Smart operational load monitoring using decision trees and artificial neural networks: A comparative study

pages 269 - 272, full text

Operational Load Monitoring is an industrial process that allows to predict the remaining in-service life of a mechanical structure under variable loads. Data from sensors embedded or mounted on the structure is acquired and allows to estimate the number and amplitude of load cycles that the structure has withstood so far in its working environment. This process is especially important in the aerospace industry where mechanical structures of an aircraft are monitored in order to maximize their operating lifetime. Smart Operational Load Monitoring means implementation of artificial intelligence techniques to the process in order to make predictions based on measurements from reduced number of sensors. In this paper a composite lightweight structure of typical geometry used in aircraft structures is taken as an example for Smart Operational Load Monitoring. The predictions are made from measurements from six strain gauges mounted to the structure, using carefully prepared artificial intelligence-based models. Efficiency of the models is compared, in terms of their prediction accuracies and computational complexities.
