In today's competitive climate the economies of production have become a critical factor for all manufacturing companies. For this reason, achieving cost-effective plant maintenance is highly important. In this context monitoring plays a vital role.
The purpose of this book is to inform readers about techniques currently available in the field of condition monitoring, and the methodology used in their application. With contributions from experts throughout the world, theHandbook of Condition Monitoringaddresses the four major technique areas in condition monitoring in addition to the latest developments in condition monitoring research.
Significantly, theHandbook of Condition Monitoringincludes the following features:
  • comprehensive coverage of the full range of techniques and methodologies
  • accepted knowledge and new developments
  • both technical and managerial content.

This is the essential reference book for maintenance technicians, engineers, managers and researchers as well as graduate students involved in manufacturing and mechanical engineering, and condition monitoring.
