Open Access research that is helping to improve educational outcomes for children

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Education, including those researching educational and social practices in curricular subjects. Research in this area seeks to understand the complex influences that increase curricula capacity and engagement by studying how curriculum practices relate to cultural, intellectual and social practices in and out of schools and nurseries.

Research at the School of Education also spans a number of other areas, including inclusive pedagogy, philosophy of education, health and wellbeing within health-related aspects of education (e.g. physical education and sport pedagogy, autism and technology, counselling education, and pedagogies for mental and emotional health), languages education, and other areas.

Abstract

This paper aims to present an integrated methodology for the monitoring of marine machinery using vibration data. Monitoring of machinery is a crucial aspect of maintenance optimisation that is required for the vessel operation to remain sustainable and profitable. The proposed methodology will train models using pre-classified (healthy/faulty) data and then classify new data points using the models developed. For this, vibration points are first acquired, appropriately processed and stored in a database. Specific features are then extracted from the data and stored. These data are then used to train supervised models pertinent to specific machinery components. Finally, new data are compared against the models developed in order to evaluate their condition. The above will provide a flexible but robust framework for the early detection of emerging machinery faults. This will lead to minimisation of ship downtime and increase of the ship’s operability and income through operational enhancement.
