Remaining useful life (RUL) prediction is a process using prediction methods to forecast the future performance of components or systems and obtain the time left before them loses its operation ability. Knowing the RUL of a system is essential for maintenance decision making and contingency mitigation. Its ultimate aim is to increase availability, reliability and safety; and reduce maintenance costs. Apart from maintenance, the estimation of RUL has also an important role in the management of product reuse and recycle which has strategic impacts on energy consumption, raw material use, pollution and landfill.
The student will be based at Through-life Engineering Services (TES) Centre at Cranfield. The TES Centre focuses on developing knowledge, technology and process demonstrators to provide the capability for the concept design of high value engineering systems based on design and manufacturing for through-life engineering services. The student will also work with the core industrial partners of TES Centre to develop a user case to apply this framework to industrial components in aerospace sector.
