Annotation The sections of study course Research, Diagnostics and Monitoring of Machinery, offer the knowledge of the machine checks, controls, principles and necessity of these tests. The course includes additional chapters on the new directions of technical monitoring of machines, and the key areas of planned preventive maintenance and management of them. The course is intended for acquiring classical machine and dynamic node test methods, experimental design. The course includes practical work on machine geometric errors and dynamic evaluation, pressure, temperature, geometry, flow, velocity, acceleration and torque measurement, instrumentation, data processing and analysis, fault detection algorithm principles..
Goals and objectives
