Gebraeel's Research to Prevent Failures in Airplanes
Nagi Gebraeel, assistant professor in the Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, was recently interviewed by Ivanhoe Broadcast News for Discoveries & Breakthroughs Inside Science to discuss the applications in aviation of his latest research.
Gebraeel has developed a system called adaptive prognostics for electronics and manufacturing components. The system uses internal sensors to measure use and wear in real-time, giving engineers another tool to prevent mechanical problems and part failures in airplanes.
"This system will not only say how long a given product or component is going to last; it will also give them economic insight as to when is the best economical time to replace that component," Dr. Gebraeel explained.
