Use of simulation data is necessary for training fault diagnostic models because there is an insufficient amount of fault data available for intricate supercritical flexible shafting. A hybrid dynamic modelling approach combining finite element and lumped mass techniques was used to construct dynamic models of the system in both normal and fault states. The simulation signals corresponding to each state were obtained through numerical calculations and subsequently compared with the existing literature to ensure the accuracy and validity of the dynamic model. By establishing this foundation, dependable training data can be acquired for fault diagnosis within a system. A deep residual neural network with a multi-scale convolution kernel (MSResNet) was used to conduct fault diagnosis of the flexible shafting. The efficacy of the suggested approach was substantiated through an experimental analysis. The outcomes of this research establish a theoretical foundation for fault diagnosis of flexible shafting in scenarios with an insufficient number of fault samples.
