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''.

A Successful Scientific Night

On Saturday, October 14, The Silesian University of Technology held its 12th edition of Scientific Night - The Art of Science. I participated the art of science and showed some scientific experiment. The NeoStrain families also participated in science night activities. NeoStrain came with a crack measurement scale and snow monitoring system. And we had a demonstration of body weight application by using two strain gauge sensor in the bridge and detecting the speed of the hitting to the board application using the accelerometer. The speed of the hitting on the Board application: We can detect the speed of the ball throwing on some object using basic physic of Accelerometer.  Speed or velocity comprises of two things if some objects travel at a known distance in a known amount of time this is known as velocity.

So acceleration is how much something increases has velocity over time. We have used HS-100 Accelerometer from Handsford Sensor and it was plugged into the throwing board (picture belo…

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…

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 tra…
