SRP-Onderzoekszwaartepunt: Enhanced Modelling and Monitoring Strategies for Key Technologies

Project Details


It is our strategic ambition to strengthen our scientific position and to evolve in this manner towards a well-structured international top-level group within the field of data driven Modelling and Monitoring Strategies for key technologies. Wind energy, Industry 4.0 and Additive Manufacturing are such key technologies and are research priorities within Flanders and Europe. • For many large structures and industrial machinery, and for Wind Turbines in particular, structural health monitoring (SHM) and condition monitoring (CM) are a valuable tool for improved operations and maintenance (O&M) and end-of-life decisions (RUL/CLT). • The ongoing shift in business model in the manufacturing industry (Industry 4) from selling a product (e.g., a compressor) to delivering a “guaranteed” service (e.g., pressurized air) needs smart monitoring strategies to survey the condition of the products. • Monitoring strategies will be of paramount importance to fully exploit the potential of Additive Manufacturing. This is surely true for safety critical applications (e.g., aeronautics). To solve these challenges innovative modelling and monitoring solutions will be required. A key factor for the development towards an interconnected world of reliable and safe systems is enabling the capturing of high-quality data and combine it with advanced data processing and modelling tools, to detect novelties in an object's usage, damage status or behaviour.
