—Prognostics and Health Management aims at estimating the remaining useful life of a system (RU L), i.e. the remaining time before a failure occurs. It benefits thereby from an increasing interest: prognostic estimates (and related decision-making processes) enable increasing availability and safety of industrial equipment while reducing costs. However,(More)
—Estimating remaining useful life (RUL) of critical machinery is a challenging task. It is achieved through essential steps of data acquisition, data pre-processing and prognostics modeling. To estimate RUL of a degrading machinery, prognostics modeling phase requires precise knowledge about failure threshold (FT) (or failure definition). Practically,(More)
The health assessment of composite structures from acoustic emission data is generally tackled by the use of clustering techniques. In this paper, the K-means clustering and the newly proposed Partially-Hidden Markov Model (PHMM) are exploited to analyse the data collected during mechanical tests on composite structures. The health assessment considered in(More)
Prognostic is recognized as a key feature as the estimation of the remaining useful life of an equipment allows avoiding inopportune maintenance spending. However, it can be difficult to implement an efficient prognostic tool since the lack of knowledge on the behavior of an equipment can impede the development of classical dependability analysis. In this(More)
