On Approaches of Assessment of Tribo Data from Medium Lorry Truck

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 210)


The paper deals with application of selected analytical methods in order to analyse field data from heavy off-road military vehicles. The information from the engine oil are interpreted in form of polluting particles like particles from wear process (e.g. Fe, Pb, Cu, etc.) and particles from oil deterioration itself (like Mn, Si, Zn, etc.). These particles can give us information both about system state and about oil state. We have reasonable set of oil data from field operation available. Based on the data we assume being able to determine the system condition and propose some changes (e.g. in residual operation life, in maintenance modifications in the intervals, in mission planning, etc.). Selected methods like regression analysis and fuzzy inference system are used for the data assessment.
