AN EXPERIMENTAL PROCEDURE TO DETERMINE THE EFFECTS OF WEAR AND DETERIORATION ON ENGINE VIBRATION SIGNATURE
This paper describes an experimental procedure to determine the effects of wear and deterioration on the vibration signature of a reciprocating engine. Power spectral density analysis is the evaluation technique proposed. The experiment is designed to show that by closely following changes in the power spectral density plots, the engines internal condition can be determined. The report describes the results of initial experimentation and provides detailed procedures for continuance of the project.
