Abstract

Computer-aided real-time status monitoring of production plants - concept and application L. Bukowski, G. Schone Institut fur Huttenmaschinen und Maschinelle Anlagentechnik, Technische Universitdt Clausthal, INTRODUCTION Technical facilities attain a certain initial condition after construction, installation, and approval. During operation of the plants, the individual components are subjected to various (mechanical, thermal, chemical, and electrochemical) loads, which affect the development of material fatigue as well as component wear. This results in alteration of the plant condition, and thus in the following phenomena, among others: impairment of product quality, adverse effects on personnel, and interruption of production. Since production plants usually operate continuously, a conclusion on the instantaneous condition of the plant is feasible only indirectly by selection of appropriate parameters which des
