Thesis title: Online condition based maintenance of industrial gearboxes using advanced mobile, Web/Internet and sensory technologies

Wenjie's main areas of interest are:

  • gear meshing theory of involute cylindrical worm matting with helical gear
  • finite element analysis of gear strength, 3D virtual simulation of gear design and assembly, loaded tooth contact analysis
  • gear design optimisation
  • artificial intelligence including genetic algorithms and artificial neural networks
  • condition monitoring of gearboxes.

His current project is on the online condition based maintenance of industrial gearboxes using advanced mobile, web/internet and sensory technologies.
