NASA Prognostics Center of Excellence Data Set Repository [Mirror]

This is a mirror of https://www.nasa.gov/content/prognostics-center-of-excellence-data-set-repository.

The Prognostics Data Repository is a collection of data sets that have been donated by universities, agencies, or companies. The data repository focuses exclusively on prognostic data sets, i.e., data sets that can be used for the development of prognostic algorithms. Most of these are time-series data from a prior nominal state to a failed state. The collection of data in this repository is an ongoing process.

Publications making use of databases obtained from this repository are requested to acknowledge both the assistance received by using this repository and the donators of the data. This will help others to obtain the same data sets and replicate your experiments. It also provides credit to the donators.

Users employ the data at their own risk. Neither NASA nor the donators of the data sets assume any liability for the use of the data, or any system developed using the data.

Data Sets


1. Algae Raceway

Experiments were conducted on 3 small raceways in which spirulina was inoculated. The growth and, ultimately, decline of the algae biomass was recorded along with several environmental parameters. Experiments were conducted by the Exobiology group at NASA Ames.

17. Turbofan Engine Degradation Simulation-2

The generation of data-driven prognostics models requires the availability of data sets with run-to-failure trajectories. To contribute to the development of these methods, the data set provides a new realistic data set of run-to-failure trajectories for a small fleet of aircraft engines under realistic flight conditions. The damage propagation modelling used for the generation of this synthetic data set builds on the modeling strategy from previous work. The data set was generated with the Commercial Modular Aero-Propulsion System Simulation (C-MAPSS) dynamical model. The data set has been provided by the NASA Prognostics Center of Excellence (PCoE) in collaboration with ETH Zurich and PARC.


18. Fatigue Crack Growth in Aluminum Lap Joint

Fatigue experiments were conducted on aluminum lap-joint specimens, and lamb wave signals were recorded for each specimen at several time points (i.e., defined as number of cycles in fatigue testing). Signals from piezo actuator-receiver sensor pairs were reported and it was observed that these signals were directly related to the crack lengths developed during fatigue testing. Optical measurements of surface crack lengths are also provided as the ground truth. The data set is split in training and validation to facilitate the application of data-driven methods. This data set was generated at Arizona State University by Prof. Yongming Liu, Dr. Tishun Peng, and their collaborators. The data set was used for the Prognostics Health Management (PHM) Data Challenge for the 2019 Conference on Prognostics and Health Management. Other than the data set authors, the following people helped put together the 2019 PHM data challenge and make the data set publicly available. Matteo Corbetta and Portia Banerjee (KBR, Inc, NASA Ames), Kurt Doughty (Collins Aerospace), Kai Goebel (PARC), and Scott Clements (Lockheed Martin).
