TL;DR: A novel approach for automatic extraction of SSL and MS from a RCI 3D model or workpiece is presented and can interactively construct a parameterized RCI platform, which inputs and outputs the presented RCI parameters to existing CFD and CAM systems rapidly and effectively.
Abstract: Radial compressor impeller (RCI) manufacturing is moving toward to improve competitiveness through smart manufacturing. Although current CAD (computer-aided design) and CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) techniques provide multiple tools to construct and optimize complicated geometries of RCI, an adjustment of blade shape often leads to nonparametric geometric reconstruction. As the key geometric elements in RCI, set of streamlines (SSL) and meridional section (MS) play vital roles in modeling and aerodynamic optimization. This paper presents a novel approach for automatic extraction of SSL and MS from a RCI 3D model or workpiece. Furthermore, the presented method can interactively construct a parameterized RCI platform, which inputs and outputs the presented RCI parameters to existing CFD and CAM systems rapidly and effectively. An integrated acquisition is employed. The straight generatrix vectors (SGVs) are identified and their boundary points are defined. After the uniform partition of SGV segments, the sequent equant points along spanwise direction are packaged to fit SSL. To manipulate the smoothness and approximation, a double-fitting method is performed to generate SSL. A parameterized system for extracting SSL and modeling RCI is developed. The validities of the presented method in different systems are demonstrated. Furthermore, the presented method breaks conventional RCI development procedure and shortens RCI product cycles, which is desirable and significative for integrated RCI design and manufacturing.

TL;DR: In this paper, a survey comprehensively reviews over 300 manuscripts on AI-driven DT technologies of Industry 4.0 used over the past five years and summarizes their general developments and the current state of AI-integration in the fields of smart manufacturing and advanced robotics.
Abstract: Digital twin (DT) and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies have grown rapidly in recent years and are considered by both academia and industry to be key enablers for Industry 4.0. As a digital replica of a physical entity, the basis of DT is the infrastructure and data, the core is the algorithm and model, and the application is the software and service. The grounding of DT and AI in industrial sectors is even more dependent on the systematic and in-depth integration of domain-specific expertise. This survey comprehensively reviews over 300 manuscripts on AI-driven DT technologies of Industry 4.0 used over the past five years and summarizes their general developments and the current state of AI-integration in the fields of smart manufacturing and advanced robotics. These cover conventional sophisticated metal machining and industrial automation as well as emerging techniques, such as 3D printing and human–robot interaction/cooperation. Furthermore, advantages of AI-driven DTs in the context of sustainable development are elaborated. Practical challenges and development prospects of AI-driven DTs are discussed with a respective focus on different levels. A route for AI-integration in multiscale/fidelity DTs with multiscale/fidelity data sources in Industry 4.0 is outlined.

TL;DR: A technical system that embeds machine learning modules into digital twins and a combination of the digital twin in maintenance with machine learning in predictive maintenance of diesel locomotives is presented.
Abstract: The full life cycle management of complex equipment is considered fundamental to the intelligent transformation and upgrading of the modern manufacturing industry. Digital twin technology and machine learning have been emerging technologies in recent years. The application of these two technologies in the full life cycle management of complex equipment can make each stage of the life cycle more responsive, predictable, and adaptable. This paper first proposes a technical system that embeds machine learning modules into digital twins. Next, on this basis, a full life cycle digital twin for complex equipment is constructed, and joint application of sub-models and machine learning is explored. Then, the application of a combination of the digital twin in maintenance with machine learning in predictive maintenance of diesel locomotives is presented. The effectiveness of the proposed management method is verified by experiments. The abnormal axle temperature can be alarmed about one week in advance. Lastly, possible application advantages of the combination of digital twin and machine learning in addressing future research direction in this field are introduced.
