On Dec 10, 2020, Dr. Mohammad Pourgol-Mohammad presented:
Prognostics and Health Management; Fundamentals, Elements, RUL Determination Techniques
The core of U.S. economy, security and quality of life depends on complex engineering systems that range from power plants, energy systems, and pipelines to aircraft, defense, and transportation systems. These complex engineering systems consistent of interconnected and diverse hardware, software, and human elements in dynamic conditions, physical processes, and
environments. Over the past decades, significant advances in sensing and computing have led to an explosion of new data and PHM algorithms designed to monitor component reliability. This webinar will discuss the advancements of PHM techniques and the simulation tools available to estimate the fatigue, corrosion, wear and creep life (RUL) of structures. Several Case studies will be presented.
