ED - New technologies and commercial evolution
This project will develop the THOR Hammer device to allow the consistent and accurate measurement and assessment of wood pole asset condition.
- Convert the existing output from the instrument (reduction in residual diameter) to reduction of residual strength value (RSV, as documented in BS1990-1), by determining and agreeing method and assumptions.
- Utilise machine learning to automate the detailed waveform analysis and provide the required outputs at the time of test.
- Use real data and destructive examinations to prove the accuracy of the technology on pole types common to the GB electricity industry.
