Modelling wear degradation in cylinder liners

Simone Hermann, Fabrizio Ruggeri, Technische Universität Dortmund, Technische Universität Dortmund
We present and discuss a stochastic model describing the wear process of cylinder liners in a marine diesel engine. The model is based on a stochastic differential equation and Bayesian inference is illustrated. Corrosive action and measurement error, both quite negligible, are modeled with a Wiener process whereas a jump process is used to describe the contribution of soot particles to the wear process. The model can be used to forecast the wear process and, consequently, plan condition based
