Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Fault diagnostics and prognostics play significant roles in ensuring the safe operation of mechanical systems. With the development of condition-based maintenance and predictive maintenance, fault diagnostics and prognostics have attracted increasing amounts of attention in both academic research and industrial practice. With this Special Issue, we aim to summarize and publish the advanced technologies and methods in mechanical fault diagnostics and prognostics. This Special Issue aims to provide a platform for scholars to publish their new ideas and research works in this area.

Areas relevant to advanced technologies and methods in mechanical fault diagnostics and prognostics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Dynamic modeling of mechanical systems;
  • Degradation modeling of mechanical systems;
  • Advanced signal processing technologies;
  • Health indicator construction from multi-sensor signals;
  • Health condition monitoring of mechanical systems;
  • Big-data-driven intelligent fault diagnostics;
  • Data-model-fusion fault diagnostics and prognostics;
  • Remaining useful life prediction of mechanical systems.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 System Innovation 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 1400 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.
