Junichi Hongu

A PhD candidate student in design engineering at Kyoto Institute of Technology (KIT), Junichi Hongu began research in 2010 on application of neural oscillators for vibration control at KIT’s Precision Manufacturing Laboratory. He subsequently in 2013 became a member of the project team researching gear failure by vibration analysis. (Bio last updated 2015-03-01 Contact Randy Stott, Managing Editor, with changes.)

  • Fundamental Study of Detection of Plastic Gear Failure Signs (March/April 2015)
    This paper proposes a new method — using neural oscillators — for filtering out background vibration noise in meshing plastic gear pairs in the detection of signs of gear failure. In this paper these unnecessary frequency components are eliminated with a feed-forward control system in which the neural oscillator’s synchronization property works. Each neural oscillator is designed to tune the natural frequency to a particular one of the components.
