Electrical resistance tomography (ERT) has great potential to be used for multi-phase flow monitoring. The Image reconstruction in ERT is computationally costly, so the online monitoring is a difficult task. The linear reconstruction methods are currently used as fast methods. The image reconstruction is a nonlinear inverse problem and the linear methods are not sufficient in many cases. The application of a recently proposed non-iterative inversion method for two-phase materials in has been studied. The method works based on Monotonicity property of the resistance matrix in ERT and it requires modest computational cost. In this paper we explain the application of this inversion method. We demonstrate the capabilities and drawbacks of the method by using 2D test examples. A major contribution of this paper is to optimize the software program for the inversion (by doing most of the computations offline), so it can be used for online application.
