Conditional maintenance using artificial neural network and vibration techniques to improve production cost-effectiveness
MetadataShow full item record
Currently, a number of researchers have been working to understand the health monitoring and damage detection problems. Structural health monitoring (SHM) and damage detection techniques are instrumental for the engineering community both for safety and cost effectiveness reasons. The project herein demonstrates that maintenance can be planned before a fault occurs, minimizing thus serious damages probability. A customized conditional maintenance design has been developed by means of SHM and damage techniques. Such a system provides fixed bands as well as trend graphics which estimate a possible fault alarm, emergency time and detection damage as well. The artificial neural network theory has been the tool used for its fast detecting and determining damages on an operating machine before critical conditions, which leads to an optimized maintenance and production management.
