This book provides readers with a timely snapshot of the potential offered by and challenges posed by signal processing methods
in the field of machine diagnostics and condition monitoring. It gathers contributions to the first Workshop on Signal Processing
Applied to Rotating Machinery Diagnostics, held in Setif, Algeria, on April 9-10, 2017, and organized by the Applied Precision
Mechanics Laboratory (LMPA) at the Institute of Precision Mechanics, University of Setif, Algeria and the Laboratory of Mechanics,
Modeling and Manufacturing (LA2MP) at the National School of Engineers of Sfax. The respective chapters highlight research
conducted by the two laboratories on the following main topics: noise and vibration in machines; condition monitoring in non-stationary
operations; vibro-acoustic diagnosis of machinery; signal processing and pattern recognition methods; monitoring and diagnostic
systems; and dynamic modeling and fault detection.
