Paper Abstract

The study evaluated damage detection of a tapered roller bearing using a non-contact photogrametric approach. Customized round tape was pasted on the bearing housing and GOM Pontos was used to measure the radial accelerations from the bearing housing. The data obtained from the the photogrammetric techniques was processed to detect damage of the bearing using statistical tools such as RMS, kurtosis. It was established that the phogrammetric approach detects bearing damage excellently.
