Training Course on Visualisation & quantification of tomographic datasets

13 - 14 June 2022

A 2 day training course covering theory and computer-based practical works using the Thermo Scientificâ„¢ Amira-Avizo Software. Lab/synchrotron X-ray tomography has emerged as one of the most important techniques for research in a wide range of applications including healthcare, energy, food and geology. Advances in the quality of X-ray beams,...

Training Course on Advanced Scripting and Batching of Tomographic Datasets

15 - 16 June 2022

Although X-ray tomography is an attractive characterisation technique in materials science, it generates a huge amount of data at a fast rate and it can be extremely time consuming to process the data manually. A great benefit to creating scripts and plugins in Avizo is the ability to reuse a workflow on more than one image or to develop a bespoke...

Humans In The Loop: The Future of Design and Digital Manufacturing

10:00 - 12:00 16 June 2022

We are hosting an exciting cross-theme event between the Digital Futures Human-Centred Design, Industry 5.0, and Employment & Productivity themes. As we move towards more sophisticated automation, it is increasingly important that everything we design has human understanding, behaviour and ethics at its centre. Researchers at the University are...

Training Course on In situ experiments and Digital Volume Correlation

05 - 06 July 2022

Digital Volume Correlation (DVC) is a powerful experimental technique that computes 3D full-field displacement and strain maps from volumes images acquired during a deformation process of a material. DVC is the 3D extension of Digital Image Correlation (DIC) which was first described four decades ago. The emergence of DVC started early 2000s with...
