Shoda Memorial Lecture - Kelvin’s apostles in the 21st century: Seeing the invisible

16th November 2021 6:30 pm

Speaking in 1883 about understanding scientific phenomena, Lord Kelvin advocated experimental measurement as the fundamental basis for progress. The challenges that our society faces in the 21st century require us to “see inside” complex engineering machinery. Inspired by the success of medical imaging methods such as X-Ray CT and MRI scanning, scientists and engineers worldwide are now developing tomographic methods to penetrate critical processes inside a huge variety of equipment, ranging from chemical production plant to aero gas turbine engines. From their different perspectives, both Lord Kelvin and Taizo Shoda would be proud of this quest.
