9780121272555: Mechanical Signature Analysis: Theory and Applications

Signature analysis deals with the extraction of information from measured signal patterns, and this book describes those of its aspects which are relevant within the field of Mechanical Engineering. Powerful instrumentation systems, incorporating, sophisticated analysing, processing techniques, are now available to the practitioner, but basic understanding and the capability to choose and evaluate these techniques often suffer because of the misleading ease of applying these. This is the raison d'etre of this book: it attempts to provide the firm background necessary to the design, use and evaluation of tasks involving signature analysis. We have tried to reach this objective by a text combining the theoretical aspects and applications, both presented at compatible levels.

Advances in instrument technology have brought the techniques of signature analysis to the realm of a large audience of mechanical engineers. This book describes the theoretical background and practical applications of signature analysis in this field, including:**parametric and non-parametric methods of spectrum analysis**special techniques such as cepstral analysis and Hilbert transforms**vibration monitoring and signal generation models.
