Biography

Graduating from the University of Leeds in 1987, Professor Andrew Ball attained a first class honours B.Eng in Mechanical Engineering. His degree had been sponsored by BICC. Professor Ball, then went on to work for Ruston Gas Turbines, later with the Ministry of Defence, and then gained a sponsorship from WM Engineering and the Royal Navy, enabling him to join the Total Technology Scheme at the University of Manchester, graduating in 1991 with a PhD in Machinery Condition Monitoring.

Taking the Shell Lectureship in Maintenance Engineering at the University of Manchester in 1990, Professor Andrew Ball was promoted to Professor of Maintenance Engineering in 1999 to 2003. Following on from this he was then Head of School from 2003 to 2004.

In 2005 he became Dean of Graduate Education and in late 2007 moved to the University of Huddersfield as Professor of Diagnostic Engineering and Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Enterprise.

Over the 20 years that he has been an academic Andrew has established the largest independent plant maintenance and diagnostics research group in the world. The Diagnostic Engineering Research Group aims to advance the scope and sensitivity of machinery fault detection and diagnosis and of plant performance and emissions monitoring. The philosophy is to use routine instrumentation where possible, to apply sophisticated signal processing, to develop non-intrusive on-line techniques and to focus upon incipient faults with the intention of predicting future behaviour. The group is recognised internationally for its specialism in:

  • Machinery condition monitoring, fault detection and diagnosis
  • Signal processing, feature extraction and pattern recognition
  • Vibro-acoustic and vibro-impact analysis
  • Model based and predictive methods
  • Sensor development & novel measurement
  • Non-intrusive parameter estimation

Andrew’s personal research expertise is in the detection and diagnosis of faults in mechanical, electrical and electro-hydraulic machines, and in data analysis and signal processing. He is the author of well over 200 technical and professional publications, and he has spent a large amount of time lecturing and consulting to industry in all parts of the world.

Andrew has to date graduated more than 30 research degrees, in the fields of Mechanical, Electrical and Diagnostic Engineering. He has acted as external examiner at over 15 institutions and has held honorary positions at 3 overseas universities. He is also a Registered Expert Witness in 3 countries.
