Condition Monitoring

What is condition monitoring?

As devices become more and more complex with the years, the need for knowledge of their behaviour become more demanding, as well as the need for accurate data. Predicting the life of a structure today combines the understanding of physics, the detection of physical variables, and the processing of data with computerized algorithms to be able to detect miss function or possible failure. These three concepts form the basis of any condition monitoring system.

By monitoring a parameter of condition (vibration, temperature, strain etc.) information is extracted to identify significant change in the behaviour of the structure which is indicative of a developing fault. Therefore, condition monitoring is a major part of predictive maintenance.

By using this type of monitoring, actions can be taken to prevent substantial damages, or allow maintenance to be scheduled when necessary. The major benefit of condition monitoring is the fact that conditions that would normally shorten the lifespan of a structure can be addressed before they develop in significant failure. Condition monitoring also identifies the type of fault, and the instant when a defect appears in a particular component. This data will provide enough information to improve future designs.
