This is a Member only event rescheduled from the 10th February, specifically for members of the East Counties  branch. Other members may be able to attend should spaces become available.

Overview: This talk will focus on how the Arduino range of microcontrollers can be used to develop sensors for the oil and gas industry. These sensors can be utilised for a variety of Non-Destructive Testing types and Condition Monitoring systems, specially focusing on the Magnetic Flux Leakage technique.

Afnan’s system aims to provide a predictive analysis of defects, obtained from accurate real time data for changes observed in the geometry appearing within ferromagnetic structures.

The talk will briefly mention of problems with corrosion and how it is one of the leading causes of failure or premature deterioration of ferromagnetic structures. Then it will move on to speak about how monitoring of critical areas can be carried out remotely using a permanently installed condition monitoring system. Using Arduino microcontrollers and the ATMEGA chip family, the industry can benefit from saving energy, acquiring data remotely at set intervals, and reducing risks.

Speaker: Afnan Islam, PhD candidate, NSIRC.

Speaker Biography: Afnan attained his BEng in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Brunel University, London, before joining University College London where he completed his MSc in Nanotechnology.

Sponsored by Lloyd's Register Foundation, his PhD with London South Bank University aims at developing a cost-effective sensor using permanent magnets, for long term condition-monitoring of ferromagnetic structures.
