As we all know, it is difficult to extract weak feature for early wear of connecting rod bearings under transient conditions. In order to solve the problem, a method of extracting wear features for connecting rod bearings based on variational modal decomposition (VMD) adaptive noise reduction and computational order tracking (COT) was proposed. Firstly, the vibration signals of internal combustion engine block under transient operating conditions were collected, and the signals were reordered

Next, the VMD was used to decompose the angular domain signal into multiple modal components, and the autocorrelation function (ACF) was used to denoise the modal components adaptively. Finally, the signal was reconstructed to conduct COT analysis, and the wear features of connecting rod bearing were extracted by average COT spectrum. The simulation analysis and the simulation experiment of the connecting rod bearing fault show that the proposed method is effective, and the weak features for early wear of connecting rod bearing of internal combustion engine are extracted.
