The course deals with condition monitoring of dynamic machinery and static mechanical equipment by the use of advanced sensors and analysis tools. Furthermore, condition monitoring is discussed as a part of a predictive maintenance strategy (condition based maintenance). The focus is especially directed towards the petroleum industry, but can be generalized towards land based industry.

Learning outcome

The course shall give the student a basic understanding of predictive maintenance management and the basic principles and methods used in condition monitoring of rotating machinery, piping, pressure vessels and load bearing structures.


Condition monitoring as a part of the maintenance strategy, principles of condition monitoring, establishing a predictive maintenance program. Introduction to monitoring methods using vibration, ultrasonic, thermodynamics, lubrication oil analysis techniques and non-destructive testing (NDT) methods such as penetrant, flux leakage, eddy current, radiography.
