16:00 - 16:10 General Q&A (see below)
16:10 CLOSE of PART 1

PART 2 CIU MEMBERS ONLY (separate second link has been emailed to members)
16:10 - 16:45 NEW IP from CIU
Steve Dixon will give CIU members first sight of some developments in CIU research that has generated new Intellectual Property, that may be of interest to CIU members - sharing the new developments in IP and instrumentation, covering areas such as:
  • Low cost ultrasonic anemometry.
  • High power, portable EMAT guided wave NDT with Lorentz force EMATs and magnetostrictive patches.
  • Clamp-on, ultrasonic flow measurement in thin walled, small diameter pipes, and miniature clamp-on transducers.

General Q&A session - in which attendees will be able to privately message CIU team members or ask an open question

We will endeavour to deal with as many of questions as possible on the day, but provided that you email the person concerned, they will get back to you as soon as they can if they do not get chance to get back to you on the day.

If you wish to ask a question to a CIU team member, then please email them the question and they will attempt to call you via Microsoft Teams to discuss after they have dealt with the previous question.

* Dr Andrew Feeney is a former CIU PDRA and a visiting academic who continues to work closely with the CIU, who now has a lecture post at the University of Glasgow

** Dr Lei Kang is a former CIU PDRA and a visiting academic who continues to work closely with the CIU, who now has a lecture post at the University of Portsmouth
