    MRI Scanner’s Vibration Isolation: Experimental Measurements, Analysis Techniques and Analytical Models2017Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Modern Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanners employ techniques for faster switching of currentsin the gradient coils. The aim is to improve the imaging quality and/or shorter scanning time at thecost of further escalating the associated vibration and noise excited by the Lorentz forces in the gradientcoil. These developments necessitate the employment of effective vibration isolation measures, both priorand post installation, for which a comprehensive analysis of the vibration transfer paths is essential. Such ananalysis is presented in this paper for an operational MRI scanner. The vibration transfer paths are studiedboth analytically and experimentally. Based on the spectral analysis results, improvements in the existingvibration isolation mechanism are discussed.

    Measurements, Analysis Techniques and Experiments in Sound and Vibration: Applied to Operational MRI Scanners and in Remote Laboratories.2017Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    High quality noise and vibration measurements outside of a laboratory environment on real life structures and applications are not trivial. True boundary and operating conditions enforce unique challenges on the measurements. Measurements in hazardous situations such as high magnetic fields, and high temperature environments, etc., where ordinary measurement equipment and methods may not be employed, require further precautions. Post measurements objectives such as analysis, design and strategic decisions, e.g., control, rely heavily on the quality and integrity of the measurements (data).

    The quality of the experimental data is highly correlated with the on-field expertise. Practical or hands-on experience with measurements can be imparted to prospective students, researchers and technicians in the form of laboratory experiments involving real equipment and practical applications. However, achieving expertise in the field of sound and vibration measurements in general and their active control in particular is a time consuming and expensive process. Consequently most institutions can only afford a single setup, resulting in the compromise of the quality of expertise.

    In this thesis, the challenges in the field of sound and vibration measurements in high magnetic field are addressed. The analysis and measurement of vibration transferred from an operational magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner to adjacent floors is taken as an example. Improvised experimental measurement methods and custom-made frequency analysis techniques are proposed in order to address the challenges and study the vibration transfer. The methods may be extended to other operational industrial machinery and hazardous environments. To encourage and develop expertise in the field of acoustic/vibration measurements and active noise control on practical test beds, remotely controlled laboratory setups are introduced. The developed laboratory setup, which is accessed and controlled via the Internet, is the first of its kind in the active noise control and acoustic measurements area. The laboratory setup can be shared and utilized 24/7 globally, thus reducing the associated costs and eliminating time restrictions.

    Performing active noise control and acoustic experiments using real test setup via the Internet2016In: Proceedings of 2016 13th International Conference on Remote Engineering and Virtual Instrumentation, REV 2016, IEEE Press, 2016, p. 375-376Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In In this demo session, it will be shown how to perform Active Noise Control (ANC) and various important Acoustic experiments remotely on the remotely controlled ANC laboratory developed by Blekinge Institute of Technology, Sweden. An important consideration in ANC is the active control’s performance dependence on the spatial position of the reference and error sensors, etc. This will be highlighted particularly. This feature is recently implemented using stepper motors which can be controlled via the Internet. It will be demonstrated how to write and upload active noise control algorithms e.g. Filtered-X Least Mean Square (FXLMS) to a digital signal processors (DSP) board. For the acoustic experiments various interesting acoustic properties such as waveforms, speed of sound, mode shapes and sound pressure spectra may be measured. A short guide about the measurements and PowerPoint presentation will be provided during the demo to facilitate for the users. The Lab setup and the equipment will be shown to the user using Skype and a web camera.

    MRI SCANNER VIBRATION PATH ANALYSIS2013In: Machinery Noise and Vibration, 2013, article id 725Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanner is one of the most important tools in clinical diagnostics. MRI scanners are associated by strong vibration which results in unpleasant and disturbing acoustic noise. The primary source of this vibration is the Lorentz force produced by fast switching of the currents inside the gradient coils of MRI scanners under a strong static magnetic field. During an MR-imaging scan the switching is controlled in order to spatially code the hydrogen nuclei that will generate the signal, which is reconstructed into anatomical images. Faster switching of the currents allows for shorter scan times and/or higher image resolutions. Consequently, the clinical quality has motivated the drive for shorter switching time and higher currents. This development, however, has also caused an undesired increase of MRI vibrations. The overall vibration phenomenon of an installed fully functional MRI scanner system becomes unique because of the installed location and ambiance. This vibration can potentially degrade the image quality and hence the diagnosis. Apart from the vibration produced, the associated annoying acoustic noise may not only affect the patients under examination and the clinical staff, but may also be transmitted to other parts of the building and causing discomfort for the personnel working there. In order to devise an effective isolation plan or improve an existing one both for vibration and acoustic noise it is important to study the noise and vibration transfer paths. This paper concerns an investigation of vibration transfer paths for vibration excited by an installed functional MRI scanner at a medical facility. The vibration transfer paths have been investigated experimentally. The obtained results are presented and discussed.

    Performance evaluation of control algorithms implemented on a remotely controlled active noise control laboratory2013In: Active Noise and Vibration Control in Practical System Implementations, 2013, article id 731Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The remotely controlled laboratory setup for Active Noise Control (ANC) developed by Blekin-ge Institute of Technology, Sweden provides an efficient learning platform for the students to implement and learn ANC algorithms with real world physical system, hardware and signals. The initial laboratory prototype based on a Digital Signal Processor (DSP) TMS320C6713 from Texas Instruments (TI) was successfully tested with Filtered-x Least Mean Square (F-XLMS) algorithm applied to control noise in a ventilation duct. The resources of the DSP platform used in the remote laboratory setup enable testing and investigating substantially more challenging and computationally demanding algorithms. In this paper, we expand the horizon of the laboratory setup by testing more advanced and complicated single channel feed forward ANC algorithms. Filtered-x versions of algorithms such as the normalized least mean square (N-LMS), leaky least mean square (L-LMS), Filtered-U recursive least mean square (FURLMS) and recursive least square (RLS) algorithm etc. have been implemented utilizing the remote web based client provided in the remote laboratory. A comprehensive performance comparison of the aforementioned algorithms for the remote laboratory setup is presented to demonstrate the viability of the remote laboratory.

    Remotely Controlled Active Noise Control Laboratories2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Remotely controlled laboratories in educational institutions are gaining popularity at an exponential rate due to the multidimensional benefits they provide. The Virtual Instrument Systems in Reality (VISIR) project by Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH) Sweden has successfully implemented remotely controlled laboratories, with remotely controlled real instruments and experimental setups. Currently these laboratories provide students the opportunity to conduct experiments in the field of electronics, antenna theory and mechanical vibration measurements. In this paper a prototype system of a remotely controlled laboratory for active noise control (ANC) is introduced. The proposed lab will focus on addressing the problem of a ventilation duct noise. The laboratory is informative and to a great extent introduces a student to the general steps in ANC when it is suggested as a plausible solution for a noise problem. The student can perform an investigation concerning feasibility of active control, design, configuration and implementation of an active control system. The laboratory is based on a modern and relevant DSP platform with the corresponding software development environment controlled remotely. In addition, it may be utilized remotely both for lab assignments in acoustics courses and digital signal processing courses.

    CHALLENGES IN FULFILLING THE INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES OF REMOTE LABORATORIES: A CASE STUDY OF ACTIVE NOISE CONTROL AND ACOUSTIC REMOTE LABORATORY.2015In: PROCEEDINGS OF THE 22ND INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS ON SOUND AND VIBRATION: MAJOR CHALLENGES IN ACOUSTICS, NOISE AND VIBRATION RESEARCH, 2015 / [ed] Crocker, MJ Pawelczyk, M Pedrielli, F Carletti, E Luzzi, S, INT INST ACOUSTICS & VIBRATION , 2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The learning outcomes or educational objectives (goals) of a remote controlled laboratory via the Internet is the subject of discussion in this paper. The developers of remote laboratories are often self motivated individuals or academic groups, who only focus on development, accessibility and usability of their laboratories. The key question i.e. the intended learning outcomes or educational goals of a remotely controlled laboratory are frequently ignored or simply not given enough priority to be considered. This may lead to under utilization or complete failure of a particular remote laboratory. In this paper the challenges in formulating and achieving the educational objectives of a remotely controlled active noise control and acoustics laboratory are discussed.

    Enhancement of remotely controlled laboratory for Active Noise Control and acoustic experiments2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The latest important developments in the remotely controlled Active Noise Control (ANC) and Acoustics laboratory at Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH), Sweden, are introduced. The remotely controlled laboratory is based on the Virtual Instruments Systems in Reality (VISIR) concept, and concerns multi-channel measurement and control of the sound field in a heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) duct. Originally the ventilation duct was equipped with a fixed number of microphones at fixed spatial locations in the duct. A microphone positioning system has been designed and implemented. It enables control of the spatial positions of a number of microphones inside the HVAC duct using a suitable web interface for controlling stepper motors via a National Instruments (NI) PXI system. With the new developments, the spatial number of selectable positions for the microphones have been extended substantially. The new microphone positioning control system is presented and to enhance the user interaction with the laboratory equipment, an audio and visual system is also proposed.

    Development and Implementation of an Ad-vanced Remotely Controlled Vibration Laboratory2014In: proceedings of REV 2014 International Conference on Remote Engineering and Virtual Instrumentation, IEEE Computer Society, 2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Currently an advanced remotely controlled vibration laboratory is developed and implemented at Blekinge Institute of Technology, Karlskrona, Sweden. The new developments in the laboratory setup will provide users to carry out vibration measurements on a cantilever beam system with remotely adjustable dynamic properties and to estimate dynamic characteristics of it. The dynamic properties of the cantilever beam are remotely modified by attaching structural parts such as a block of mass, a spring mass system and a non-linear spring. In the development of this remote-lab, a number of different approaches were adopted for the production of well-defined experiments. Also, the new prototype laboratory is designed based on finite elements modeling (FEM) and LABVIEW. The test object, attachment mechanism for sub structures, relevant experiments, and proper interface for managing the lab via Internet and many other things have been considered.
