Full Professor Dynamics based Maintenance

About Me

Tiedo Tinga (1973) is a professor in Dynamics based Maintenance at the faculty of Engineering Technology, with a background in Materials Science and Mechanical Engineering. His research focuses on the detection and prediction of failures in systems, with the aim of developing smart maintenance concepts, like Predictive Maintenance. The is achieved by combining the Physics of Failure, thorough understanding of the (dynamic) system behaviour and advanced (condition) monitoring techniques, as well as data science and artificial intelligence.
