Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

In this paper, a novel method of diesel engine pattern recognition is introduced. Hilbert spectrum (HS) and information entropy are combined to form the Hilbert spectrum entropy (HSE) which is able to give an accurate entropy estimation for Hilbert spectrum. It is more convenient and visual to pattern recognition and fault diagnosis. Experimental data of piston and cylinder liner wear rates obtained from a production diesel engine is used to evaluate the newly developed method. A good conclusion has been reached. Hilbert spectrum entropy is a more advanced method, owing to its numerical outputs, for pattern recognition and fault diagnosis of diesel engines.
