Complex rotating machinery is an integral part of operations across multiple industries including healthcare, medical device, robotics, and traditional manufacturing. Turbomachinery, generators, engines, pumps, servo actuators, and electrical motors all depend on intricate inner mechanisms. Rotating machinery, such as turbomachinery, generators, motors, centrifuges, aircraft engines, pumps and fans, fail often because of bearing defects.  Engines, […]

Fault detection and diagnosis is essential across diverse industries.  They increase safety and reduce costs, replacing current scheduled-based maintenance strategies which cost billions yearly. Dr. Nataraj’s fault detection system invention provides a software-based method for diagnosing the nature and magnitude of faults within dynamic mechanical and electrical systems. The software uses measured data from already […]

Villanova University scientist, Qianhong Wu has developed a novel method to assess the results of a BAFMD test, including a system and device that evaluate the output and results of an FMD process. It produces a diagnostic tool that overcomes the previous issues of interpreting an FMD test. There is significant potential for the tool […]

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune disease that occurs when the body’s immune system attacks joints, creating debilitating inflammation and pain. Left unchecked this inflammatory condition can permanently damage joint structures, and in some cases, damage the cardiovascular and respiratory systems.
