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…

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…
