Covering all aspects of condition monitoring from an introductory level, this new title provides a general introduction to CM and diagnostic technologies, containing eleven chapters on the following topics: implementing condition-based maintenance; vibration analysis; oil analysis; wear debris analysis; acoustic emission; thermal imaging; ultrasound condition monitoring; motor current signature analysis / electrical condition monitoring; optical condition monitoring and laser shearography; prognostics and root cause failure analysis; ISO standards.

The opening chapter covers the challenges involved in setting up a CM programme and this is followed by several chapters that provide an introduction to the most widely used CM techniques and diagnostic technologies. A further chapter introduces the wide range of international CM standards and, although the book is essentially an introductory text, an additional chapter is included on the important topic of prognostics. The individual chapters are written by experts who are well-known in their particular fields of expertise. The book will provide a useful introduction to the subject for both undergraduate and postgraduate engineering students, researchers, academics, condition monitoring practitioners and management.
