The First Business Breakfast is now over!

On Thursday, December 15, the First Business Breakfast with EIT Raw Materials was held under the key topic “Together we are shaping the mining and processing of the future for Europe’s raw material supply security!”.

The event was hosted in Building H-14 of the Wrocław University of Science and Technology. Magdalena Worsa-Kozak, EIT Raw Materials coordinator at PWr, opened the meeting by briefly introducing the organizers and the goal.

DMC team-members on the first “International Workshop on MOdelling and Simulation of COmplex Systems for Sustainable Energy Efficiency”

Dr. Pavlo Krot and Dr. Jacek Wodecki presented their research achievements at the MOSCOSSE’2021 workshop organized by The Laboratory of Mechanics, Modelling and Production (LA2MP) from the University of Sfax, Tunisia, and the Department of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering, Centre of Asset Integrity Management (C-AIM) from University of Pretoria, South Africa.

It was a pleasure to see our colleagues presenting case studies and findings in such fields of complex systems studies related to three of our projects (MaMMa, OPMO, and SafeMe4Mine) as:

  • On-line dynamical analysis of the driveline regimes to be used as a part of mill control or a separate monitoring system,
  • developing remedies against torsional vibrations and cobbles in high-speed wire rod rolling mills based on dynamical models to improve product geometry and equipment durability,
  • Separation of fault-related impulsive components from vibration signal.

We have all broadened our horizons and learned some new valuable things thanks to the exchange of knowledge with a very interdisciplinary and skilled group of workshop participants. Thank you!

DMC is on a roll!

We are exceedingly happy to announce that the Digital Mining Center team has published a record number of journal articles at the end of this year. In the last two months of 2020, as many as 11 new papers appeared. The studies present the progress of the research conducted in the scope of all the four projects (MEITIM, AMICOS, OPMO, SafeMe4Mine) in which the team is currently involved and some more. We invite the reader to get acquainted with these works listed below:

Adach-Pawelus, Karolina; Gogolewska, Anna; Gorniak-Zimroz, Justyna; Herbert, Juan Herrera; Hidalgo, Arturo; Kielczawa, Barbara; Krupa-Kurzynowska, Joanna; Lampinen, Matti; Mamelkina, Maria A.; Paszkowska, Gabriela; Szyszka, Danuta; Tuunila, Ritva; Worsa-Kozak, Magdalena; Wozniak, Justyna

Towards Sustainable Mining in the Didactic Process—MEITIM Project as an Opportunity to Increase the Attractiveness of Mining Courses (A Case Study of Poland) Journal Article

In: Sustainability, vol. 12, no. 23, 2020.

Abstract | Links

This article depicts the initial assumptions of the international project Master in Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Technology Integration in Mining (MEITIM), co-financed by EIT Raw Materials, that aims to diagnose the current state of Polish higher education in the field of mining at, among others, the Wroclaw University of Science and Technology (WUST), concerning the experience of the Technical University of Madrid (UPM) and Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT). The MEITIM project allowed for identifying the directions of necessary changes in the didactic process so as to provide an indispensable set of skills and knowledge for a future mining graduate.

Zaproszenie na Dolnośląski Festiwal Nauki

Zespół Digital Mining Center Wydziału Geoinżynierii, Górnictwa i Geologii Politechniki Wrocławskiej w ramach Dolnośląskiego Festiwalu Nauki serdecznie zaprasza na warsztaty on-line na temat:

Górnictwo – maszyny i roboty – rzeczywistość i świat wirtualny.

Przygotujcie się na przygodę z cyfrowym górnictwem. Opowiemy o tym jak roboty i drony pomagają górnikom w pracy i jak pozwalają pracować bezpieczniej. Pokażemy prawdziwą kopalnię dzięki możliwościom technologii filmowania 360. Pokażemy testy nowoczesnych urządzeń na co dzień wspierających pracę pod ziemią. Opowiemy o ciekawych międzynarodowych projektach, współfinansowanych przez EIT KIC Raw Materials, które realizuje DMC.

Warsztaty są otwarte dla wszystkich chętnych uczestników bez limitu miejsc i bez wcześniejszych zapisów.

Odbędą się on-line na platformie ZOOM w 3 terminach do wyboru:

• 21. września 2020r. o godz. 10.00 – 11.00

• 22. września 2020r. o godz. 10.00 – 11.00

• 23. września 2020r. o godz. 10.00 – 11.00

Two new articles published in MSSP

We are happy to announce that members of DMC recently published two articles in Mechanical Systems and Signal Processing journal. Both of them present newly developed vibration signal processing techniques mainly aimed for machine diagnostics purposes (see references below). The work presented in those papers has been funded by MAMMA and OPMO projects. Full citations can be found on the research page.
