In today's global competitive marketplace, there is intense pressure for manufacturing industries to continuously reduce and eliminate costly, unscheduled downtime and unexpected breakdowns. With the advent of Internet and tether-free technologies, companies necessitate dramatic changes in transforming traditional ''fail and fix (FAF)'' maintenance(More)
Bearing failure is one of the foremost causes of breakdowns in rotating machinery and such failure can be catastrophic, resulting in costly downtime. One of the key issues in bearing prognostics is to detect the defect at its incipient stage and alert the operator before it develops into a catastrophic failure. Signal de-noising and extraction of the weak(More)

De-noising and extraction of the weak signature are crucial to fault prognostics in which case features are often very weak and masked by noise. The wavelet transform has been widely used in signal de-noising due to its extraordinary time-frequency representation capability. In this paper, the performance of wavelet decomposition-based de-noising and(More)

* Aircraft engine bearing prognosis not only requires early detection of a bearing defect, but also the ability to predict bearing health conditions for all operational scenarios. This paper summarizes a physics-based remaining useful life (RUL) prediction method developed in the DARPA Engine System Prognosis (ESP) program. This investigation focuses on a(More)
The project integrates work in natural language processing, machine learning, and the semantic web, bringing together these diverse disciplines in a novel way to address a real problem. The objective is to extract and categorize machine components and subsystems and their associated failures using a novel approach that combines text analysis, unsupervised(More)
The need for sustainable development has been widely recognized and sustainable development has become a hot topic of various disciplines even though the role of ergonomics in it is seldom reported or considered. This study conducts a systematic survey of research publications in the fields of ergonomics and sustainable development over the past two decades(More)
The design, synthesis and biological evaluation of the cationic lipid gene delivery vectors based on cholesterol and natural amino acids lysine or histidine are described. Cationic liposomes composed of the newly synthesized cationic lipids 1a or 1b and neutral lipid DOPE (1,2-dioleoyl-L-α-glycero-3-phosphatidyl-ethanolamine) exhibited good transfection(More)
