Using fuzzy c-means and fuzzy integrals for machinery fault diagnosis

Liu, Xiaofeng, Ma, Lin, Zhang, Sheng, & Mathew, Joseph (2005) Using fuzzy c-means and fuzzy integrals for machinery fault diagnosis. In International Conference on Condition Monitoring, 18-21 July 2005, Cambridge, England.


This research applied fuzzy c-means and fuzzy integral theories to a proposed novel two-step machinery fault diagnosis model. Distributed multiple fuzzy c-means classifiers were used to produce an initial diagnosis result by considering different features. Fuzzy measure and fuzzy integral data fusion theory was then applied to combine the initial diagnosis results into a consensus final decision. Vibration signals from rolling element bearings were used to validate the method. Results showed that the proposed approach using fuzzy c-means and fuzzy integral techniques improved the diagnosis accuracy and reduced the computation load.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
