Software for Multi-Site Damage Visualization




Multi-site damage, Multi-class diagnostic system, Simulation, Processing


Background. In our time, the improvement of diagnostic systems is mainly focused on increasing the accuracy of primary transducers. Standard methods of displaying diagnostic information do not always allow us to uniquely assess the technical state of objects. The implementation of new ways of measurements visualizing using the latest information and computer technologies, for example, simulation and motion capture systems, is a promising direction for the development of tools for monitoring and diagnostic of technical state of engineering objects that are in difficult operating conditions.

Objective. The aim of the paper is substantiation and development of software for measurement data visualization for multi-class diagnostic system of technical condition of engineering objects.

Methods. Processing programming language is a new, yet powerful software development tool, including for next-generation diagnostic systems.

Results. The algorithm and the software for visualization of complex measurements of stresses and spatial position are developed. It provides the processing (transformation) of the recorded in the output file data for correct display on the simulation model of the tank, taking into account file data write characteristics, ADC parameters (bit rate, input range), the number of information sensors that affects the number of elements of a three-dimensional model for displaying data.

Conclusions. On the basis of the programming language Processing, which allows working with three-dimensional graphics, a program for displaying strain gauge measurements data, pre-recorded into a file, on a geometric model of an object is implemented, as well as displaying the current spatial position of the object by visualizing the measured angles of the slope of the structure relative to the vertical axis.
