An Experimental Rig for Damage Detection of Rolling Bearings
This paper describes the design of a rig devoted to testing rolling bearings. In order to control the signal-to-noise ratio of the measures, a potentially very silent test rig has been designed and assembled, with the possibility of simply changing the bearing under investigation as well as its load level and rotating speed. Acceleration data have then been examined by means of envelope, wavelet transform and cyclostationarity analyses, showing that the testing machine fulfils its task.
