Introduction

The Studio is intended to supports the EPSRC Centre for Through
-
life Engineering
Services. It is an integrated laboratory that can be managed with strict manufacturing
controls but is flexible enough to fulfil research requirements. The Studio is designed
to address a wide range of coupled whole system issues from material analysis for
maintenance and repair to process simulation and visualisation.


Technologies

The Studio provides instrumentation and facilities to perform experiments in
supporting all the EPSRC Centre projects. This includes the:


Environmental Test Chamber


Intermittent fault detection kit


Thermographic

imaging


Virtual Reality Suite

How does it work?

Stress

The lab features the use of a test chamber. It is an important tool for probing the influence of the
environment on the technology being used. The choice of environmental variables to regulate, along
with control tolerances, depend on the experimental objectives.


Chamber specs:

-
70 to 180 degrees C; at 10 degrees C /min

90% humidity


Intermittent Fault Detection

The
NCompass

is the state of the art
intermittent fault
detection and isolation
system. It aids in
determining
the root cause of electronic equipment
and
No
-
Fault Found (NFF) problems. The kit is
being
used to capture faults that other
traditional
test
equipment often fails to capture. It can aid in
:


Huge time savings for maintainers


Intermittent Fault Detection


Wiring Integrity testing and trending


Product Assurance of electronic integrity

Thermoscope

This
measurement and imaging technology is
being

used to
inspect component degradation, corrosion,

disbondings

and
delamination.

Virtual reality suite

The suite is being used to study system architecture
design
for engineering
services. Applications
are being
developed to visualise and link design rules
with
system
design. The facility allows users to carry out
their
tasks and
perform functions by exchanging
information
with computer systems in 2D
and
3D
space. Siemens
PLM

will extensively be used to visualise the
manufacturing process and life cycle mock up designs.
