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 present our progress on this subject.



There was a different activity for us specially i will say about round tables with companies, academic experts, and other ESR to discuss our PhD subjects, presentations and poster which bridge the gap between academic research and industry research. During the discussion we can visualize theoretical and practical aspects of our research. 


Then meeting with Advisory Board was culminated in consensus around the most important scientific priorities on the content which make our research more reliable. 
And after that i found key illustration to this program is ‘learning’, in a particular way. We do not know the answers of our problem when we start to design, innovate or research. But ''Different Views find ways to cooperate'' So in a particular way this is kind of ''learning opportunities''.

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…
