  • Wavelet transform (WT) has been used in the diagnosis of cracked rotors since the 1990s. At present, WT is one of the most commonly used tools to treat signals in several fields. Understandably, this has been an area of extensive scientific research, which is why this paper aims to summarize briefly the major advances in the field since 2008. The present review considers advances in the use and application of WT, the selection of the parameters used, and the key achievements in using WT for crack diagnosis.
