  10. 10. Inverse ProblemsSolving Linearised Inverse Problem: does not exist, as A is generally under-determined, i.e. not symmetrical
  11. 11. Inverse Problem with Tikhonov RegularisationSolving Inverse Problem: Regularisation Parameter
  12. 12. Imaging ResultImages are reconstructed using a linearised reconstructionmethod based on inversion of a sensitivity Jacobian matrixwith Tikhonov regularisation
  13. 13. More Imaging ResultSuitable for metallic object imaging! HY Wei, M Soleimani, A simple magnetic induction tomography system and the image reconstruction (Published: The 4th World Congress on Industrial Process Tomography)
  14. 14. Rotational MIT (RMIT)• Electrical Tomography – low imaging resolution• Coil array can be rotated with respect to the central axis• Better Image Quality with the same amount of sensors HY Wei, M Soleimani, Theoretical and experimental evaluation of rotational magnetic induction tomography (Accepted: IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON INSTRUMENTATION AND MEASUREMENT) No rotation: 28 One rotation: 28x2=56 Two rotations: 28x3=84 measurements measurements measurements

  18. 18. Pipeline Inspection• Pipeline Inspection is important in industry: – undiscovered damaged pipelines => huge operational cost + environmental disaster• Current Techniques – Non-destructive testing (NDT) – In-service testing: pipeline inspection gauges (PIG) – High Cost and Highly skilled technicians required
  19. 19. MIT in Pipeline Imaging• Low cost, but yet provide a satisfactory imaging• In-situ imaging
  20. 20. Narrow Band-pass MIT in Pipeline Imaging• Narrowband filtering is a technique that can increase the image quality at the area of interest Reconstructed Image Reconstructed Image without narrowband with narrowband filtering filtering
  21. 21. More narrowband filtering MIT result Damaged Tube with medium Hollow Tube openingwith no opening Damaged TubeDamaged Tube with large with small opening opening
  22. 22. 3D Industrial MIT - SimulationSensitivity Map
  23. 23. Movement of the centre of mass - ResultCopper bar Predefined Movement of the center of pattern mass extracted from the image reconstructions
  24. 24. Movement of the centre of mass (Simulated Result)Woods metalphantom Movement of the centre of mass extracted from the image reconstructions
  25. 25. Flow Imaging Result Aluminium cone- shaped phantom Reconstructions of the boundaries for every 2 consecutive images Reconstructions of the boundaries for every 2 consecutive images
  26. 26. Conclusion• MIT is a suitable technique for conductive material imaging and NDT testing• Low cost• Image quality can enhance further by implementing different measuring techniques or reconstruction algorithms• Satisfactory Imaging Result• Close to commercialisation state
