This Proceedings contains the papers presented at the 14th International Conference on Condition Monitoring and Diagnostic Engineering Management (COMADEM 2001), held in Manchester, UK, on 4-6 September 2001. COMADEM 2001 builds on the excellent reputation of previous conferences in this series, and is essential for anyone working in the field of condition monitoring and maintenance management.

The scope of the conference is truly interdisciplinary. The Proceedings contains papers from six continents, written by experts in industry and academia the world over, bringing together the latest thoughts on topics including:

Condition-based maintenance
Reliability centred maintenance
Asset management
Industrial case studies
Fault detection and diagnosis
Non-destructive evaluation
Integrated diagnostics
Oil and debris analysis
Thermal techniques
Risk assessment
Structural health monitoring
Sensor technology
Advanced signal processing
Neural networks
Multivariate statistics
Data compression and fusion

This Proceedings also contains a wealth of industrial case studies, and the latest developments in education, training and certification.
