MECH 458 DELETED - Machine Condition Monitoring and Fault Diagnostics F | 3.5

Lecture: 3
Lab: 0.17
Tutorial: 0.33
The primary objective of this course is to introduce students to the dynamic behaviour of rotating machinery (but other machinery classes will also be included) and to discuss appropriate fault and mechanical deterioration detection and diagnostic criteria and schemes for various applications. Emphasis will be placed on the application of vibration based methods of data acquisition and analysis techniques. There will be a laboratory component that will provide the students with demonstrations and the opportunity to collect and analyze vibration data from a set of mechanical fault simulators. Topics will include, but not be limited to; basic maintenance philosophies and strategies, vibration signal measurement and recording instrumentation, dynamic signal analysis and display, vibration level standards, rotating machinery balancing, shaft alignment, rolling element and journal bearing faults, gear wear detection and case studies. Correlation of infra-red thermography, oil analysis and other methods of fault detection and diagnostic techniques with vibration based methods will also be discussed. Deleted 2016-2017
