Abstract
FAILURE OF AIR CLEANER SYSTEMS IS A MAJOR CAUSE OF ENGINE FAILURE. A NEED EXISTS FOR A DETECTOR TO INDICATE WHEN PARTICLES ARE ENTERING THE ENGINE. THE PROPOSED DETECTOR PROVIDES A LOW COST SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM. THE PROPOSED PROJECT WILL CONSIST OF: 1) DESIGNING AND FABRICATING THE DETECTOR; 2) DEVELOPING AND FABRICATING THE SIGNAL PROCESSING ELECTRONICS; AND 3) EVALUATING THE DETECTOR. THE PROPOSED DESIGN WILL PROVIDE A SIMPLE WARNING TO THE OPERATOR, AND CAN ALSO SUPPLY MORE SOPHISTICATED DATA FOR PROGNOSTIC APPLICATIONS. THE PROPOSED PROJECT WILL PROVE THE FEASIBILITY OF THE DESIGN AND RESULT IN THE DELIVERY OF PROTOTYPE HARDWARE.
