The fourth 2016 issue of Acta IMEKO is published
From the Editorials to the issue:
in the first part of this issue, ACTA IMEKO publishes ten papers that were originally presented at the 14th IMEKO TC10 Workshop on Technical Diagnostics in Milan (Italy) and that are here presented in their extended versions. Technical diagnostics is taking in the years an increasingly important role. Behind this, the fact that in high-tech industry and in different fields of application it is mandatory to fulfil the requirements related to diagnostics, reliability, maintainability and logistic support as well as risk and safety assessment. The capability to monitor and diagnose a component, a system, an equipment or an industrial plant – in general term, an item – with the aim to verify its functions represents the starting point for more complex RAMS (Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety) evaluations and assessment. The 14th IMEKO TC10 Workshop was held at the Politecnico di Milano, Italy, on June 27-28, 2016. The preparation of the technical program was particularly challenging since 95 abstracts were received from all over the world and the final program hosted 39 oral and 42 poster papers scheduled over two days."
