Special Session: Sparse Representation and Deep Learning for Mechanical Fault Diagnosis

Fault detection and diagnosis is an important strategy to detect and recognize the underlying failures for the operational safety of mechanical systems. In recent years, sparse representation is a popular model-driven tool to detect fault features and deep learning is a typical data-driven strategy to recognize fault category. Many novel diagnosis strategies combined sparse representation and deep learning are developed and achieved satisfying accuracy and interpretability. This invited session aims to report recent research works about the intersection points in the combination strategy for mechanical fault diagnosis with theoretical framework or industrial applications. Interesting topics for this special session include but are not limited to:

Sparse representation based diagnostic methods
Sparse index design for health monitoring and prognosis
Impulsive blind deconvolution
Cyclostationarity analysis
Physics-Informed Neural Networks for fault detection
Signal processing method driven machine learning
Plug-and-Play fault feature detection methods
Optimization inspired deep diagnostic methods
Intelligent health monitoring for shaft/bearing/gear
Aero-engine fault diagnosis
Underwater machinery fault detection
