sensors. The location of the bridge is illustrated in Figure below.  The sensors were install by NeoStrain in the construction during the erection works.

    It is located along the Katowice - Gliwice Route within DTS (Silesian Central Motorway). The purpose is to overcome an obs…

    How can triangulation make your research more reliable!!

    Hi Again,
    Effective research is the outcome of communication. Discussing with others is more efficient compare to our lonely struggle with the material. It is really important to talk with others about our work,in addition to spending a good amount of time for reading, writing, and conducting experiments, because this will provide quicker and better solutions to problems that we may encounter. And specially if it's industry people, experts then we can see the practical aspects of our research.
    The first INFRASTAR implementation day was held at the Federal Highway Research Institute (BASt) in Bergisch Gladbach, Germany. The main aim was inviting companies, administrations, local authorities, academic experts, policy makers, research scientists, engineers in order to discuss INFRASTAR research progress of Work Package 1- Monitoring and Asculation. As i am one of the four PhD students who is working on this subject, and we pr…
