In this study, using the collected experimental data [14], the desired features are obtained by processing signal in time and frequency domains, for ball bearings in conditions of faultless, outer ring fault, inner ring fault and are given to teaching to neural network input.
Also, the inner ring and outer ring fault frequency are obtained through the following relation, respectively:

In this part the aim is separating safe and faulty ball bearings in two modes of outer ring fault and inner ring fault.
Number of samples that are used for training in this part is 40 samples related to outer ring fault, 40 samples related to inner ring fault.
Number of samples that are used for training in this part is 20 samples related to outer ring fault, 20 samples related to inner ring fault.
1d Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), the interruption of which signals a ring fault, the S-Ring protocol forces an immediate re-routing in a ring, thus effecting renewed data flow around the fault in 1-2 seconds.
Surface mapping and sampling by Seabridge during 2005 have traced part of an arcuate ring fault along the edge of the basin which may have been the conduit for precious metals in the system.
Our geological interpretation points to the potential for a higher-grade Goldfields style vein deposit within the ring fault.
A total of 878 soil and rock chip samples identified the ring fault structure as a possible source for gold concentrations.
Geologic and alteration mapping and geophysical surveys have identified a major system of ring faults defining a large domal feature averaging 2,100 meters in diameter that appears to control the emplacement of ore in the existing open pits and present reserve base.
