Predictive Weld Distortion in Thick Navy Structures

Project Participants: Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding-Newport News Project Start: November 2004 SShipbuilders often use heat addition (flame straightening) to remove the distortion caused by welding. This labor and time intensive method affects product cost and schedule and is a complicated trial-and-error solution method. Experience can reduce the number of iterations to the solution, but the number […]

Wireless Automated Diagnostic/Prognostics

Project Participants: Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding-Newport News Project Start: July 2004 Automated Diagnostic and Prognostic (ADP) systems can be used as a means both to reduce Preventive Maintenance and to predict when Corrective Maintenance on plant equipment will be required. This involves robust current condition diagnostics and future condition prognostics capabilities. These capabilities are rapidly emerging […]
