SIMULATION AND ANALYSIS OF MACHINERY FAULT SIGNALS

Machinery condition monitoring, and in particular vibration monitoring, is being widely applied as an aid to predictive and preventive maintenance. For reliable use of such a system an improved understanding is required of the vibration signatures produced by machinery failure mechanisms and of methods for the interpretation of these signals. Many types of fault produce vibration signals which are impulsive in nature, and which may be buried in background noise. A method is described for simulating this type of signal and for modelling the various stages of incipient failure.
