Condition based maintainance for rotating machinery
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis report presents the results of a design and mathematical calculation of a mechanical test facility using SolidWorks simulation program to fine the FEM analysis of the transducer (part of the measurement device). A simplified shaft’s dynamic model was investigated using SimulationX program. The purpose of this, is to develop the knowledge about the rotating shaft and the reaction forces at the boundary condition. In this thesis, the CBM strategy is based on the model free technique and a continuous monitoring of the component(s) during the operation time. An automatic Switch Off program has been designed in LabView to prevent further damaging of the test facility. Functionalities from three different directions of measurement equipment (strain gages); X, Y and Z, have been considered to create a CBM strategy for the test-bearing effective lifetime by measuring the equivalent load. According to the work load and the time limitation, the building and testing of the test-rig have been dropped out of the thesis. This is in the concern of the supervisors. However, later in this report one will see the necessary details as concerning the building of test facility.
