Overview

The objective of this course is to present an analytical approach to fault diagnosis and failure prevention in a broad range of machinery used in the process, manufacturing and power generation industries. The key routes to predictive maintenance are demonstrated through both overview and study of examples in: Metallurgical failure analysis Vibration analysis A sequential approach to machinery troubleshooting and problem solving.
