Special Issue "Fault Detection and Diagnosis in Mechatronics Systems"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2018).
Interests: railway vehicles (design and simulation); wheel/rail contact; railway dynamics; vehicle monitoring and diagnostics; heavy vehicles; multibody codes; machine design; experimental mechanics
The mechatronic approach is, nowadays, applied to many industrial sectors, and allows the integration in multi-disciplinary, environment, different technologies with the purpose of enhancing the performance of a system. A mechatronic system typically includes sensors, data acquisition, actuators (that operate in synergy) driven by specific control algorithms to perform a desired function on a controlled device.
One of the most recent and promising application of mechatronics concerns its application to improve the safety of complex systems. With this aim, it can be applied to different sectors: Transportation systems, vehicles, wind turbines, industrial processes, manufacturing, food industry, automation, and many others.
This Special Issue aims to collect papers concerning recent advances and challenges in application of “Mechatronics on Fault Detection and Diagnosis”, articulated over a wide range of sectors.
Papers submitted to this Special Issue are expected to provide an original contribution, proposing new solutions, improvements to existing solutions, and new applications in emerging sectors. The paper can address the solution of specific problems in the sector of interest using algorithms, experimental tests, and numerical analysis.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
