Guided Ultrasonics Ltd.(GUL) and Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) are currently engaged in research collaboration for structural health monitoring of pipelines using guided waves. This research work will explore novel methods of guided wave monitoring past complex pipe features. This would lead to a more cost effective method of pipeline structural health monitoring for the oil, gas and chemical sectors.

UTM's Professor Salman Leong and Dr Lim Meng Hee are key members of the Institute of Noise and Vibration, which is a UTM centre of excellence since 1992; recognised as a key referral centre by the industry and government agencies. They visited GUL this week to sign a collaboration agreement between UTM and GUL.

GUL currently has ten researchers working on the development of cutting-edge technologies, and is seeking to collaborate with research institutes around the world to conduct experiments and produce high-impact publications.
