Secondment and advance NDT&E training in BAM, Germany

Hi Everyone!

Here i am again!! 
I have started my secondment on 1st of July in BAM, Germany. Oh yes, ''A secondment is a name given to temporary work which is assigned to a researcher in a different area from which they are already working on the project''. As i am working in a European project (Infrastar) so I have to go for secondment to work with other ESR. That is the reason i am here (BAM). And i will be here for three months.
I was bit lucky when i came to BAM, because there was advance  NDT training workshop.
So i had a chance to participate this workshop. 
I have to say that it was an interesting experience, met lots of interesting people in BAM. Other engineers, researcher (working on NDT), which makes me happy to see such an interest in NDT testing. But mostly, the opportunity to hands on experience on sensor and measurement and discuss my work, reuniting some good comments, good contacts, that was great.
Here I am attending hands on NDT testing, still, need to train a bit more :) 
Hands on training at Horstwalde site.



At BAM, i am working with Xin (ESR 1) who is working on Ultrasonic sensor. And we are working on feature extraction from the ultrasonic sensor.But but !
  • What is the ultrasonic signal looks like?
  • What is the feature we can extract from the ultrasonic sensor?
........
Wait for next writing!!
Till then bye........

See you!!

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…

A architectural model that describes my Phd Goal

My task in the project is to integration of sensor and local signal procession. Now i will try to explain architectural model from system engineering approaches which will describe my Phd Goal.  Following the architectural model (AM), the AM diagram of a sensor integration is shown below. The diagram includes entity, aspects, requirements and functions of the sensor integration.


Consider a stakeholder, such as bridge contractor. They have an excessive amount of maintenance on bridges due to demands from fatigue safety and monitoring considerations. Because, bridges need to be maintained to identify of possible damage. And monitoring  is really costly because good monitoring needs ''good sensor'' which can give meaningful information. But in practise it is difficult to get meaningful information from one sensor, that is the reason sensor integration for monitoring system recognized as a significant problem. Three system elements related to the bending process are shown a…

One year experience of being an Early Stage Researcher (ESR)

Why i decided to become an Early Stage Researcher?I was working in an organization before becoming an ESR. I did my internship at Deutsche telekom, so i was aware of the industrial perspective of a research, and I wanted to accelerate my technical technological knowledge so that I could cope up with the theoretical and practical aspects of research. That is the reason, I applied for the ESR position, to add more knowledge content to my profile. This knowledge comes from beneficiaries and partner organizations involved in the program as well as the recruited ESRs. They are from different domains and countries. It makes the program multidisciplinary very dynamic and has good international disclosure. 
And during my first year, i had the impression that i was right. My host institution is Neostrain. And NeoStrain is a leading company in the measurement technologies for the construction industries in Poland. And i choose my host institution in an industry because it gives the perfect combi…
